This roof framing software provides a easy to learn solution for architects, builders and carpenters, who need create a 3D framing plan showing roof framing members before constructing it in the field. You just need a 3D roof model to get started.
By selecting points you first define the gable and roof opening boundaries with a polyline. Then just specify nominal lumber size in inches and define rafter spacing. Upon selection of boundaries you get the framing drawn.
GABLE – Aligns UCS and defines Gable and Roof openings geometry. FRAMER – Constructs Gable Framing. (You must run GABLE first). HIP – Constructs Hip and Valley rafters. ND – Constructs End rafters. HORI – Constructs Horizontal Lumber such as ridges, fascias, purlins and plates.
1- Copy the 3D-FRAMER.fas to your AutoCAD directory.
