  1. Click Place X Bracing on the vertical toolbar.

  2. In the Bracing Type box, select Chevron.

  3. In the Type category box, select the chevron bracing member type category to place.

    You can set the beta angle relative to your rotated coordinate system by activating PinPoint and selecting the rotated coordinated system as the active coordinate system in the Coordinate System box.

  6. Select the first member to support the chevron bracing. This member is the first "side" member to which the bracing connects.

  7. Select the second member to support the chevron bracing. This member is the second "side" member to which the bracing connects.

  8. Select a member to support the chevron bracing. The mid-point of this member is used to define the location of the chevron bracing point.

  9. Optionally, select a second member. This member defines the end location for the wide part of the chevron bracing. If you do not select this optional member, the software uses the end location of the first and second members that you selected for the ending location of the chevron braces.
