Framing Tools


The structure parameters of layered wall and horizontal structures are defined for each layer separately using a framing tool. The tool determines the design rules based on which parts (such as studs, rafters and sheets) are added to the layer.

The framing tools for the layers of a structure can already be set in the structure library. You can change the tool during designing and edit its parameters. Always recreate the structure parts when you have edited a tool.

  • You can change or edit the framing tool of a wall, floor, ceiling or roof layer by editing the structure properties. Once the panel breaks have been generated, changes made to the wall, floor, ceiling or roof are no longer transferred to the panel. After this, the changes in framing tool need to be made for the panel and its layers.
