Medeek Truss

Most of my time is actually spent debugging or looking for ways to break the plugins (instabilities etc…)

I found one small minor issue this morning when I generated this roof (I will issue the fix later today or tomorrow):

The module is surprisingly robust even with more intensive roofs however the draw and edit time required for this geometry is noticeable on my ten year old PC. My youngest son keeps telling me to update to a newer machine with a better graphics card but I figure the older machine actually helps me keep my code lean and efficient.

First argument I’ve seen for an older machine that actually makes sense!

I figure if the plugins can run on my machine reasonably well (which is getting a bit dated) then they should work fine for 90% of the user base as well.

Version 3.0.3 - 10.02.2021

  • Added custom materials to the roof and wall cladding parameters of the Sheathing tab within the Global Settings.

Version 3.0.4 - 10.23.2021

  • Added error checking code into various HTML menus for roof and wall materials.

Version 3.0.5 - 11.03.2021

  • Added additional energy/raised heels for double fink truss (2 variants: wedge and slider).

Apparently when I added in the raised heel algorithms for this truss type a couple years ago I only added in the vert with strut option. It was brought to my attention a couple days ago that the other two options were missing. I apologize for the delay in making sure all three options were available for this truss type. We should be good to go now with the double fink truss.

Double rafters?
