Laying-out/Dimensioning Interior Partitions to Structural Framing

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Situation: 2x4 interior partition with 1/2-inch thick gypsum board on each side. Total wall thickness = 4 1/2-inches. Structural framing thickness = 3 1/2-inches.

Question: How to lay-out and dimension interior partition wall to the structural framing thickness, instead of the finished wall thickness.

Thank you,

I think I figured it out:

Select check-mark at desired wall component within the Wall Preferences dialog box to identify structural wall core.

Then when drawing walls...at the wall tool options, select: Core Component Control Line Mode to justify wall lay-out and dimensioning to the structural wall core previously identified within the Wall Preferences dialog box.
