    Laying out Floor Joists

    Im making a framing plan (3D) this way it shows the joist on all sections.
    How do I trim the joist on an angle?
    and what should I use for Rim joist? (the one that goes all around on the outside)

    Im using TJI Floor Joist by the way.

    Could you elaborate with some pics?

      Sorry im can't upload the picture, its given me a security error.
      Im using the beam tool to place a joist (TJI 11 7/8") down.
      I need to cut the end of that joist at 45 degree angle.
      How would I do that?

        Reference planes.

        Go to a section and draw a reference plane. I'd name it too so you know why it's there later.
        Make sure the joist goes PAST the reference plane. Then use the cut tool. You can cut all of your joists on one side to the same reference plane.

        For the rim joist, I'd either use nominal lumber (say a 2x12 or however tall your TJI joist is), or create a family so it looks like the rim joists TJI uses.

          Thanks that worked nice.
          Now for the rim joist I tried that but the joints dont clean up the right way where its on an angle.
          For the rim joist I created a wall with the lumber material and went all around the foundation.
          what do you think of that?

            The floor isn't level? Sounds like something I'd build. :laugh:

            If using a wall works, I'd do it. You can also use look into using the fascia tool. It's not just for fascia's. Create a profile, go around the perimeter with model lines, and use the fascia tool.

              Make yourself a structural beam family and set its material properties type to concrete (trick) and it will all join nice and clean.

              If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

                There's always that. :laugh:

                I was trying to remember that trick, but couldn't quite figure out what it was. :thumbsup:
