Looking for ideas on how to build a custom truss

Recommended Posts

See attached...I'm trying to build a similar porch gable truss.  I've got the posts and beam built....but can't find a build object that will assume the desired shape of the angled web members.  Any ideas?

 

This structure will be exposed exactly as seen in the photo.

Have you tried using the truss tool? Not sure the steeply pitched members can be done. might need to do it in Sketchup.

 

This was my first project and I used the truss tools to do the trusses.
