In this webinar, we'll show the latest enhancements made to the Rafter framing module that is now part of our Wood & Metal Roof framing software. Now creating rafters automatically is much smoother and more intuitive, just as it has always been for walls, floors, and prefabricated roofs. The powerful Rafter tool seamlessly automates the roof splitting and framing process: split a roof by faces and then frame it with Roof + (Wood version, Metal version).

Join our webinar and see how to:

  • Automatically split roofs by faces according to any architectural roof shape;
  • Define detailed, multi-layer timber/steel rafters for roof framing in a snap using fully customizable rules and templates;
  • Automate shop drawings, including sorting, tagging, dimensioning and scheduling of all frames and their elements.
