Vertical trusses or towers

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm returning to Vectorworks 2008; only having used the software briefly for 2D when it was MiniCAD.

Could someone please tell me how to draw a vertical truss? I searched the forum before posting but did not find anything on this. I'm sure it is something simple.

Thank you in advance,

Mark Ellis

Also you could create a symbol of a vertical truss by editing, and deleting the 2D of it, enabling you the rotate freely.

Good day all

Just to correct myself here...

You do not delete the 2D of the truss....

In a 3D view you ungroup the truss to loose the 2D aspect of it, but by doing that you loose the truss info as it becomes an extrude.

I was busy creating a lattice truss, rotated 90deg. The 2D showed it was still laying flat on the floor.


Is there a way to create a truss with the truss tool and then have the 2D aspect of it removed, but still keep it as a truss creation??
