Hey guys,

 

just wondering how you would draw the post bracing seen in the picture?

Post Bracing

There are a couple ways you can do the bracing. You could create a 3D symbol of the brace, which is a whole different topic in itself. Or you could use beams. Beams allow you to set the Offset to be different for each end. You do this by editing the beam, select Slope, then edit the ends individually to create a slope.

Which method you use would depend on how often you expect to be using the post bracing you are showing. If you are just using it one time for a single house then using beams might be easier. If you anticipate using the beams on numerous projects then creating a 3D symbol might be the way to go.
