Space Trusses


Space trusses are three-dimensional counterparts of planar trusses. They consist of straight members connected at their ends. These members can be made of steel, aluminum, or other materials. The joints in space trusses are typically ball-and-socket joints, allowing rotational freedom. This flexibility enables the truss to accommodate various load conditions.

ProtaStructure 2025 comes with a Space Truss Macro, which enables you to specify a region and insert a space truss parametrically. You can control parameters, such as cell size, number of rows and columns, curvature and more.

In the attached document, you will find all the details about how to insert a space truss, framing type, how to change profiles, how to apply loads on space trusses, and more.
