X7 Hollowcore Plank library with four subfolders:


1. CAD Sections. These are CAD cross-sections; each section is a CAD Block consisting of a perimeter shape and individual voids. Insert layer is CAD, Default.

2. Face Sections. These are the CAD cross-sections saved as a 3D Face to allow creating custom length extrusions; just explode the Architectural Block, select the face, and extrude. You could easily extract these faces from the solids (see #3), but I've included them for convenience. Insert layer is Slabs.

3. Solids (Architectural Blocks). These are solids saved as Architectural Blocks; the intent is to provide something that can be trimmed with another solid to allow creating planks with cut ends or holes. Insert layer is Slabs.

4. Symbols. These are the solids converted to a symbol to allow for easy stretching in the depth direction to provide planks of varying lengths. Insert layer is Slabs.


Using a combination of these types you should be able to create almost any plank layout you need.

      In South Florida, homes are prominently constructed out of concrete blocks, metal studs & beams, concrete headers/lentils/beams, and wooden trusses. Which software would you recommend that would be best suited for concrete home construction? 
      Also, I can't find any training videos for CA that uses concrete blocks and therefore I wanted to ask you all if you know of any videos or tutorials for CA... Or maybe one of the aforementioned software would be better suited for concrete block construction?

      I am drawing an outside stairway to the upstairs for an entrance of a duplex. How can I change the decking to be concrete? i can edit the beams and posts to be iron and the stairs and the railings but the decking I have not figured out how to edit.
