Production Drawings

Recommended Posts

Howdy (1st post!)

 

Am I missing something but it seems we cannot easily generate production drawings for the builder like rafter profiles, sheating cuts, etc.

The closest I was able to get was a Wall Production drawing through the wall details view.

 

More specifically, I'm looking for something to Solid Builder's outputs

Is there an add-on, etc?

 

Thanks

yes I bought it a long time ago and just recently he did have an upgrade with some nice features and being able to save well worth the money as far as I am concerned, alot of times I split the span of the rafters and have a knee wall for the first set and the second set goes to the ridge, I did this when I built my house and have exported files to put on plans that I draw for a reference for the client to his builder, tell Brian I sent you even though we have never met

I find that easyrafters is quiet accurate when it come to sizing and showing rafter cuts, tell Brian I sent you even though we have never met

You mean there is a program that spits out the cut length of all members for roof and rake wall framing?

 

Man- I wasted a whole lot of years teaching those kids under me how to first use a full length rafter bible and the a construction master calculator in the field. :rolleyes:

Why can’t you just use your Solidbuilder output and add it to your layout?

I got easyrafters because I didn't want to learn another program even though I did try solid builder but had a lot of time into chief and with being able to use a macro to show rafter lengths we have to let them do some thinking in the field that is how I learned
