Speaker: Betsy Werra
E.L.Werra Consulting


This SEU BIM Forum session will demonstrate various ways to create different types of parametric trusses using the Revit family templates and in-place families to make them work for your building design.


The webinar will show various Truss tools for attaching, editing profiles, cutback and resetting the truss, and exploding the truss to individual components.   This session will delve deep into the family editor for truss creation so it will be important for attendees to have some knowledge about families such as reference planes, reference lines, formulas, form creation, and the creation of parameters.


Learning Objectives:

Recognize the different types of Truss families.

Understand how to edit a truss by using Truss tools, family editor and modification options.

Identify how to create trusses using Truss templates and families, In-Place families, and framing elements.


Handout and registration emails for this session will be sent to SE University companies on Friday, May 22nd.
