peteroznewman, I believe needs to model this in solid instead of as line bodies/beams because these beams do not have continuous cross sections and have holes in them which are to be modeled as parametric for the location, right, Sam?

So given that you know how to create sketching planes in your model, you can either:

1. Sketch a profile in an appropriate plane which is created at the required location and then extrude (using Pull tool) these closed profiles to form the solid trusses

2. Sketch profile in any plane you like, extrude these profiles (Using pull tool) and then Move (Using Move tool) them to the required location to move these trusses to assemble them at the correct location.
