Too Many Floor Joists are being created

Recommended Posts

Im using Home Designer Pro 2016.

When I Build framing the program creates too many floor joists. Im new and not an architect but all i want is I-Joists straight across my building and when it creates them it looks like some of the area is right but then it doubles them up in different areas. In build framing the spacing is at 16" so I'm not sure why it overrides this.

Please post the plan file. Make sure it's not open in the software.

If you build the wall framing you will see the doubles are supporting walls.

 

I rarely do framing, and cannot run Pro to investigate further. I do believe you can manually frame the floor structure however you like, or you could auto frame the floor, turn off auto framing and edit what was generated.

That is what I did -- use auto frame and edit.  I noticed extra joists as well -- didn't know why but do now.

When I generate roof planes I always then manually edit the result to get what I want. The same is true for framing, you carefully set defaults and settings  and then manually edit that result as well.
