how to vector a log truss member

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build a log home using log trusses.  I've downloaded the bonus library for log truss components but I can't get the individual logs/poles to position and angle like I need them.  Same problem with CAD shapes.  I want to be able to move it like I can using a soffit but I need the round shape like a pole.  Any ideas out there?  I am using X8.

Here's the help article to go with that bonus library...

I would personally probably just build the roof, create a standard truss, create a CAD Detail From View of that truss, and then use that as a template along with primitive solids (mostly just the cylinder) to build the truss from scratch.

I agree with Michael. The actual log placement should be one of the last things to do.  I wouldn't act like you are building a model from lincoln logs.

If you open the Symbol Specification dbx for the log, you can rotate them any way and to any degree you want.
