we are newbies, using revit for only 12 months. we do lots of residential here in brisbane. framing plans that we do - we do not insert structural members, we just use floors and roofs. we create copies of views, then control it with visibility/view range, until it looks right. then we simply use drafting lines to represent the joists/bearers/rafters. simple and it works for us. others may have other ideas.

Two-month noob here. LOL Use the "Beam System" in the "Sructural" tab, or for a truss system, use it in "Beams", then array it. For roof rafters, I use the "Beam System" after setting the work plane in an elevation. It wasn't easy since I'm mostly self-taught, but you may want to consider Autodesk's Subscription Support program; they've been very helpful in my learning process.

We've been using a third party engineering program (TJXpert) which will generate every piece and part of the framing system which can be imported then exploded into the Revit drawing. it has worked flawlessly and allows manipulation of individual parts i.e. joists can be shifted to avoid a toilet drain. generates take-offs, BOM, etc. There are others out there that are easier to get your hands on which may also work.

I am completing a set of residential CD's in Revit for the first time. As I add the structural, the sheets are getting big for .PDF format. (200MB range for each sheet) Any structural framing plans need to take advantage of Revit's ability to store data in a parametric way. Drafting lines onto views make the final sheets(some have 7 to 10 views) into large files in the .PDF format. Large files are slow to send over the set of (9) 24 x 36 sheets takes over 10 minutes.

Since these posts are rather old, I wonder if anyone has developed a Revit way to do the framing plans? Some money could change hands for that kind of info!
