Does anyone know if there's a setting to get interior walls to cover floor system? Just noticed the interior view of a Chalet with loft floor that the rim board isn't covered. For materials I've found what you see is what you get so I suspect I'm not getting it in my drywall count either.

 

Anyone grappled with this and found a solution?

 

Thanks

In the image I have a beam below the floor system so it looks really thick. But to left it's just floor system.

How do I get it to be covered??

And in this image I applied drywall to the beam surface using the option available in the Beam DBX.

So I'm sure they have a way to get the rimboard covered .... just haven't located it ...

As long as the wall is up against the edge of a floor system, you'll have the option to " Cover Floor" when you edit the wall.( see attached).

Slick. I aligned to edge and the interior wall came up preset to cover floor.

 

Much faster than submitting a support ticket.

 

Now I just have to get the floor edge that has no wall atop ...

 

Thank you!

Any rim boards that are left exposed I cover with a 1/2" thick solid set as drywall. The height would always be the joist plus the floor sheathing. Sometimes I have several layers of solids to represent the drywall, skirt and nosing. I put them all on their own layer that can be turned off so they don't clutter up the plan sets.

Is there a floor system drawn beyond that with a hole cut?  If so, edit hole, add drywall

I don't think I have ever been able to get Softplan to add drywall to a hole yet. I gave up trying.

Sam, no hole cut. This drawing has the floor end where shown. Excellent thought process.

 

Martin, I think that'll be the route I take. Add solid to make up the materials not coming up in Softlist AND get a better interior visual.

 

Thanks to all for the sharing.

Martin,

 

‚ÄčI too have never ben able to get a hole to show drywall when it is enabled. Anyone out there know what the secret is?

You can add material definitions for solids and write formulas to account for the correct material

 

UPDATE!

 

After checking this little tidbit it appears that I lie like a cheap rug. There don't seem to be any Softplan variables for solids.

 

How about it Softplan? A possible update? We can assign a name but not a price.

 

That being said perhaps banding is the way to go.

Yup! Banding is the way to go. Pick a rectangular profile, set the thickness to 1/2", set "inset", set the height and the material. Now Softlist can count the drywall. I am making the change. Its easier and faster than solids anyway. I am going to try multiple layer of different material.

Create your drywall band from a solid, save it as a symbol and call it "Drywall Band" . Then create the cost formula. I have several symbols created by solids. Ex: Header wraps, wall caps, coffered beams, column bases, etc.
