Here in Minnnesota, we set our tubs to framing,(bathrooms are usually framed 60 1/8") then drywall to the flange, tapers infill and tidy up around the tub shower wall edges.  My chief tub/showers always want to set against the drywall.  Is this a personal problem or is this a construction method difference between regions.  I know you out west folk do things odd sometimes.

Ryan,  I think if you adjust the size of the Symbols' "Bounding Box" you can get the Tub to fit to the framing.  It's a little tricky and CA should probably have made those adjustments in their OOB Symbols.

I can get the tubs to set correct using a point to point move.  My comment was directed more to why is this set up like this?  Are we in doing this differently than the majority of users in other areas.

Don't think it's any different anywhere else. Specs for every tub I know of mount to the studs. Only way to prevent water seepage. Pretty sure it just has to do with Chiefs symbols and bounding box. At least it no longer prevents you from dropping a 60" tub into a 59" space, you just have to move it (and the faucet doesn't display properly)

It would be ideal if tubs cut the sheet rock when dropped in-the way material regions cut parent layers.
