post in wall framing

Recommended Posts

I have placed a post into a basement pony wall and it shows up in plan and 3D but not in the wall detail. I am sure I am missing something simple. Doesn't show up in materials list either.

You will have to change the layer of the post for it to show in Wall Details or just manually draw it with 2D CAD.

Since you post is within the wall framing and you want to display it that way open the Wall Detail and edit that and put it in there. Just make a copy of the stud it is beside and move it over and make it 4X4.  Done!

OK simple enough. Question is why a post wouldn't show up in wall framing? And how do I get posts to show in materials list? Am still a newbie so have not gotten very far into this yet so apologies if an obvious solution.

thanks.

Why Posts are not in the material list is a valid question that I don't have an answer for.   However Posts that are within the wall framing should be drawn within the Wall Detail or you can also do it from the top view in floor plan with framing turned on.  Don't worry about being new I still have more questions than answers.
