WALL FRAMING NOT WORKING

Question

Vectoerworks 18 will not produce framing for any walls that I draw. I repeatedly get a message telling me that there must be one wall on the layer that I am working in. There is infact a wall in the layer I am working in, it has a class atached to it. I included screen shots of each step but still nothing. ANy ideas?

I believe your file needs to have at 2 Layers and then run the Layer selection in the dialogue.

Doo you need to put a check mark next to the layers you want to frame?

I think Boh is right about the check mark.

 

But on another issue, be very careful with names in VW.  Layers have a different "Name Space" than classes and other objects, but if you had a class named "Wall" you would not be able to create any wall objects in the file.  A name in VW can only apply a one and only one objects.

make sure you have selected a class that has walls. Not the class of the wall component, the class of the overall wall.

 

start with the name of the wall framing model

then choose the layer

Choose the class of the walls

now click OK

Thank you everyone for the clear and easy to follow help. I actually figured it out right after I asked the question, I made the mistake of thinking that a highlighted layer was a checked layer.
