Mannual Truss Web

Recommended Posts

For this portico, how can I make 2 web components that start at the intersection of the kingpost and bottom chord and diagonally extend to the top chords at their mid-span? Thank you!

First project I did in Pro. Used standard roof truss.

You can use a Custom Backsplash. Draw it against a wall, then move. If you want the wood grain correct, use multiple backsplashes -- one for each member and a material rotated to the correct angle.

I was hoping to be able to actually build it our of lumber so it would register correctly in the materials list. I was steering away from a standard roof truss because I had other pieces that made it a little less "standard" but, maybe I'll give it a try. I tried making it with rafters but, the ends pointy and I can't find a way of specifying the angle.

Thanks!

Don't think there is a way -- not even in Chief.
