    Floor Joists VS. Floor Trusses

    I agree that web floor trusses should be available in the drop down menu just like any other kind of joist. It would also be great if you could upload the manufacturers specs (widths, spans etc) for their floor trusses/joist and the framing generated from those specs. I am not sure if you can input the spec manually but it would be a job I would like to avoid.
