roof framing members

Recommended Posts

does anyone know how to do a vertical

roof framing member, e.g. a king post

in a truss?

none of the standard members will go

anywhere near vertical...

should i be using an extrusion instead?

I've created the member in 2d and used the Pillar command with good results. I guess extrusion is also a possibility...

it would have been nice to use a

framing tool type of element where

you can specify dimensions, pitch

+ end chamfers.....
