framing > create joists from poly...

Recommended Posts

For the type of custom stuff you are (or seem to be) describing I would suggest using the Framing Member tool. You can create one or more objects then copy, paste, duplicate, rotate, move, etc as required.

Posting an image of your structure would probably be helpful...

Additionally, it is generally helpful for you to create a Forum Signature which includes your OS Flavor and version and VW's version.

ok...sorry...i know framing member, but framing member seems pretty useless to me, barely an advantage over conventional cad modeling. I need to find a way (learning to build bim models...by the way) to efficiently model these things. Thats why i thought i was onto something with the create framing from poly command. Thats exactly the kind of tool i need, but I cant get it work work outside of the ground plane (x,y)?

are their scripts available? or ways around this problem?

adjusting the working plane?


there has to be something...i can't be the first person who realized this.

is vectorworks bim underdeveloped compared to revit?

or is it targeted to modeling residential or light construction only?
