    Several Truss Issues

    Hi Guys Using HD Pro 10 Having many issues with trusses. I have my framing complete I can't add trusses without roof planes (asks me if I want to create general framing member) Build roof planes: Get this (roof planes hidden). I assume the walls have to be extended thru the gable at this point Add first truss. All looks OK Copy trusses Seem to have truss and gable end wall Seem to have birdsmouth cut on truss Change end truss to dropped end. Lose overhang and it sinks into top plates I figure I MUST be doing something wrong. Plan attached. Can anyone tell me where I'm gong wrong? Thanks Mark 01. Garage v3 (22x24f).plan

    Import DXF

    Hi David It's a regular DXF file, but for some bizarre reason you can't upload dxf files to this forum, so I added the .txt extension so the forum software doesn't complain

    Import DXF

    Hi Guys Anyone had any luck importing DXF files? I want to purchase a site plan on line and import into HD Pro 10. But all I get is the database conversion dialog for hours (file attached, but with txt extension because I can't upload DXF) Regards mark 2000 Vista Rd v2004.dxf.txt

    Trace over plat of survey

    Hi Guys I have a plat of survey that is 1":20' scale. I need to produce a site plan and a version of the survey that has the location of my new detached garage. Is there a way to place the existing survey as a background image and "trace' over it with cad tools? If not what's the easiest way to recreate? I started by transferring coordinates point by point, but it's laborious process. i'm sure there's a better way regards mark
