How to use TrussCAD, a autocad based program, to draw roof truss section detail

In this autocad tutorial, you will learn how to create the drawing of a roof truss section detail with the use of AutoCAD. You will also learn how section detail can be produced with lines, polylines, and hatches.

The tutorial is created with TrussCAD, an exclusive plugin program for AutoCAD.

It can be used to sketch timber roof and floor trusses in your AutoCAD drawings together with roof battens and roof tiles rapidly and save significant time.

The created lines can be entirely edited in AutoCAD if necessary. Trusses are formed on the basis of the user input and can be edited like standard AutoCAD lines and polylines. All colors of the line work can be modified to fit your office standards. With TrussCAD, it is possible to arrange roof battens on the Roof trusses for both Tiled and Sheet roofs.

The roof battens for tiled roofs also produce the roof tiles.

It supports full versions of AutoCAD 2000 and higher.

Functionality of annotative dimensions lines in AutoCAD

This is an exclusive autocad tutorial video that teaches you how to add annotative dimension lines in an autocad drawing.

The annotative dimension lines are ideal while going to print a drawing with viewports in various scales.

Fundamentally, the sizes to be edited in the dimension style manager, is same as that will be provided in the paper while printing.

With dimension style manager, it is possible to generate new styles, arrange the existing style, rectify styles, set overrides on the existing style, and compares styles.

A dimension style belongs to a named collection of dimension settings that manages the look of dimensions like arrowhead style, text location, and lateral tolerances.

The objective of dimension styles is to indicate the format of dimensions instantly, and to make sure that dimensions comply with industry or project standards.

The video focuses on the following topics :-

-Edit annotative dimensions
-Produce a special layer for dimension lines (command DIMLAYER)
-Draw annotative dimension lines -scale 1:100 -scale 1:30
-Display and hide annotation objects

To get more details, watch the following video.

The users will be able to modify this arrangement by inserting from a list of approximately half a dozen other controls to substitute in. There are various features like ISO plane, Object Snap Tracking, Grid On/Off, Dynamic UCS, Snap Mode, and Command Window for adjusting the Touch Bar while operating AutoCAD 2017.1 for Mac or the LT version on a MacBook Pro.

There are other significant UX/UI features like the new abilities to dock and undock the Layers palette and the Properties inspector. This will provide huge benefits to the users who are applying AutoCAD for Mac on two monitors and apply them in a way where the drawing window is arranged on one screen and the palettes on another.

Another significant feature is the improvement to the settings dialog. Now the Users will be able to pass their custom settings to future updates and no longer lose these upon doing so.

With great customization skills, the users get the ability to include or eliminate items from both standard pull down menus and the Tool Sets Palette.
