Framing/Lumber Sizing

Recommended Posts

When i create my roof, or even other large framed units, the material list generates dimensional lumber sizes that are not available to purchase. With the materials list set to "Buy List" style I am getting 2x6's that are over 32 feet in length. Is there any way to set defaults so that the designs will use multiple shorter lengths of lumber that are available to purchase off the shelf?

We can help you better if we know which program and year you have. Yet my 1st thought is if you look at the walls that the framing goes over, make them "bearing" walls where they would logically be and the framing will split on those walls and break them from going the full span of the building, etc.
