Shear Wall CAD Detail

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was wandering if any of you may have the Shear Wall CAD details (shown on some of the Chief sample layouts - see attached) to share with me. The Hold-Down and the Shear Wall schedules and the Portal Frame Elevation detail will give me a good place to start my shear wall design.

 

Best Regards,

Constantin A

Those details appear to be using Simpson's products. They should be available from Simpson's site. I have used their CAD details before but they will need to be modified for your line weights, font, text size, etc.

No, the plans are not available for download.

 

I was actually browsing the net (including strongtie.com) for quite a bit, but I couldn't find anything. I was hopping someone may have a copy that would save me time building from scratch.

 

Best regards,

Constantin A

Simpson has a plethora of details available for their lateral and uplift system components. Download this application guide, find the connection detail you need (eg D/21, etc.) then go here to download a dwg or dxf file.

 

APA has details as well. Go here to search and download.

 

Personally I'd run the numbers first to determine what the loads are, then design the system and find applicable products, and then lastly draw the details.
