Specify floor truss as floor structure/material

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to choose "floor truss" as the "structure type" when setting the floor defaults?  I am assuming no because of the way that trusses seem to be handled by the software.

The software sets a void or space between floors (Edit - Default Settings - Framing - Sub Floor for floor 2 input box), all the truss tool then does is to fill that void that you create via defaults when you then manually draw-create floor trusses. The roof truss tool works in a similar way filling the space you create between the structural ceiling and the underside of roof planes. It is something you do and not what the software does per se. You set the stage via settings and then manually create floor or roof trusses using the truss tools.
