Post and Beam Framing

Recommended Posts

So I have been using Designer Suite but am testing out Pro because I have not been able to design a Post and Beam structure. Has anyone designed such a structure? How does one draw posts and beams with this? I looked at the Deck but that didn't seem to be the ticket. Does one have to draw each post using the 3D CAD section?  Or does one just use a structural wall then edit everything out in the framing view?

Thanks

Steve

It depends on how the frame is structured. Are you talking about traditional mortise and tenon -- or something similar?

 

You can use railing walls -- post to beam. 

 

Or use the framing tools to locate the posts and beams manually.

 

How will you enclose the structure?

Thanks for the information. It is not Mortise and tenon but rather post and beam using steel plates and bolts for the joints and construction screws. Very strong and much easier to build as well as cheaper in cost.
