Which tools to use for timber construction?

Struggling a bit to find the right tools for timber constructions. Some of my problems might be related to the US-english words, of course.

Here's what AECOSim provides.

  1. timber posts
  2. timber studs
  3. top / bottom plate
  4. timber studs at a spacing
  5. timber floor / roof joists at a spacing
  6. truss builder

And here's what needs to be modelled.

From what I see the columns would be timber posts, right?

But what about the beams on the side bearing the roof? Would that be top / bottom plates?
And the diagonals?
