Messages - Medeek

The progress has been slowed by some ongoing health issues I've personally encountered however progress is being made and I am carefully coalescing on a new plugin which will replace the existing module in the Truss plugin.  Also as updates have been made with various licensing updates within the other plugins I have been migrating those updates into this new plugin.  I apologize in the significant delay with this new plugin but please remember that I am still a one man show and I am spread very thin across the development of six different plugins now.  Each plugin requires a certain amount of attention as bug fixes, updates and feature requests all consume time and energy.
Version 1.9.5 - 02.13.2024
- Improved the serial number verification logic within the License tab of the Global Settings.
- Updated the javascript logic within the License tab of the Global Settings.
- Added statistics for the following foundation types (Medeek Estimator integration): Slab-on-Grade, Slab, Stemwall, Grade Beam
Version 3.4.8 - 02.04.2024
- Added a Sheathing Reset button in the Sheathing tab of the Global Settings.
- Added Dimension Layer 5 specfically for framing/elevation auto-dimensions (Layer tab of the global settings).
- Enabled editing of dimensions for framing/elevation dimensions (rectangular walls only).

Tutorial 46 - Editing Framing Dimensions (7:34 min.)

Version 3.4.7 - 02.01.2024
- Updated the Columns tab of the Global Settings with new parameters.
- Added glazing color and opacity parameters to the Sheathing tab of the Global Settings.

The Columns tab now includes Custom and Blank under Column Type.

Up until now the glass color and opacity has been hard coded in to the plugin, now the user can adjust these values if desired.
Version 1.4.1 - 01.31.2024
- Improved the serial number verification logic within the License tab of the Global Settings.
- Updated the javascript logic within the License tab of the Global Settings.
- Added standard PVC (Schedule 80) electrical conduit sizes into the custom wire library.
- Fixed a minor bug with the edit wire profile logic of the wire module.

It turns out the outer diameter and bend radius of schedule 80 conduit is the same as schedule 40, only the wall thickness is different.  I learn something new everyday.
Yes, please watch this tutorial video:

I would need more details when you talk about "additional structural framing parts".
I cannot stress enough that everyone should start by watching as many tutorial videos as possible:

The plugin is now very deep and very broad with all sort of capabilities and "too many" parameters/options.  Unless you watch the tutorials you will not fully understand the power of this plugin and what it can do. 

Some complain that there are too many parameters but without all of these options the plugin would not be flexible enough and sooner or later you would find yourself running into something that you wish you had an option for.

The fourth icon from the left is the open/close tool:

The Opening Tool and Copy Opening Tool are on the Medeek Wall Tools II toolbar, they are something different.

Version 3.4.6 - 01.30.2024
- Added a "Dimension to Centerline" option for framing dimensions in the General tab of the Global Settings.
- Enabled centerline dimensioning for openings, columns and SSW for rectangular walls.
- Added a "Style 5" (Pull Plate) to the built-in door hardware options.
- Added more options for grid style window grilles: 3X4, 4X5, 5X6.

All updates per customer requests.
Version 3.4.5b - 01.28.2024
- Fixed a bug with holdowns for in-wall columns.
- Fixed a bug with the bottom plate cutting algorithm for in-wall columns.
Version 3.4.5 - 01.28.2024
- Added two additional column types for in-wall columns: Custom, Blank.
- Three additional parameters added for custom in-wall columns.
- Added a custom label option and annotation section for in-wall columns.
- Updated the javascript logic within the License tab of the Global Settings.

Technically this update is a bit redundant because one can already configure custom in-wall columns within the global settings.  However, this new option gives one the ability to insert any sort of column into the wall (non-wood) as well as a blank opening where one could then insert their own manually modeled column or structural support.

The custom label option applies to all column types, so it can override the auto labeling algorithm of the module.

This update per customer request.
Version 3.4.4 - 01.24.2024
- Added a pressure treated option for in-wall columns.
- Created a more realistic material/texture for pressure treated timbers (for in-wall columns and posts).

Version 1.1.5 - 01.23.2024
- Fixed a bug with the Extend Tool for groups (and components) that share the same definition.

I haven't had the time to add any new information yet to the website.  I am also waiting on Michael Brightman to put out more videos showing how the two successfully integrate, I know that he has done some work on his end to make his tag system more compatible with my own.
