Why spend 15 to 20 minutes creating a Bar Joist when you could do the same thing in 30 seconds by using the Joist2K program? Joist2K module includes the K, VS, LH and DLH Series and Joist Girders.

General Usage Instructions

Joist2K is designed to assist in the creation of contract documents by allowing the user to place bar joist/girders in the wall or building sections and details in seconds.

You can easily create a wall section with a partial bar joist to the right or left side using the elevation view.

Full-length bar joist/girders can be placed in building sections by simply selecting 2 points for the joist bearing.

An array of bar joist/girders can be easily added to a building section.



Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description


Displays the Joist2K dialog user interface. From within the dialog, users can select bar joist type, chord extensions, bearing distance, elevation or section view, end options left/right/both, and joist depth. After selecting OK, users can select the bearing point for 2D elevation view, then the joist is created and then the user selects the rotation angle for the joist. Placing a joist in a section allows the user to specify the number of joists and spacing in an array.
