Different framing materials show as fir stud/plate in material list

Hello,

 

I have 3 different type of walls - 2x4 spf, 2x4 LSL, 2x4 pressure treated lumber. Framing works fine, but in the material list they all show up as fir stud or fir plate, the only time I see something different than fir is when steel studs are used, but this leads to changes in the framing. I am currently using different type of depth to distinguish the materials but this changes wall thickness and leads to other problems.

 

Any help will be highly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Peter

It's helpful to have images and many times a simple plan file that demonstrates the problem. So many ways of doing things in Chief.

 

A plan with your 3 wall types for example.

 

Also good to know what software you are using. It helps others to have this info in your signature so it's always available.

 

See this topic for a signature how to.
