Framing Configuration may be found in two locations:
Use for all Vertical/Horizontal Framing Elements (except Openings) – if ON, then the selected Joist and Rim Joist families will be used for other vertical/horizontal framing elements, like connections, bridgings, noggings, etc. without an option to change it to a custom family.
Main Type of Joists (or Rim Joists) – pick a family and type for the Joist or Rim Joist.
Sample joist and rim joist families that come with Floor+:
Metric Joist – M_WF Joist.rfa
Metric Rim Joist – M_WF Rim-Bridging Joist.rfa
Imperial Joist – I_WF Joist.rfa
Imperial Rim Joist – I_WF Rim-Bridging Joist.rfa
Do not use any other families!
You can use other families only in special cases. Contact us.
Width (b) – shows the width b parameter value of the selected family type.
Depth (h, d) – shows the depth h or d parameter value of the selected family type.
Define Depth (h, d) by Layer Thickness – the software will create a new type for the selected family and change the depth value to the floor layer thickness so that the frames will fit the layer in the wall.
Floor Frame Panels – if ON, then floor frames are assembled in factory; if OFF – assembled on site.
