Use Short Noggings
Use Short Noggings – makes short noggings between studs, instead of long ones.

Example with metal frame: Use Short Noggings is switched ON:
Rotate by Slope
(in Floor+, Floor+M, Roof+, Roof+M)
Rotate by Slope – rotates additional bridging/nogging/blocking by floor slope.
Select Line Based Element
Select Line Based Element – adds blocking/nogging/bridging according to selected line-based element.
Offset from Selected Element – writes an offset for adding blocking/nogging/bridging from selected line-based element.
Example with metal frame: when Offset from Selected Element = 0, Select Line-Based Element = opening header:
Example: when Offset from Selected Element = -200, Select Line-Based Element = opening header:
Split Studs/Joists – splits studs near inserted blocking/nogging/bridging.
Offset – predefines the offset rule (from shorter or longer stud end or base. This function works for studs that are not split. It is especially used with sloped walls.
Stud end is at the top of the wall, and base is at the bottom of the wall.
Offset from Top/Bottom – predefines the offset from top or bottom of the stud.
Spacing – distance between blockings/noggings/bridgings.
Number – number of blockings/noggings/bridgings.
