horizontal furring in a wall definition

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make a wall type showing 1x3 furring strips applied horizontal to the studs that shows in a cross section? Thank you in advance for your time and advice.

I'm not the expert here, but I've never seen that capability in X8. Don't think it is in X9 either.  Based on what I do know, you most likely will have to address it with notes, and add it in cad details.  You can make a wall type, adding it as a layer, I don't think however; that you can note in the wall definition what it actually is, although you can add it in the "wall type" box as "4" (whatever thickness the wall should be) exterior/interior whichever, wall with horizontal furring at thus and thus, and use that in your wall types schedules (if you do one). Again, though, you could add a balloon on your floor plan of the particular wall(s) that will have this Horizontal furring, and explain what it is supposed to be/do, I would think.

Here is some discussion on current workarounds from a previous thread:

Bob & Chopsaw..............................Cad details is the way I went. In the wall definition I just left a 3/4" airspace and then in cross sections drew in cross boxes to represent the furring. Thanks for your time and advice. Have a great day.
