Truss, 4 points (K, KT, K2T, N)

Description

This script creates a planar truss. The placement is defined by the 4 end points of the top and the bottom cords of the truss. The cords are linear between the defined end points. The available truss types are: K, K+T, K+2T and N. Other input parameters are: number of fields, material and sections, which can be set through input dialogues after the start of the script run.

Current version: 1.1 (release date: 2022.07.21.)
Improvements:
- Changed hollow section options from cold-formed to hot-rolled (e.g., CF-SHS 100x4 -> SHS 100x4). This way our current online section optimization scripts can be run on the created truss right away.
