Rim Joist Options?

Postby Dhet87 » Fri Nov 02, 2018 12:07 pm

Does anyone know how to select a Rim Joist option when I have I-Joist flooring selected? PlusSpec only has an I-joist option for beams. I'm located in the United States so please consider US construction methods.

Good Day Dhet87,

Thanks for posting.

There is a tick-box option in the dialog called 'Include Perimeter Beams?' for the I-Joist option which will draw the same beams (type & size) around the perimeter of the shape drawn. However if you want a different beam type and/or size for these beams, then it's recommend to use the Beam Tool :beam-tool: in the current version.

Could you please try this and let me know how it goes?

Thanks and have a great day.

Yes, manually placing a beam works. Can you and your team work on creating "different" perimeters for flooring? OSB rim boards would be very helpful.
