In this video, we look at how we can create a truss-like object using Revit LT.
LT stands for Limited Technology. It is a relatively easy matter to compare Revit and Revit LT if you go to the following website:

it helps to create a framework using levels, gridlines, and/or reference planes. Load in the structural sections that need to be used on the truss. now use beams (not columns) to create the truss. Group the truss and then array or copy the group into other locations. Then use the cut geometry tool to trim the beams back so the fascia can be correctly located on the roof edge.
It is clear that using Revit LT imposes a cost in terms of effort and time on the user. It is always a good idea to download a trial to test your workflow before making the decision to buy Revit LT instead of Revit.
