Stud framing and construction

Is there any such tool in Rhino?

The product shown in the video you posted (PlusDesignBuild) is a plug-in/add-on for SketchUp. Don’t know anything about it, but here’s their website:

Looks like subscription price is $2388 for first year, then $1088 a year (includes SketchUp subscription).

Sketchup along with carefully selected plug-ins is a great construction modelling tool; arguably equal to much more expensive software (knowing what you’re doing is more important than the software itself, regardless of what anyone says). Rhino is ‘similar’ to Sketchup in a lot of ways (normally I’d get in trouble for saying that but in this particular context I should avoid all of that heat): Both Rhino and Sketchup are great platforms for Plug-ins, Extensions, or whatever you want to call them. For reason’s I’m not so sure about, Sketchup has a much larger selection of plugins (maybe a larger user base?). Rhino perhaps has a greater amount of untapped potential.

Anyways, before I ramble on too long, I just want to say I’d be thrilled if this sort of thing was made available for Rhino. I’m doing something similar at the moment but for Concrete (basically modelling the building like it will actually be built as this is apparently next to impossible in Revit). Everything I need exists in the software already, I just need to perfect my workflow. I may however make some tools later down the road if I can get better at C#.
