jorgearaya Posted May 30, 2018 Share Posted May 30, 2018 What is the advantage of trying to design roof trusses in Chief? Typically roof trusses are designed by specific software packages that take into consideration the necessary load values for your area. The webbing chords are designed to resist the loads presented at each individual location Girder trusses to hold long spans Drag loads at certain locations Coordinating with your structural engineer to develop a good system and diaphragm Then that design also serves the manufacturing of such members. Unless you are a registered design professional that can sign responsibility over a truss design, and have the time to do so, and be economically feasible, I would take it on, otherwise I see no reason for production work. I don't know of any manufacturer that would take on any one's truss design and actually build trusses, even if you're an engineer! Thank you.
