Attic Trusses

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue where my trusses are not extending all the way to the girder truss.  At first I thought maybe the truss base was stopping it, but even without the truss base, I cant get my truss to extend.  It stops at the valley of the roof.  I am stumped.  any ideas on what could be causing this?  (there is not FDN as I deleted the FDN to make the file size small enough)

 Did you run the roof all the way through as if there is no valley coming into it or did you cut the roof to align in the valley?

 

Looks to be the issue here.Didn't open the plan but I would start there.

I have attached the plan with the roof plane adjusted and a pic of the resulting trusses.Ths area for the stairway will have to be ladder framed.

 

The trussbase plane still needs to be adjusted.

Thanks.  that will help me at least keep things rolling on this project.  I am still curious as to why it doesn't seem to function correctly, at least to me.  I originally thought maybe it had to be with the second story.

 You are welcome. The roof plane has to be there for it to generate the truss. If the roof plane is cut to the roof plane of the roof coming into it it will generate rafters for a stick built roof with a valley.
