All you need for creating hip/valley rafter – just do selection of two beam systems from the neighbour slopes (or select all). Rafter detects whether the element is a hip or a valley rafter.
Software automatically generates a collar beam system between two selected rafters in opposite roof slopes. Vertical distance from a ridge or a level to the collar beam system can be predefined and edited later. Collar beams can be created on each side of a rafter pair.
Ridge and girder beams can be modeled easily with control of notch in (BIRD’S-MOUTH) parameters of common, jack, hip and valley rafters. Vertical or horizontal distance to the girder beam can be redefined. Existing rafters can be cut either immediately or later with a special update function. An update helps to edit and change parameters of modeled rafter or beam systems.
Openings in roof rafter systems are detected and can be framed automatically.
The application includes several functions to insert sleepers and trimmers, create horizontal beam systems, generate floor beam systems automatically, detect and frame openings in floor slabs, cut wood beams in consideration with opening geometry.
By using the Create Batten Systems function it is possible to create additional sloped or horizontal framing on a top of rafters or floor beam systems. This function is very useful in different cases. more
