Roof Trusses Not Showing

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Brand new user here. I've gotten this far without asking for help, but really feel like I am mired here.

 

I'm attempting to build a structure comprised of steel columns and spandrel beams. I have created a ceiling plan, and a roof plane, and I'm trying to place trusses between the two. The trusses are showing up on my floor plan, but do not show on my 3d model.

 

Thanks in advance,

Alex

Display problems are very often simply the layer the missing object is on is not set to display in the view.

Just opened your plan and took at "Orthographic Framing Overview".

Seems like the trusses are displaying just fine?

Thanks Michael - I wasn't aware of that feature.

 

My initial concern was that they aren't displaying in "camera view".

 

Understood, Solver. Where do I adjust those settings?

 

Thank you,

Alex

There are many articles and videos on the Chief website, and Chief has a YouTube channel with more info.

 

Suggest you spend some time reading/watching to get you up to speed on the basics.

 

The Help system is also quite helpful, if you know what to look for. Searching for display, and a bit of reading will likely get you going.

Much appreciated, all.

 

I did heed the advice to research extensively prior to posting, but I'm trying to produce a drawing for a work project, and there is so much to learn...

 

The videos did answer my question, and have a bunch of other great info.

 

Cheers,

Alex
