Recommended Posts

I'm trying to draw a wooden wall ballon frame and I do not know how to do it, has anyone already dealt with this problem? Did he solve it?
thank you

"Balloon Framing" is a (sort-of outdated) label for what is more commonly called "wooden stud framing". Several of the standard Wall Styles that come in Vectorworks content supplied with Vectorworks Architect have wood-stud components. Do you want to model the studs individually? If so, look at the Wall Framer command in the AEC menu.

Typically "Balloon Framing" means that the studs are continuous across multiple stories.

Agreed, this is why "balloon framing" is kind of obsolete 😋. (You can't find long pieces of lumber that are straight enough to do this any more.)

Thanks for the quick reply. In fact I have to make a frame insulation with and then cover it with wooden boards. An 8x6 cm wood frame with wood fiber insulation, Wood fiber insulation 8cm, breathable barrier, wood frame 4x4 cm and wood panelig 2cm. I try with Wall Framer command in the AEC.
