Location: 06 Wood & Plastic : 2D Wood

This object makes it easier to fill in stud walls in wall sections. It combines plates, headers, blocking, drywall, sheathing, and insulation, in any combination, for 2x4 or 2x6 walls.

At the top you can have a plate, double plate, or nothing. The bottom has these options plus a header, and an optional anchor bolt for the plate.

You can show batt insulation or not, and show mid-height blocking or not.

Outside the studs on either side you can have a fill for drywall, plywood, or neither. The perimeter line on both sides is optional. If you are placing the object in an existing wall, you usually don't need these lines.

This object is another aid to developing wall sections while keeping them model views. If there's anything it could do that isn't, let me know.



UPDATE 12-22-06: Added the ability to extend the side fill along the ceiling on either side, even at an angle.



The spot at the end stretches the length, and the spot in the middle adjusts the angle.
