Roof truss setout is about the process of correctly applying truss technology to roof shapes in the building design. The process is as follows:

  • Use roof lines on the drawings to convert roof shapes into separate truss areas known as 'blocks'.
  • Set the positions of key trusses in each block.
  • Set the positions of remaining trusses.
  • Determine where valley in-fills are required.
