Raised Heel on Truss Measurement

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Probably a dumb question...

Is there a setting to toggle such that I can input the raised heel height in terms of top of top plate to the top of top chord, like in the attached image?

 

Thanks!

Not that I know of. Really simple to take a cross section, measure and adjust.

You could read up on "Energy Heel Trusses" in the reference manual and see if that works for what you wish to achieve?

To create a truss that sits on the top plate with no raised heel, do I leave the default settings alone here?

I ask because if I make them both zero the truss appears to be floating...

 

Thanks!

The program will most of the time do the correct thing on its own.
