Framing Configuration may be found in two locations:
Floor Framing – Common Joists
Align with Project Base Point
Align with Project Base Point – allows joists to be positioned not only in relation to each other but according to Revit gridlines.
First step – unclip the state of the Revit Project Base Point and move it to the needed position:
For more convenience, switch on Revit Work Plane and move it to the Project Base Point. It will help you to understand if the studs or joists are created in the right position:
Turn on Align with Project Base Point in the Framing Configuration dialog:
Frame the walls, floors, or roof.
Joists are positioned on the gridlines – and where necessary to fill in gaps or form intersections – so that they always match up across a corridor or room.
Notice how the joists are spaced according to the grid.
In case you need to relocate the frame, just move the Project Base Point to the new position and update the frame!
Joist Spacing and First/Last Spacing
Joist Spacing – defines the distance between joists.
First/Last Spacing – first spacing will be on the side of the span direction line, and last on the opposite side.
Rotate by Slope
Number of Elements not to Cut
Number of Elements not to Cut – if there is at least one rim joist 1, you can cut it or leave it as a whole.
Top Cover/Bottom Pad Type
Top Cover/Bottom Pad will be added above/below the main frame.
Offset – frame offsets from floor end or base.
