2 Story Detail Framed wall Cross Section

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

I wanted to know how I can show a cross section framed wall detail for a 2-story house an attached attached garage on the side. Or can it only be done by making the cross section(s) a cad drawing? I'm using C.A. x12

 

thanks all!

Not sure what you are wanting, or what is not working.

Use the back clipped Cross Section Elevation camera to cut a "slice" , then dimension and annotate as needed.

I'm trying to have the walls with the arrows drawn on them from my previous question have a final look like the framing photo I just downloaded. If the exterior wall of the garage isn't sitting under the exterior main floor(2nd story), will I need to create two separate cad details from the Wall Details, then send them to layout and stack them? Because when I use the backclipped cross section I keep getting the result showing the roof rafters from the photo below and I don't need to show the rafters. 

 

P.S.

I hope I updated my signature correctly.

This isn't something I do, so take these ideas as ideas and not best practice.

 

You can make walls temporarily invisible and the framing will not show.

 

You can turn off the display of roof framing via layer display options.

Is this something someone is specifically asking for? I've been doing this a long time, and never seen a detail like that.

No Mr. Martin. I wanted to show wall framing details for each side of the house for the General Contractor. In doing the wall framing (showing headers as well) it will unclutter my need to call out the headers in my framing plans.
