I'm trying to make some custom truss that technically is a 4-way corner block. There are connection points at each end of the truss and two offset toward one side. Here are some screen grabs of what I'm working on.  When I try to make the connection on the offset side, I'm getting some really results. Thoughts?

is your insertion point in the center?  insertion point should be one of the two end connections.  then you can set up the corner from there.

it is kinda counter intuitive.  you need to set the center to where the other insertion points are, so rather than at 5'3, it is at 1" the attached works correctly.

not at this time.  that is one of the reasons that MOD truss does not work in the software the way it can be used in real life.
