RE: conical roof structure analysis on staa pro

Can't help you on the checking.
One of the requirements is that rafters be stable assuming no lateral support with dead weight of roof plate and rafter only acting. That will quite likely control the design of the rafters unless additional bracing is used.
There normally wouldn't be a limitation on deflection.
