A module is a predefined detail set within the Wall Details or a door or window component.
These are visible in the hsbMODEL as a different colour from the standard timbers.
This colour can be set in the hsbGeneral\Colours as shown below.

Change color to define the module color in the hsbcad Model.

Points to Note

(Back to Top)

When creating modules use the following guidelines. 

Try not to have a space of less than 30mm between modules. – This is critically important when using automated manufacturing wall lines.
Ensure that when 2 modules are beside each other, that these are removed as a module and recreated again using the create module command as a single module.
When manually creating a module component (i.e multi stud configuration) that this is created as a module even if the timber colours are set to represent a module.
