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 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 Roof+:
Metric Joist – M_RWF Common Joist.rfa
Metric Rim Joist – M_RWF Rim-Bridging Joist.rfa
Imperial Joist – I_RWF Common Joist.rfa
Imperial Rim Joist – I_RWF 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 roof layer thickness so that the frames will fit the layer in the wall.
Roof Frame Panels – if ON, then roof frames are assembled in factory; if OFF – assembled on-site.
