Joist and Hanger Symbols in resource manager?

Recommended Posts

I'm drawing  some details in Landmark and was wondering if there where preinstalled End View Joist and/or Joist Hanger symbols in the resource manager.


A quick search for 2 x 4,  stud, joist, joist hanger, hanger has come up with metal joist and other objects - but not what I'm looking for.


I'm sure I'm just searching for the wrong term, or are these more something that one would make themselves?



Also, I found the screw tools in the detailing tool set, is there a 'nail tool' too?

As far as I know the only joist hangers included in VW's are part of the Framing Member Plug In and only for Top/Plan View.


For details (front and side views) I go the the Simpson site and download their .dwg files, then import (into a separate file!) and clean them up. Over the years I have amassed a fairly large collection of the most commonly used ones which I keep up to date in their own VW's document (you could also use this document as a resource, making it browsable in all documents).


As for nails, it's easy to draw one and use it. Depending on the scale, two lines in a "T" shape might be adequate. You could also maybe use the "Screw" with no threads.
