Wall Framing/Roof Framing

Recommended Posts

Why is it that when I select my walls and tell VW to do a "Wall Framer" it asks me to do a new Mod layer? I set up templates that already have these design layers and corresponding sheet layers added. Should I delete my framing layers in my templates and then have it create them when I do the framing plan? What is the best procedure for this?

Are you sure you read that correctly? As a test I created framed walls on one of my projects. I see an input box in which I can place any text (limited to 8 letters) to describe the layer for the framing-- I was not limited in choosing a Mod layer.

I always use terms that are relevant to my drawing process--which is constantly changing and growing--so I don't let VW name layers or (as few as possible) classes for me.
