Changing the 2nd Floor Joist Direction in Just One Room or Wing?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible after or as auto floor framing is activated to change the joist direction in just one room?  It seems as though CA wants all joists to go in one direction throughout a home design structure even when it results in very long spans that would not customarily be framed that way in new or old construction.

In X12 it is now possible to frame individual rooms but you may be able to add Joist direction and Bearing lines in X11 and get what you need.

Thanks, Kbird1, I will study up on bearing lines I don't believe I've ever encountered the need.

And thank you, rgradner, I will upgrade to 12 asap.

one tip, you need to have at least 2 framing direction lines (in different directions) before you get the framing to change
