Framing Configuration may be found in two locations:
Brace – settings where you can predefine rules for adding regular braces, corner braces, or brace groups.
Braces can be added after Wall+M → Add/Modify Bracing:
Use Main Types – brace family and type will be taken from Common Settings tab.
Type – select the family and type that will be used for the brace.
Width (b) – shows b size of selected type.
Depth (h,d) – shows h or d size of selected type.
Define Depth (h,d) by Layer Thickness – Wall+M will automatically create new type for selected family with new depth equal to selected wall layer thickness.
Rotate 90° and 180°
Rotate 90° – if ticked, then bracing rotates by 90 degrees.
Rotate 180° – if ticked, then bracing rotates by 180 degrees. Rotation depends on how the profile in the family is created.
Minimum Angle and Maximum Angle – define angle limits for adding bracing.
Cut Studs and Cut Bridging/Nogging
Cut Studs – select bracing and stud connection cutting type.
Cut Bridging/Nogging – select bracing and bridging or nogging connection cutting type.
Brace Connection Offset from Stud or Plate/Bridging/Nogging
Brace Connection Offset from Stud – enter a distance between bracing and stud.
Brace Connection Offset from Plate/Bridging/Nogging – enter a distance between bracing and plate, bridging, or nogging.
Example, Brace Connection Offset from Stud = 3":
Build in Place
Build in Place – writes Yes/No information into the brace instance parameter if it is build-in-place or is prefabricated with the whole wall frame. Later this parameter can be used in schedules or view filters.
