Version 3.1.1 - 02.13.2022
- Enabled advanced options for mono scissor trusses.
- Enabled the "Edit Truss Assembly" function for all mono scissor trusses (imperial and metric units).



Also note that one can adjust the bottom chord pitch to be the same as the top chord pitch and with a raised heel (ie. 24") you can effectively create shed roof parallel chord trusses:

I like the idea of providing another option for truss blocking when the heel height exceeds 15+ inches.

Here are a couple examples of manufactured metal plated panels:





Notice how the diagonal web changes when the aspect ratio of the panel exceeds a certain value, this has to do with the difficulty in trying to cut too shallow of an angled cut.

Version 3.1.2 - 02.15.2022
- Enabled MPC wood blocking panels for common trusses.



If your heel height exceeds 15" and you have selected "Vertical" heel blocking as your orientation, then rather than solid blocks the plugin will now insert MPC blocking panels instead.

I still need to enable heel blocking and blocking panels for various other truss types and also make this available for rafter roofs as well.

Version 3.1.8 - 08.29.2022
- Added a parameter into the general tab of the global settings to allow for adjustment of the size of labels and annotations.
- Added a parameter into the general tab of the global settings to allow for adjustment of the font for text found within annotations and labels.
- Added a "resolution" parameter into the general tab of the global settings for adjusting the smoothness of annotation text.
- Added a "Label Rotation" parameter (0 or 180 degrees).
- Enabled various annotation options/parameters for truss roofs.





Basically just bringing some of the annotation formatting options over from the Wall Plugin.  I will still need to enable these options for rafter roofs, hip sets and complex roofs.  This update per user request.
