Framing Schedule says "FIR" need #2 SYP

Recommended Posts

Hoping this is an easy fix, but started using the Framing Schedule and all the material is fir and of course the City of Atlanta plan reviewers have no sense of humor.  Is there a way to modify all wood to #2 SYP?

Same problem in the North East with SPF and you can create a new framing material and call it what you wish then apply that to your wall and framing defaults.  Not so sure why everyone does not use SPF as it seems it would work on most of the continent.

Probably the fastest method at this point...

 

3D>Materials>Plan Materials.  Select the framing material you are using now ("Fir Stud 24" OC", "Fir Framing", "Fir", or whatever it might be), click Edit, and rename to "#2 SYP".  Now open your framing schedule and click Okay.

This does not work in the material list when changing from fir to SPF.  Only in the Framing Schedule?

Ya, Chief doesn't get its framing material definitions used in the material list from the plan materials and as far as I know there is no way to get the material list to automatically report any custom information for framing objects (unless you specify the material as something other than framing but then you have other problems to contend with).

 

I think the best (and perhaps only) way to change the material definition for framing objects in the material list is just to edit the desired field(s) directly.  You can do this pretty quickly by copying the desired material name and then selecting one or more fields and hitting Control+V (paste).
