Parametric Shed

Postby jmdzampieron » Wed Dec 09, 2020 9:13 pm

Hi all... this is my first real attempt at making a mostly parametric post and beam shed design.

I intend to build the thing sometime this winter (Northern Hemi here...) or spring.

Right now I'm try to cost out the materials.

Open to suggestions on how well it works for other folks. I'm sure there's some formulas that don't quite work perfectly when you change things.

Some stick framing tools in the BIM workbench would really help with the overall workflow.

Note that I've intentionally not "cut" the siding and flashing so that you can check/see the pre-cut purchase length and make sure it will fit.

See attached file.

For the curious, this started as a twitter exchange about how to generate a BOM (really a buy-list).

It is customary to attach a screenshot of your project, since it is a showcase subform. Also if you can copy paste your about info. Please add both of these to the OP.. thanks for sharing!

I've actually started building this. I thought folks might be interested in the photos of a BIM project that started in FreeCAD and is now a real thing.

It really needs a good knowledge of production in construction industry to do that !
