No Deck Framing

Recommended Posts

When I draw a deck it will not auto frame.  I have the Auto Frame checkbox checked and the approbate layers are turned on.  I can't figure out why the deck framing won't work.  Has anyone had this issue before or have some suggestions?

Thanks

Right Click on the Deck and select "Create Deck Framing".  Decks don't use the regular "Floor Framing" tool.

It's weird but that doesn't work,  I've turned on all layer to see if I'm missing something.

guessing

Make sure that room (deck) is closed

Open this deck room and make sure it knows it's a deck

Go to the deck tab and make sure auto deck frame is checked

Go to "all on " layer set and select all on, again?

spin the house every which way and take a look,,,,

 

out of guesses!  :-)

Thanks for all the suggestions. This isn't happening on just one plan.  RayCas, I've tried those to make sure I wasn't missing something simple.  Still no deck framing

Is there a certain type of joist material to use for deck joist maybe?

I figured it out, it was the wrong material for framing
