Version 2.4.7 - 10.24.2021
- Fixed a bug with shed walls for the following end configurations: Inside Corner, Inset Inside Corner.



This fix should resolve the issues we were seeing with the shed wall.  I probably missed these bug(s) initially because the inside corner with a shed wall is not very common and sometimes I don't test every possible permutation even though I should. 

I may need to go back into the gable and hip wall modules and test them a bit further.

The shed wall tool and configuration is relatively new.  With that being said I noticed yesterday there are some issues with the shed wall and "inside corners".  I will take a look at this and rectify the situation and release another update.  Having an inside corner on a shed wall is rather rare so that is probably why this managed to get past me.

Version 2.4.6 - 10.22.2021
- Added two additional advanced options for in-wall columns: Top Plt. Cut, Btm Plt. Cut.
- Added two additional parameters into the Columns tab of the global settings.
- Fixed a critical bug with the wall copy tool that was created with the prior update.
- Added error checking code into the rectangular wall edit menu for sheathing, cladding, and gypsum materials.
- Added error checking code into the window edit menu for the shutter material.



With the in-wall columns I've also changed the draw and edit tool so that the columns can be drawn at the end of the walls, there is no longer the one-stud limitation, not even sure why I added that in originally.

Previously I was issuing educational licenses for the mdkBIM suite at no charge however the shear volume of licenses has begun to overwhelm me and take up too much time (manual license creation).

I've now created an easier system to manage which allows me to quickly issue an educational discount code to the student or educator after receiving their credentials or verification.

The new discount code will allow students or educators to purchase the entire mdkBIM suite (permanent license - $280.00) at 10% of the regular cost:  $28.00 USD

First look at a couple of multi-ply stud walls:



Now I just need to do some further testing to make sure all of the other algorithms work correctly with this type of stud configuration (ie. windows, doors, insulation, blocking).

Medeek Truss Plugin / Missing Roof Elements
« Last post by waynehughes2 on October 16, 2021, 12:00:07 am »
Nathan,

A few Observations/Request:

The Rafter Tools have several missing tool elements or functions, and seem to be lagging behind in developement as compaired to the truss functions.  The following opbserations apply mostly to Rafters, and a few to Both Rafters and Truss.

a. Celings: When you enable Ceiling Joist, Missing Gypsum Ceiling and Insulation so currently Ceiling has no finish options available 
b. Rafters: Missing Gypsum and Insulation, Vaulted Ceiling would be finsihed with a Gypsum Ceiling and Insulation as well                     
c. Metal Flashing (Roof Edges and Chimneys), this would give the roof edges a finished apperance, currently the sheathing around the perimeter of the roof is visable, maybe your "Custom" option is the best solution for now, but later Chimney Tool would enhance the Extension. Currently I extend the Cladding by 1.5 Inches to overlap the Facia which conceals the sheathing. 
d. Crickets for Chimneys and other slope corrections
e. Trim, Half Round, Cove or other trim thats normally used at the wood member connections that lap or adjoin with a butt joint. Including the Sofit, Rake and transitions to walls.  This would be similair to the Moulding Tool except out side envelope. I attempted to use the moulding tool without success, as it oriented into the wall group with the interior wall.
f. Ridge Vent; Customizations, or additional options to accoult for Cold Roof Design as well as other Roof Cladding Types

These may be on your list and are still in developement for future? If so any timeline of when these elements would be added?

The Gypsum Ceiling and Insulation for both Rafters and Ceiling Joist is something should take prescedence over the other comments and would be the most benifitual now.

I cant say enough about how fantastic this extension is and how much future potential I see in its developement. 

Thank You,

Wayne
