Pole Barn carport , Truss issue

Recommended Posts

Chief Architect x7           I am trying to build a pole barn open carport and cannot get the trusses to go into it not rafter material not to be there underneath.  Trusses need to look like the attach sketch from prospective client.

 

 

Thanks if anyone can help.

You need to do several things to get the trusses to build auto.

1 set your ceiling height to 12'

2 give your trusses a top chord depth

3 reduce the webing from 25 1/2 inches

4 adjust the truss settings to give the look you want

Basically the framing is a mess

You can modify the truss envelope. Don't know if this is exactly what you're looking for:

Thanks for the help.  Rlackore does it need more trusses being 30ft than the four you showed  4?

If they are steel-plate connected light wood trusses, then yes. Of course, you will also need beams to carry the trusses. And lateral bracing, etc. All I was doing was giving you a solution of how to accomplish the truss profile - nothing more.

      Is it possible to create a bi level single open web floor truss?  I have a 6" step down shower in the middle of a truss span and cannot create a single truss to show the recess for the shower floor.  Don't know if the x12 can automatically create this or not or if it is possible to manually alter the floor truss.   
      I did create a room for the shower with a -6 floor elevation and tried to draw a truss but is creates a 0 floor elevation thru the shower.

      Hi there! I am working on a plan (which is attached) for a garage that is 24' wide by 36' long and can not be taller than 18' and trying to get a "bonus room" made out of the trusses vs. making a true 2nd floor. I would like the main floor to have 9' walls so I can have a garage door that is 8' tall vs the standard 7'. I've watched multiple videos on how to create the space above the garage but cant seem to get it just right. The roof pitch I want is either 5:12 or 8:12 NOT 12:12 I have found the 12:12 is too tall and gets the builder up wards of 20+ feet, which I can not build taller than 18' for a detached garage. Exterior walls are 2x6. I got to a point where I did do the 12:12 pitch and made the truss for there but added the 2nd story and having the roof ignore the 2nd floor then placing two walls from front to back to create attic spaces, but when I try a different pitch then it goes away and cant get a truss to work right. I need to show truss specs for this as well. The "bonus room" can be from 7-8' in height for head room and is mainly for storage and a light duty use like a hobby room of some sorts.
       
      Also when I build an foundation it shows the doors below the walls, why does it do that? The garage is going to be on a 4" thicken slab and the foundation footing is going to be 6"x12".
       
      Any tips/help would be appreciated. I am using CA X10.

      I'm trying to generate attic trusses over a garage and they are missing the bottom chords.  The two end trusses seem to display correctly, but all the field trusses are missing the bottom chord.  The field trusses were generated by copying the end trusses using the place copies at intervals while dragging tool.  The non-attic trusses over the second garage generated just fine, so I'm not sure what I did wrong here.

      Hi, I don't know about any where else, but in my area, pole barn roofs have the purlins on top of the rafter or truss when metal roof is used. I can't find anywhere how to draw them this way in CA. Should be drawn as one continuous member, not broken up at each rafter or truss like blocking is drawn.As long as CA has been around this should have been a common design option. Please help if there is an easy way of doing this I don't know about. Thanks

      I have a general question regarding roof trusses and attic walls.  
       
      If I choose to raise the roof plane then an attic wall is created.  Automatically this wall is a copy of the wall below it...so, typically it will have drywall on it...which is not needed in the attic.  So...I create a new "attic wall" type...without the drywall.  However, if I will be using roof trusses with an "energy heel"...what happens to this "attic wall"?  
       
      As you can see from the framing perspective view...the attic wall does not show....except at the gable ends.  (I have attic walls turned on).  Does the use of "roof trusses" override the attic wall?  I'm wondering if the materials for the attic wall are still being calculated.  Also...the attic wall does appear in the cross section view.  
       
      Needless to say...it's a bit confusing.
