Assign framing category to members placed using General

Recommended Posts

I used room spec NO FLAT CEILING and manually drawn ceiling planes to do a job, and of course the planes do the expected job when doing trusses, but a small part of the ceiling is stick framed and I used GENERAL framing to place ceiling joists.

 

The material list identifies them in the SUBFLOOR category.  I put them on the ceiling joists level, but see no way to modify any sort of category for getting them better placed in the material list.

Same problem as walls.   As far as I know that is hard coded for automatically generated members.  If you want it to look correct it is a matter of copying an existing member that is properly categorized.  If you do a lot of that type of thing it might make sense to keep a folder of properly labeled items in your library.

 

Actually it seems it can be customized.....    

The default comes from the %automatic_description% in Object Information, Description.

Delete that and enter your custom description there.

Yeah, that's it.  Duh.

 

Thanks.  I renamed them manually and in the other panel, took them out of the SUBFLOOR category and assigned them to FRAMING.
