SOLIDBUILDER Framing FEATURES

True Framing Intelligence
Automatically frames your design. It applies the framing settings that you specify (once) to the model to generate an accurate scaled replica of the actual framing AND optimizes your materials thus saving you money.



Automatic sheathing
Allows you to apply sheathing to any framed structure. Simply select the sheathing size and assign a template….SolidBuilder will do the rest automatically.


Advanced Framing Editor
Allows you to frame exactly like you frame in the field. If there is any special circumstance that is going to require some custom framing, simply use the framing editor to reflect that exact framing in SolidBuilder. 


Production Drawings
SolidBuilder produces detailed production drawings for any framed object in your design. These production drawing SHOW you exactly what framing members are needed and where they go.


Cut List and Cut Profiles
SolidBuilder automatically calculates cut lists for your entire project to save your crew time and waste less material. Its intelligence also creates cut profiles for any irregular framing member. Cut profiles even show you exactly how irregular pieces need to be cut and assembled. Detailed miters, bevels, angles, seat cuts, birds’ mouth cuts, etc.


Increased Productivity of Inexperienced Crew Members
Stop wasting your time teaching your inexperienced employees how to frame. Let SolidBuilder teach them. With Production drawings and cut profiles, they can simply follow what the picture shows them. A picture is worth 1,000 words.  


Reduce Job Site Waste
SolidBuilder home design software optimizes all material used in your project, including framing members, and computes where you can reduce your material usage. This obviously saves you money. This feature alone will save you thousands of dollars by not ordering material you don’t need. You will have a smaller burn pile, less job site theft and a larger wallet.


Catch Framing Conflicts Before They Reach the Field
With truly intelligent 3D framing, you will easily see any framing conflicts during the design process. Reduce your time spent correcting framing problems in the field.
