JohnPoulson Posted January 8, 2020 Share Posted January 8, 2020 I have framed a very large floor structure using modified floor trusses (extra verticals, 2x4 ribbon, etc.) and to keep from spending the time to modify the floor structure on the floor above, I want to copy and paste it to the upper floor. I've tried several approaches with limited success. Here is what I did. Without generating any floor framing on the upper floor, I isolated the floor structure on the lower floor, did an edit area copy and pasted Hold Position on the upper floor. In plan view, I now had the floor trusses on the upper floor, but no floor trusses visible in camera view so, I undid the paste. This time I did a window select on only the lower level floor trusses, copied and again pasted Hold Position on the upper floor. In plan view, I now had the floor trusses on the upper floor, but no floor trusses visible in camera view and did not undo the paste. This time I did a window select on only the lower level floor trusses, copied and pasted to an area outside the building envelope, still on the lower floor and pasted. I now had both plan view and camera view visible on the lower floor. In camera view I captured all of the floor trusses, moved them the known elevation of the upper floor, then did a point to point move to the correct x,y position on the upper floor. I now had plan view floor trusses visible on both floors and visually on both floors in camera view. BUT, by re-positioning the camera view trusses, I now have 2 layers of floor trusses occupying the same space on the lower level in plan view. Visually everything looks good, but my material count (which is one of the main reasons I went through this exercise) is now doubled for the lower level floor structure. Now, back to the real question. Is there a way to copy floor trusses/framing from one floor to another and have it visible in both plan view and camera view. I would think I could just re-code the pasted copies of the floor trusses on the lower level to the upper level and I would be good to go, but I'm not sure if that can be done. I've checked everywhere and cannot find a solution. Maybe I used the wrong terms in my searches, but so far I've found nothing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, John Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
