You can have knee braces in both directions, so in that case you could 3-D the thing.

I don’t get the bit about the “space frame model.” It is more than likely that a knee-brace joint will occur in a 2D (plane) frame.

Bhavin,

 

Thanks for the tips.  Currently I have the building modeled in RAM Structural.  This should give similar results as a space frame model (using special software?), correct?
