Home Designer Pro 2020. How to print construction drawings.

Recommended Posts

I rented HD Pro so I could print construction drawings for framers.  I can't figure out how to do that.  Is it possible?  Thanks!

I watched the one layout video I found and followed the steps.  I got a layout file created and sent the floor plan to it.  All it did was reproduce the floor plan in the layout - no construction docs.

To specify what I'm after, I want drawings that show all framing and roof structure, with complete dimensions, to hand to the builder so he can see how to build it.

 

I'm sorry to sound so dense, but I find figuring out how to use HD to be a challenge.  That is most likely because I'm not a builder, designer, architect, etc. and none of the terminology is familiar.  Thanks!

You are responsible for these things -- the program does not do them automatically.

 

All the tools are there, you just need to learn how to use them.
