TrussCAD for AutoCAD - How to Install
The setup process is very easy to do. In most instances all you will need to do is close AutoCAD, the run the setup file to install the TrussCAD software.
Once you open AutoCAD, the TrussCAD menu should appear near the top right hand of the AutoCAD window.
If it doesn't appear, you may need to follow some simple manual instructions listed below.

If you still have trouble after following this guide, send me an email and I will help you one on one.

I have made the steps as basic as possible so you hopefully don't get lost. The whole process shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Once it is setup, you only have to manually set it up again if you reinstall AutoCAD
