Change floor joists spacing in one area

Recommended Posts

I need to change the floor joist spacing to 12" o.c. for one room in my basement (due to the span).  I know I can undo auto floor framing and do it manually but is there a way to set it up so I can keep the auto framing on?

Yes a "Joist Direction" indicator has settings that will control that for you.  Build Framing> Joist Direction.

I had tried that but it changed all my joists to 12" spacing.  Once I added two more joist direction indicators (one on the left side and one on the right side of the area I wanted changed to 12" it worked perfectly.  Thank you.

Segregate the room with 'bearing lines' then open the joist direction dbx and change the spacing there.
