Simple Floor Framing Question...

Recommended Posts

...I'm on the second floor. I spec my floor framing as 14" TJI's (not important). I hit the auto framing button in build framing. I look and there's no floor framing showing. Ah that's because I have to go down to the first floor - it's showing there as ceiling framing.

 

I've worked like this forever and might be missing something. Any tips/tricks or this just how CA works?

 

thanks

I think this is just how Chief works Larry, and how most plans are set up anyway...with the floor framing being displayed on the floor below.

I'm curious though are you just building ceiling framing or are you utilizing the lower half of the build framing dbx (the subfloor/build floor framing section)?

I thought so. My mind gets all logical at times thinking one would show floor framing on the floor it pertains to but there are conventions I suppose.

 

I just hit auto frame and adjust manually from there. Doesn't matter I don't think - it will show where Chief decides it should show. I'm over it.
