Request Additional Feature for Mass Wall Construction
« on: October 11, 2021, 01:37:19 am »
Nathan, request an Additional Feature to account for other walls types, the wall extension under Global Settings-Walls-Wall Framing Settings Includes: “Yes, No, 2D, CMU” request an additional Selection be added to account for Mass Walls:  including “Concrete, Adobe and PISE-Rammed Earth and Possibly Custom Wall” along with Bond Beam-Tie Beam that are located at each story, these are similar to your Strip Footing Tool located in the Foundation Extension.   

With Masonry Walls Types comes several additional Features Under Global Settings-Doors and Windows Settings: Add: Lintels   
I can send a few Sketchup Models to Illustrate these additional Construction Types if needed.

Any consideration for adding these enhancements would be greatly appreciated

Thank You,
Wayne

I would be interested in what you would like to see for lintels, screen shots or other detail drawings would be good.
