Pole barn blocking and framing


Recommended Posts

i am building a demo model of a pole barn for a potential client. I need to provide diagonal x blocking between the first two poles adjacent to each corner from slab level at the corner and top of the poles. I show a kludged cad box filled orange and a CAD line showing the desired path in the cross section view. I have searched both the Help and Knowledge Base to no avail...Help would be much appreciated.

 

As an aside, if I can close the deal, I will be upgrading to CA X12. I have been working on the project in the trial version and realize it is a better product.

 

Regards

Thanks...

 

DJP...I looked at that KB before I posted...I do not see any advice within regarding angled wall braces...

 

Eric...I am aware of using a backsplash for a workaround but was hoping for a framing solution..

 

Is there a way to draw framing members at a "Z" axis angle?...or a way to rotate the framing in "Z" axis

 

Regards

I have been unable to select the framing member and have it have a rotation handle on Z axis...it will rotate on x or y axis

 

A picture of what you want, or a verbal description always helps.

 

I'll make a guess. 

 

What would happen if you select a framing member, lets say a 2x4 from a wall, open it and change it into a 4x2.

 

Does that make sense?

for 45 degree angled objects you can use a sloped, custom shaped soffit or use the custom backsplash to create custom shaped objects in Pro. You often have to think out of the box to get everything done graphically speaking.

I have not been able to use a framing tool that will rotate around the axis
