Post brace


Recommended Posts

I use 2018.

I have 8"x8" posts in a rectangular configuration supporting a roof.

I want to add angled bracing to the posts at the beam line.  It is a common construction detail and seems it should be easy.

However, I have tried all types of beams and none can be rotated to a 45 degree angle.  There is an angle function but it only moves the beam in a horizontal direction and not vertical. 

Is it possible to do this?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.
