Can I do this? Create a floor with a trapezoidal shape to see the loading on the beams?

I'm building a deck.  One beam will be a ledger board connected to the house.  The other beam will be 10 feet away from the house and supported by posts and will be longer than the ledger board.  The deck has a trapezoidal shape.  Is the intention of this tool that I would be able to mock-up that type of a structure to understand the loading on the outside beam?

  • I assume you're using the Floor Beam module. You can use Add Trapezoidal Load for the portion of the beam that is longer than the ledger board.
