    How do you add cladding onto concrete framing?

    Hey all. I am simply a university student doing a project and I need to design a building with concrete framing. The framing is simple enough but I can't figure out how to add cladding to the concrete frame, otherwise the building looks horrendous.

    Thanks!

    Create a wall with the composition of the cladding and align it to the face of the framing.

      Back in the day (when i had to do this) i actually kept a library of Structural Framing Content, where the geometry for the members was gone, and the geometry of the cladding was in the component. That way, i did a simple *Copy (from structura), Paste Aligned, switch component (to my CLADDING family, same type as theirs). That meant i could keep all the Type Cats intact, from the framing sizes.

      it worked alright. If i had to do it again for a lot of framing members i would do it the same way.
