wall frame detail - showing specifics

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone

 

I need help in showing wall framing detail.

 

I want to show the following:

The framing detail showing the metal studs, metal tracks and 2 x 4 PT wood on floor with 2 x 4 brace supports - - The tracks are 16 OC and the 2 x 4 brace supports between the metal studs

 

Here are the steps that I follow to try and show the wall framing detail.

1. Select 3D Orthographic View

2. Create cross section elevation  - point camera to the wall I want to show

3. I delete all of the display options and turn on framing details only

 

Question:

1) How do I show the framing supports that are wood between the metal studs

2) How do I bring up the bottom of the new wall to show that it is sitting 5 inches above the bottom ground garage floor?

3) How do I show that I have a 2x4 wood on the bottom floor with the metal track on top?

 

I have attached a copy of the file, and two pics to show you my drawing detail.. 

 

Thanks for help in pointing me in the right direction.

Draw in a general framing member, position and size it as needed.

Guessing it's not floating in air. Maybe a pony wall?

You may need to manually draw one.

Thanks  just a few questions

 

1) How does one draw in general framing member?

 

2) When you draw the wall - It automatically takes it to the bottom of the floor?  Maybe I did not build my slab foundation properly///

 

3) I was thinkin the same thing - manually drawing the 2 x4 at bottom..

 

If you could point me in the direction of drawing a general framing member, I would appreciate it..

 

I will work on part 2 - It may be a foundation issue I need to address

 

Thanks

Do you understand about Pony Walls?

Thanks

 

1)  - I got the general framing done for my brace supports added - It worked.. Yay!!!

 

2) I understand pony walls -But do not see how they would help in this situation.

 

Is this for my floor or wall?

I'm not sure what you want to do. The wall needs to be sitting on something.

 

I was thinking a pony wall with a 5" lower wall.

You could also set the wall to have 2 bottom plates, then edit one to be wood.

Unsure why you are doing this, but if for permitting or to show a contractor, a non dimensioned drawing showing maybe 4' of the wall should be enough. Use text to convey the details.
