NCARB Vignette - First attempt

Postby kajmera » Wed May 30, 2018 9:57 pm

Hi,

This is my first attempt at the SS vignette. I have a few questions:

- I am showing joists at 48" O.C. based on the program, which states metal roof deck can span up to 4'. Is this the correct logic?

- I didn't use any bearing walls and I noticed that many of the solution on this forum also don't use them. Is it advised to avoid using bearing wall?

- Do the beams need to be drawn column to column or can they be drawn continuously through multiple columns?

- I draw beams at CL of walls, but I drew joists and decks to the exterior edge of wall. Is that correct?

Also, is it advised to try the alts for this vignette? In the past, I've done alts for some tests and not for others, so just wondering if there's any recommendations for this particular one.

Any other comments will be very helpful! I am cutting it very close to the June 30th deadline - testing on Tuesday! Thank you in advance!

Yes.

Yes. There's no reason to use them.

I recommend column to column.

Draw everything to centerlines.

Can't hurt.
