Deck Framing Fix

Recommended Posts

So I eventually need to put a deck underneath the one there. How do I go about demonstrating the framing on the plans without the two interfering with each other?

 

P.S. - Sorry if these questions seem rudimentary

Main floor deck framing will show up on Level 0 the same as 1st floor sub floor framing will show up on top of your foundation.

 

If you need to break from common standards you can set up a reference layer to show on another level.

      Hello.
       
      I am having issues with an exterior wall. 
      There seems to be a random base plate that is generating a few feet about the first floor level.
      It appears that this plate may also be causing an issue up at the second floor where there is a hole in the exterior wall.
      I try deleting the base plate, but I am not able to select.
      How can I fix this so that the exterior wall generates properly.
      Any feedback is appreciated.
      Thank you kindly. 
       
      See the areas circled in orange on the attached photos.

      I'm having an issue where the framing members for a flat roof (1/4" slope) over a porch are not displaying correctly in the cross section. My default setting for rafter size and the specification in the roof plane dialogue for that roof plane are set to 5 1/2", but it always draws the cross section as a 2x4. If I select any of the framing members individually and open the dialogue box, it says it's 5 1/2". The trusses and framing for the rest of the house all come in correctly. Any quick thoughts come to mind?
       
      also, Is it better to upload a screen shot showing the problem or the whole file on here?

      Using X13. Have "framing default" checked for "Allow Automatic Balloon Framing"...but, as you can see in the picture below it's not working. I have auto framing walls turned on...experimented with the joist direction...didn't seem to have an effect. 
       
      I'm on a MAC...maybe this is a reason? Does anybody know if this new feature in X13 actually works? 
       
      Thanks!

      The lengths of framing members in schedules, i.e. rafters, joists, etc appear to be expressed in fractional inches by default.
      Can that be changed to be expressed in feet and fractional inches.
