Framing Configuration may be found in two locations:
Use for all Framing Elements (except Openings) – if ON, then the selected Stud and Plate 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 Studs (or Plates) – pick a family and type for the Studs or Plates.
Sample stud and plate families come with Wall+M:
For C+C system − M_MF C+C Stud and M_MF C+C Plate
For C+C Chamfered system − M_MF C+C_CH Stud and M_MF C+C_CH Plate
For C+U system − M_MF Stud-Joist and M_MF Track
M goes for Metric system, I goes for Imperial.
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 wall layer thickness so that the frames will fit the layer in the wall.
Wall Frame Panels – if ON, then wall frames are assembled in factory; if OFF – assembled on-site.
