Rafter and Joist Layouts

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to get a ceiling joist and rafter layout.  How are rafters and joists isolated so that they can be transformed into construction drawings?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

The visibility of objects, like rafters and joist, is dependent on Layer Display Options. Turn layer display on or off to see, or not see objects on those layers.

Thanks for the tip on signatures. Its Pro 2021 (New to all of this)

I found it now in layout. Seems like a lot of clicking to isolate it out, but it does work.

Thanks
