Free-standing Wall

Free-standing Wall

Free-standing Wall

Good morning!

Error 1 - Wall #5 has free -standing end on Layout Type 1ST.
Detected at coordinates (ft) (33.8125,17.8125)
This will cause an error because it occurs under decking.
User Actin: Make one or more beams or walls frame into the wall end.

This is my first time using the software.
I went thru the tutorial offered online and had no issues.
This 3-Story home I am working on is very simple.

Can anyone help me a bit?

RE: Free-standing Wall

In RAM structural systems you have to have a beam or wall framing into the end of a wall. You can add a false beam, running in the same direction as the deck, from the end of the wall to get it to run.
