Scissor roof help

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to add my roof to my design and I can't seem to figure it out.  I've attached my truss design, it's a scissor design with the vaulted interior 20' wide, it has an additional 8' on each side to account for the porch and a mud room on one side.  I've added my plans too in case that's easier.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks

Chris

Please take a minute and fill out your signature -- see below. Knowing what software you are using is often key to providing a suggestion.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

David...  Holy cow man!! That was the BEST answer I have ever gotten to ANY question I have ever posted about any topic here or elsewhere!!  Thank you!  Of course there's always a rub.. here's mine... I have Home Designer Suite 2016 not pro... am I going to get anywhere close to this in suite? Another question might be could I open the copy of the file you have edited if you saved it as a "suite" version? would I loose your work?

 

Again thank you!

I made the video before you updated your signature. Suite (any version) does not have the ability to draw trusses much less a scissor truss. If you want to draw and edit trusses you MUST upgrade to Home Designer Pro. With Suite you can piddle around but with Pro you can really start doing construction documents.

any chance Suite can at least show the correct style roof?

 

I think so, have you tried? If you are having problems, please start a new thread focusing on the roof.
