Space truss


This script creates a space truss. The placement is defined by 4 corner points on the top surface. The truss geometry is a double-layer, square-on-offset-square space grid. The input parameters are the number of fields in both directions, and the vertical structural height of the truss. Optionally, load transfer surfaces, and surface loads can also be automatically created on the top surface. The script can also adjust the truss geometry in case the 4 points are not on the same plane.

Current version: 1.0 (release date: 2022.06.10.)
