This is the VBE™ for a complicated timber frame assembly that was designed to integrate with an existing steel moment frame. To add to the complexity, the structure was in Colorado and the frame was cut in both Montana and Ohio. After shipping across the country, everything clicked together like legos. This would have not been the case if we hadn’t discovered, while creating the VBE™, that the moment frame had been designed so that the entire great room truss system would have been uninstallable. Having caught this in the virtual build, we were able to redesign and fix the frame before the wood arrived on site and everything was smooth after that.
