Roof framing in a Layout


Recommended Posts

That will entail a lot of work.  While Chief produces a detail view of every single truss type for a job, that is as far as it goes.  No such thing exists for rafters, beams, headers, studs, or any other framing members.


You will need to take a back-cut section view of every member you want to detail, then do a CAD detail from view of that, edit as needed, and then dimension and annotate as needed.  Even before you begin, your framing will need to be gone over with a fine toothed comb to ensure it is all correct and in accord with how you intend to build.


You will be using point-to-point dimensioning a lot when detailing the rafters.  A quick look is attached.  I just popped in some dims on a live section.
