Trusses

Recommended Posts

I don't usually work with trusses so this is new to me.  Is there a way to change the conventional framing illustrated here to a truss with a cathedral ceiling?

Since Trusses, by Law must be designed by a State Licensed Structural Engineer in all 50 States, why bother? Software trusses are not legal (In Texas, I know for sure that the Architectural Board can fine you up to $5,000.00 for portraying them as "legal").

 

To answer your question, in Home Designer Pro they cannot be customized and are just preprogrammed to fill the space between the ceiling and the underside of roof planes. In Chief Premier they can be customised but at best are purely "Conceptual" or "Cosmetic".
