Copy Modified Framing to another Floor?

Recommended Posts

I recently posted a similar question dealing with modified floor trusses and "Solver" came through with the solution.  This question deals with modified wall framing.  I have a considerable amount of a 2x6 wall footprint with staggered 2x4's @ 12" o.c. being used as a "Marriage Wall" in a multi-family structure.  The only method I could come up with to accomplish this was to create the 2x6 wall, re-size the studs and shift them into the correct alignment within the wall assembly.  This process is very time consuming, so I am hoping to only do this once, then copy to addition floors having the same floor plan.  I can copy and paste the studs on the same floor in any location I want without a problem, but copying and pasting to another floor results in error message telling me the objects cannot be pasted to the new location.  Turning the grouped studs into a CAD symbol will get me the 2D and 3D visual, but not a framing quantity, which is one of my main objectives.

 

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks

Not sure there is a faster way other than maybe setting your first two studs and group selecting them and multi copy @ 24" O.C.
