Sometimes you come across a situation where you want to replace two plates for one plate.
You can achieve this with the use of pattern plating.
While in iDesign click on the Engineer icon from the vertical toolbar.
Then Run Analysis and Plate the truss.
Select the Delete Plate icon and remove one of the plates.
Now use the plate monitor to change the remaining plate to the desired plate size.
Now use the Save Plates icon to save these plates for application on another truss.
Now re-engineer your truss and select the Pattern Plating icon to apply the plating you had saved previously.
The saved plating will then be applied to your truss.
