How to create a Decorative Gable Truss

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a decorative gable truss with curved beams. I gave up on using soffits and ceiling beams. Does Home Designer Pro 2016 have the tools to do that?

Within Home Designer Pro there are three possible ways:

 

1. create the truss in Sketch Up and them import as a symbol into HD Pro (the main trouble with that is that the current version of Sketch Up is NOT compatible with Pro 2016)

2. Create the truss out of a material region or custom backsplash tools (this can be done but is VERY difficult to pull off

3. Upgrade to Chief Architect Interiors or Premier where this can easily be done once learned.

There is a truss bonus library, but may not be available for 2016.
