Braceworks, Truss Cross???

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to learn more about Truss Crosses. How and why are they shown in a drawing? They seem random in some cases. See attached. I've circled all the truss crosses shown. The help files don't really help.2018-02-16_17-52-06.thumb.jpeg.1abf17fd624512cd9e23a15bec77e0fa.jpeg

Hi Scott,


Those truss crosses are showing connection points of other objects that are sitting either directly on top of the truss or directly underneath the truss.  Basically, like a cheeseborough or a rotolock connection that is showing a connection to the truss.  In the OIP you can choose to make this connection pliable (like a span set) or rigid.  You can use it for placing truss on top of other pieces of truss or cantilevering a lighting pipe using the Lighting Pipe Tool off of a truss.  It looks like there are many truss crosses that you did not intend to use as I do not see any reference objects connected to them.  I have found them on truss to truss and truss to pipe connections but nothing else.  Did they just appear on their own?

Truss crosses are a bit odd. and seem to appear on their own sometimes.

I have copied objects and (not the truss cross) and pasted into a new drawing only to have the truss cross appear and connected to nothing.

I delete the truss crosses, and sometimes they will reappear
