auto dimension to wall framing

Gus

I wish we could autodimention to the wall framing not the extent of the wall profile (if you are using a complex profile). Framers don't care about the stuff going on the outside of the wall like stucco or siding.

Is "Dimension only the Core of Composite Walls" check box not working for you?

And remember to "Uncheck" the skins not wanted when doing as Richard suggests.

I think the keyword here is complex profile! Not composites...

Cheers,

Right as usual Link.
More speed and less haste, a case of looking and not seeing.

Bummer.... It's good news hearing that dimensioning works to the CORE of composites... but not to complex profile walls... The Complex Profiles editor even has the CORE checkbox, which does nothing as far as dimensioning is concerened. Apparantly we need a STRUCTURE layer in the complex profile editor!

uh guys... dimension to core DOES work on Profiled Walls... I'm doing it all day long. (If it isn't possible, I'd better tell my staff to stop doing it!)

I guess I should have said AUTOMATIC dimensioning...
