rafter Tail profiles on beams or pergola rafters.

Recommended Posts

I am designing a pergola.  So I am wondering if on the support beams and the rafters, which I made from general framing, can have a detail on the ends similar to a roof fafter tail.

Sorry only Roof Beams and Rafters or manually with polyline solids drawn in section view.

As said, you have to make your own joists and beams. Make one and copy/paste, it's not too bad.

You can add a molding line at end of joist or general framing member and apply rafter tail as molding. Like Joey said if you make one block it and you have it for library or for multiple copy.

You can actually make a Pergola out of a roof plane.  The only real issue is you can only profile one end of the rafters and beams so they need to be two pcs.

:o Yikes.  Two roof planes flat and joined?

Very Easy to do.  Do one side set it up properly then copy and paste about to mirror to the other side.

Did you know there is actually a pergola already done and saved as a symbol that looks almost identical to this in the library?  Very similar anyways if I remember right.
