Type 1 Roof Support Created in SolidWorks

This part will explain how to create the first type of roof support. There are three types of roof supports, however, not all of them need to be created depending on how big you want your log cabin to be. This type of roof support (type 1) has to be created for all log cabin assemblies. Then, you must create at least one other type of roof support.

The next blog support will show how you can create another type of roof support.
