Framing Trusses not working with ceiling heights


Recommended Posts

Hello! I am trying to build trusses to have a 7.5" overhang with a 4/12 pitch. I am struggling getting them to build correctly. The way I want them to look is picture #3. However, I have to lower my roof plane so much to get the truss to build the way that I want that my exterior wall lowers in height. When I get the roof plane at the correct height then the roof trusses build incorrectly (Picture #2) . Lastly, the framing at the intersections of the walls is showing slanted #1 . The height of my ceiling is 10 feet. Please help I can't understand why this isn't working. 


Thank you!

You can edit trusses two ways.  Do you know how to edit the truss envelope in section view?  How about editing them member by member in the truss detail?


I don't care about those little spits that happen to them, since I am not designing the trusses.  I am only interested in an accurate 2D planview layout and a CAD section view to show the truss guy the heels and overhangs.
