Vertical framing members - studs, please!

Question

I make lots of framing-drawings, not only for decks and roofs, but also for walls to produce drawings and take-off for flat-element production of walls. Today, there is no other way to do this than to draw the walls laying flat on the ground - since there is no tool for a simple, vertical stud. I am not talking of automatically generated wall-framing but manually made drawings with take-off and pre-cut lists on all framing-members in the wall in order to build it finished with windows, doors, electrical installations etc. on factory before assembling on site. It would be enormously helpful to be able to draw a simple, vertical stud with ID and take-off (so: not extrude), and thereby also be able to use those wall-drawings in a BIM model/ifc.
