When calculating framing quantities, how do I know the quantity is not including truss framing members

Recommended Posts

I want to calculate all the lumber for my house, but I want to make sure that truss member are not included. How do I know that my materials list excludes this?

 

Thanks!

Add a truss, or delete a truss, run a materials list and see if the numbers change.

On x11 you can right-click and "find in the plan". Whatever X11 shows you for stud count is incorrect because it assumes like 50' [whole wall] sections.

In addition odd shaped walls sometimes give you really funky results, and watch for attic framing, none of it may be needed.
