Truss configurator - Advanced


According to eave height, truss span, roof slopes, rafter height and an approximate purlin spacing the script generates a truss on two columns using cross sections from the section bank, with node loads acting on it. The script is capable to generate more than 100 configuration for a specific span, eave height and purlin spacing. The variations can be combined according to the truss type (N, K, K+T, K+2T), post orientation (perpendicular or vertical), chord orientation (perpendicular or horizontal), and the usage of a bottom chord end beam.
