TrusSource

TrusSource2TrusSource lets users automatically or manually define/solve the roof planes to suit the WallSource layout. This also allows trusses to be drawn on the layout and automatically formed to the shape of the planes. Users can also place trusses on the WallSource layout in sets or areas for fast and accurate input. TrusSource has a range of end types that automatically create and set out trusses to suit the roof shape.

TrusSource will automatically brace the roof and ceiling according to the design criteria. TrusSource  also automatically designs the truss boots and tie-down products and lets you takeoff this information using a user-defined takeoff system that can be set to takeoff all materials required by the user.
Users can create or modify all trusses in “Free Style” mode using either the roof layout or truss listings.

TrusSource also lets users generate and solve “Ceiling Trays” to create a range of shapes for the BC to create raised ceiling, scissor truss, cathedral, vaulted and bowstring ceiling profiles, etc.

Useful features:
  • User defined takeoff automatically calculates all extra BOM items to suit the user’s requirements.
  • Designs all trusses and rafters and automatically checks and adds loads to trusses if they are connected in the layout.
  • Use the mouse to draw webs as per users requirements.
  • Drag and drop service loads (e.g. solar hot water systems and air-conditioning units, etc.) , onto the layout for automatic truss loading.
