Recommended Posts

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

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

Truss height above "FF" is controlled in the "Build Roof Dialog- raise off plate input box", this gives you full z-axis control of trusses but MUST be done before auto building or manually building roof planes (Trusses follow the void created between the underside of the roof rafters and the flat ceiling of rooms, it this is not set up correctly you get what you got).
