Aligning Straight Truss

Recommended Posts

Hey Online!


I was wondering why I was having issues with lining up a simple stick of truss to a generated floor when you change the hanging angle by 90 degrees?


The center point of the truss seems to be the starting point of the drawn truss. 


In one pic from the 2D planview you can see it clearly not placed on the floor. In the other in the 3D view you see it lined up.


Is there a way of having the rotating truss to take the centerpoint of the truss while vertical instead of the starting point?

There is an issue with the Truss object where the 2D and 3D do not align when rotated vertically. This will be fixed in an upcoming service pack.

Just to be clear this bug only seems to affect the truss objects produced by the old straight truss tool and not the newer insert truss tool which is manufacturer symbol based.
