Command -  


The Purlin bracket connects the purlin to a roof beam or rafter.

Selection order

First select the beam, then select the purlin on the side where the bracket is to be placed.

Eaves beam cleat

This command can also draw an eaves beam cleat if you first select a column (I or H shaped) and then a lipped C eaves beam.


When selecting the profiles to be connected, Parabuild will automatically filter the proposed connections.

The filtering will not only be based on the profile types, but also their orientation with respect to each other. For example, Parabuild will recognize if a beam is connecting to a column flange or web. This information is used by this command to filter out the incompatible connections in the connection selection dialog.

Therefore, the presented options may differ from those illustrated here.
