Material List

Recommended Posts

I made a wall type with #2 SPF for the framing.  When I build the material list it shows fir framing and when I open the components of the wall it shows #2 SPF.  Is this normal?  I was thinking that the materials list would reflect the components also in wall types I changed the framing to #2 SPF.

The materials list shows the "material" Create a material for SPF #2 and change the stud material to that from fir framing.

Thanks Joey.    Yes I made a material (#2 SPF) and saved it in my user library and changed the changes.  Still it list the studs as fir.  Also the siding has the #2 SPF??????????  The material was selected as framing and you would think it would be listed under F1 and not GN1.  Any ideas?

FWIW, I get the same kind of result. I use a custom material for all my framing, but the Materials List displays it all as "fir stud", "fir plate", etc.

Check this out:  When I change the "Pattern" to custom it shows SPF, but if I choose "material type", framing in the pattern I get fir.  What gives with this?  I thought choosing framing was the correct thing.
