    Not sure about your definition of heel. but will this do. Insert as structural beam.

    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

        Ohhh...shucks now I am embarrassed !!
        Made these years ago and never really use them much and probably could be refined a lot more. I usually just place one for a section view for detail.
        Attached is truncated (cutoff top) truss where the horizontal top chord height has adjustment as well, you may find handy.

            Great truss Mark.

            Is there a way to adjust the heel (space between bottom chord and top chord), so I can increase the overhang yet still prevent the soffit from covering my windows. I usually try to maintain a 4" gap from top of window to soffit.

              I know this is dragging an old thread out... But I've searched everywhere and I cant find a way to do exactly what he described here. I would like to adjust my truss heel height as well, and I cant find a family that does that.

                Funny you should ask, I was playing with this the other night. I have created a half truss (mono truss) with adjustable Stub Height (heel height) as an experiment, have not put webs in it yet.
                this is a work in progress but you my want to reverse engineer it to see how to create your own.

                  Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, the file is in Revit 2013 format and I only have 2012. But, I will be upgrading soon and maybe I can look at it then.

                    So I finally have revit 2013! I tried reverse engineering the stub hieght into my existing trusses and I dont seem to be wrapping my head around the concept. Would it be possible if you could quickly engineer the stub height from your mono truss into the two trusses Ive attached? Its exactly what I need.

                    If not, where would I be able to find the info to learn how to use all the reference planes/lines etc etc. Its vital that I have heel height control in my trusses and I would love it if this would work somehow!

                    Even a quick tutorial of how exactly you did this, would be awesome!

                    Thanks a lot!
