What type of loads are generated by the program?
 

The loads generated by the program are uniform and applied along the length of the external chords.

If the purlins are generated with a large separation, and the chords are part of a truss, the load generation may not be adequate, as these are really point loads which can produce unforeseen local bending moments in the chords, and hence the sections designed in Metal 3D will be smaller than those really required.
