Truss Webbing

Recommended Posts

Hello Chiefs, 

Is there a possibility to have all the truss webbing line up so it looks better on a cross section view?  I usually set the Back Clip to only include one truss (24") but there are occasions that I need to see "deeper" then 24".  I tried to "custom make" the truss in the CAD view option but to no avail, they keep coming on the screen differently.

Thanks in advance for your input!

You are asking only about the floor trusses?

 

You could place trusses on various layers, then turn them on or off to clean up the view.

I was mostly concerned about the floor trusses but with this advise I fixed both.  Thanks for that golden tip!!  Typical of me not to think outside the box :o.  With creating another layer set I was able to have the ends of all the trusses showing in the one section view but only the face of one truss in the other section view so that works great! 

Appreciate your help!

I use a back clipped cross section and only extend it across 1 truss and get a clean look.

I also have placed a polyline solid behind the truss in the shape of the truss.   All three work well, just another option.

Thanks for the advice!!  I usually back clip my cross sections also but lately I need to see a part of the section view "deeper".   Appreciate the help!!

I'm not sure that it will help in your case, but don't forget that you can break and step the cutting plain on a Back Clipped Cross Section camera to give you various back clipped depths.
