joist spacing

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have different OC spacing in a floor system.  ie - 16" O.C in one section and 12" O.C. in another.  I'm sure I can do this manually but can it be done automatically???

thanks,

 Yes,  use the joist direction arrow,  change spacing in arrow,  divide different spaces with BEARING WALLS  .

You can also just use a bearing line as a separator.

Thanks Scott & Perry,  I thought I read a post about a month ago where nobody could figure this out, so thanks, great stuff to know.  I need that for my next build.

JOHNNY, ARE YOU TALKING SIMPLY MANUAL VS. AUTO.  Because I assume that once you have you bearing line or wall then you can auto frame or revise and reframe.  I have clients that change their minds a lot.
