Joist direction

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to change the floor joist direction on a plan . The customer made some changes and the new floor joist need to run east-west instead of north -south. I had to move beams and re-direct them but when I generate the floor joist they in their original north-south direction.

Is there an easy spin joist tool.  lol

Home Designer does not have any "Joist" tools in it as your signature inaccurately states or implies.

 

Only Home Designer Pro has such tools. As explained in your Reference Manual under "Framing" you control joist direction with the use of two tools : 1. the Joist Direction Tool, found under "Build, Framing, Joist Direction" and #2: the "Bearing Line Tool", where you can tell the software where bearing lines and stress lines change and thus joist direction changes.
