Log Truss

Recommended Posts

I am  using Home Designer Pro 2019 on a PC and would like to model sloped logs for a log cabin. Note in actual picture the logs that make up the support truss above the front entrance. Is there a way to model these sloped members? I know that sloped members can be modeled as soffits, but these would be square. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Thanks David. These truss members have rectangular members. Do have versions that the members are round (logs)?

That is what I had in my library Browser, made by other Chief Premier users if you want logs you will need to make them yourself using Sketch Up. Sorry.

I found another library, I do not know if it will import into Pro or not but you are welcome to try it.

PS: I tried importing this into my HD Pro and it did not work. This Library is designed for Chief Premier only. Check at 3Dwarehouse.com to see if anything there is available for download, as Sketch Up Files are compatible with Home Designer software. Again, I am sorry but I did try.

Actually I took the library you provided, imported into an older version (9) of Chief Premier, selected the truss I needed, exported that truss to HD Pro and it worked. Thanks for all the help!
