roof lumber type

Recommended Posts

 

I have changed my rafter type to lvl my engineer said I need new spacing so I auto rebuild roof to 16" oc from 24" oc.

After doing this all of my rafters are now listed as ( lumber )  (not lvl ) trying to set default rafters to lvl when auto rebuilding so my

schedules will list proper material and size

It's helpful to post images and/or your plan file.

 

Is this set correctly?

For an Existing Roof , try the EDIT ALL Roof Planes Tool to update the structure... if tips above don't work...

this seems to work fine for me except for Ridges , I had to change the Reporting to LVL as above pic for each one manually....I used the Materials List Find in plan Feature to find the Short ones..... wouldn't be needed if entire structure was LVL as the Ridge is using the Default material report value it seems.
