Decorative porch beams


Recommended Posts

How do I get the three decorative beams as in the attached picture?  I tried adding framing-post and that works for the center vertical post but how do I get the two angled ones?

 

I need this to show up in the 3d view.  I know I can add a polyline solid for the 2d elevation views.

I don't know if this will help you but I have this knee brace in my library that I unblock in the plan and I can move them around and manipulate them for this type thing you are doing

I move them around in elevation views and resize them as needed

I model a lot of these and my preference is a truss.

That is actually a good idea for this type application. I never thought of a truss for that.

Thank You!
