Truss Manufacturer Software Compatibility

Recommended Posts

Are any of the truss/joist manufacturer's software available that would be compatible with Home Designer Pro 2019 so that I could hall in the floor plan and have the floor structure defined.  Of course I'd still need to specify certain constraints, but would like to be able to have it drawn out in the plan itself.   Right now I'm only interested in the floor structure.

There are span tables for dimensioned lumber and I joist. Open web trusses are designed by a truss builder.

 

None of the Home Designer/Chief Architect products interface directly with any structural/engineering software.
