I'm designing a 34 feet diameter octagonal shape studio, vaulted ceiling, 2x6 walls, raised floor, wood shingles, probably Hardy frames, located in California, with 6x10 exposed hip beams and 4x6 exposed RR @ 24"oc. Does anybody has some experience with the connector/detail where the 8 hip beams come together?

I attended Ben's seminar 6 years ago, and I could not agree more
with Steve's comment. Highly recommended, even if you are not planning on
taking the SE exam, it was great for self-enrichment.
I attended Ben's seminar
last year, and it truly was one of the best educational/practical events I can
We met, listened to, and interacted with people whom
most of as only know from the textbooks and handbooks they wrote on the most
important aspects of practical structural engineering (concrete, steel,
dynamics, seismic, wind, etc.). Among others, we had a chance to meet one
of the main OSHPD professionals not in a usual root-canal-like plancheck
situation. That gentleman shared with us the invaluable and vast "insider"
information on the inner works of OSHPD.
value of the seminar is incredible and unsurpassable in both the informational
and monetary (cannot beat the price) senses. On top of that, Ben managed to
create a home-like, comfortable atmosphere that greatly facilitated productive
discussion and efficient learning.
With many thanks to Ben for his hard
work, I highly recommend BYA Seminar to all structural engineering
