Any Kiwis out there?

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm wondering if there are any kiwis out there that have templates that are New Zealand compliant for timber frame dwellings. I can't find a way to add purlins, nogs etcand am wondering if someone either knows how to do it and/or has saved templates.

Welcome to the forum.

 

Which software title and version are you using?

 

If you have HD Pro, you can add these structural framing members manually.  For that matter, Home Designer Professional is really the only software title in the Home Designer line that gives you full control over the model's framing.

I think Elovia is correct you would need HD Pro  or Chief  as you need manual framing tools I think , as neither Purlins or nogs are used in North America usually and that is where the software is designed.

 

There are a couple of guys on the Chief Talk Forum , NickNZ in Whangarei   and Bernie in Hamilton you could email or call perhaps ,his site is here.

Glenn Woodward is very good in Chief and likes to help other Users and may have a work around for you , though he is in Sydney but the same building styles there
