glued plywood trusses that comply with IRC or IBC

Asked August 12, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

There are lots of study plans out there. But, if i want to build trusses now that will pass inspection under the IBC or the IRC so they have to be more than just study guides. I understand that an engineer can be hired but this defeats the purpose. Live and dead loads are known, are there any actual plans out there that are current and not from the 1960's and detailed?
