Hi there,

Trusses are included only with the "Pre-defined Roof Shapes", so if you created a freehand roof, trusses are not included among the framing options.

Home Design Studio for MAC V19

In the users guide Chapter 17,Page 254 it directs you to a tool that gives you the Option to select Rafters or Trusses, but I can't find that tool

Hi there,

Did you read my answer to your first post?
Patricia G., "can't find Trusses option in framing tool" #1, 10 Apr 2018 9:55 pm

Just in case, here is the answer:
Trusses are included only with the "Pre-defined Roof Shapes", so if you created a freehand roof, trusses are not included among the framing options.

Pre-defined Roof Shapes are included in the roof menu. The first icon of the roof menu is the Gable roof. There are more options (check the first image attached)
If you draw a Pre-defined Gable Roof Shape (first one)=> right click the Pre-defined Gable Roof Shape => framing properties => you will find the trusses and rafters (see the second image attached)
Punch, as any program, has a learning curve. The best way to learn the program, IMO, is practice + practice + practice => Read and follow the manual (this is important), see the videos => try to create elements not related with your project, so you will become familiar with the commands and how to develop the different components.
If you are interested, I have several training e-books, including an eBook exclusive for Punch V19 for Mac.
