Multiple Plane Truss

Recommended Posts

Having worked in the truss industry for years it was very common to truss multiple planes. For example, the main house has a 10/12 pitch but the porch tied to is has a 4/12 pitch. Is there a way to get Chief to do this? If so how?

Please post questions in General Q&A. Tips & Techniques is where you share your tips and techniques.

 

It's helpful to have images and many times a simple plan file that demonstrates the problem. So many ways of doing things in Chief.

 

Also good to know what software you are using. It helps others to have this info in your signature so it's always available. See this topic for a signature how to.

Yes -- should be automatic when drawing the truss. Are you having a problem with this? If so, please start a new thread in Q&A with more info.
