    Roof framing - trusses (no birdsmouth)

    I just noticed today that if you specify "trusses (no birdsmouth)" in the build roof dbx the rafter size is forced to be the size of the top chord in the roof truss defaults, regardless of what you set the rafter size to be in the roof framing defaults. Is this new to X3? I haven't seen this behaviour before.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pictures, then uploading the chief file is worth a thousand videos.

    The videos we watch are not 100% gold, but if we find a gold nugget, the time spent viewing has a value.

    We can please some of the people some of the time, but we can't please all the people all of the time..... but I will keep trying.

    If you are interested in keeping abreast of any new videos, please subscribe to my channel at YOUTUBE...... channel is ds hall
