Valley connection demo
The Hip & Valley package consists of
programs for creating a layout showing the plan view, elevation of vertical
plane, elevation of hip or valley rafter and a larger scale detail of the purlin
connection. This package is for developing purlin connections where the purlin
is level and canted with the flange in the plane of the roof. There are seven
different hip and valley connections to choose from. Four that sit on top of
the rafter and three that frame into the web. All bevels, cuts and dimensions
are given with the connection completely detailed.
Below is a list of
some of the features in the Hip & Valley package.
Connections designed with
purlin level and canted with flange parallel to roof plane.

from dialog boxes.
Seven different types of
connections to choose from for both hip and valley purlins.
