  1. Hi all, does anyone have a model of an 8' x 8' / 2400mm x 2400mm scaffolding tower? I thought I'd ask before building one.
  2. Firstly are you on Mac or PC?You may find a PC handles it better. Also as Pat says import into a blank file and then xref it in to the drawing as this will keep your main file smaller and tidier.
  3. Hi all, whats the workflow for adding an outrigged pipe from the top of the truss going out 90 degrees so the pipe and fixture are selected on select system objects and also calculates the weight in braceworks?
  4. Thanks Pat, I seem to have done it. Used the record format for numbers of seats and seat name and under function used Image which gives me a swatch of the fill colour I used on the seat boundary.
  5. Hi all, I'm trying to create a worksheet for some seating, each type of seating has its own class/colour and I'd like to show how many seats in each class. Any pointers?
  6. Great thanks Mark. I’ll give it a go.
  7. Hi all, I'm making up a data tag for video screen information and I'd like to add the trim height (bottom trim) but can't seem to find the right command to do it, alternatively just showing the Z axis would work just fine - does anyone know how to show this? Thanks Max
  8. Thanks, I also found if you right click you get an adjust boundary command which does what I need.
  9. Hi all, I'm drawing seating blocks over an imported 2d seating plan. if I draw a rectangle over say a block of 6 rows at 20 wide and adjust the space between to say 450mm I get a row missing. is there a way of dragging out the bounding box? I've tried editing the seats and copy and pasting a row in but its not worked. Thanks Mx
  10. Hi all, I've an issue with a schematic view. I have a series of vertical pipe and bases made from an extruded circle for the base and a lighting pipe converted to a hanging position. In ISO the fixtures are hung correctly however making a schematic view in Right View the mole strip is correctly rotated but the JDC strobe is not and in Front View the JDC strobe is correct but the mole is not. Anyone with an idea?
  11. Try using a worksheet, you can add whatever information you want to this. If you message me directly I’ll send you one of mine. max
  12. Hi mark, I really enjoyed your videos on multi part fixtures. One question, I see you have the cells as a drop down in your object info pallet. Mine are in edit fixture and I cant seem to get them to display elsewhere.

  13. Hi Russ, this does throw the auto numbering out. I've tried this in a console and it doesn't show up.
  14. Thanks, yes I did the same and couldn't find anything suitable so I've used the circle truss tool as a basis for a symbol.
  15. Hi, anyone out there with a 25m or even 30m Diameter Thomas circle truss? something around 520cm deep x 520cm high.
  16. I've just imported both a Robe 600 LED Wash in mode 5 and Robe Spider in mode 10 from the GDTF website, they are shown as 37 and 123 channels respectively which is what I'd expect. On importing into VW the DMX count in the object info pallet is shown as 38 and 124...anyone with any ideas of whats happened here?
  17. Thanks Tom, its only something I've only just noticed.
  18. Is there a way in vision to change the starting universe of artnet from 0 to 1? I usually ignore the 0 and patch artnet 1 to universe 1 and so on. I can change this on the desk patch though I have to change the dmx nodes as well.

    I'm trying to attach a vertical pipe to a truss system so it both moves up and down with the truss structure and the pipe and any fixtures attached to it appear in the braceworks calculations. There are a few posts I've seen regarding pipes and half couplers, are there any basic rules with dealing with these things?
  20. Hi, I'm posting this in Entertainmant as its not really a braceworks thing. The truss on the right is made from truss sections and given a height of 5m and hoist data for M7 & M8 show the bottom trim height of the truss (and the weight calculated in Braceworks. The truss on the left is the same truss but converted to a hanging position however M6 and M5 show a zero truss trim height even though if I select system objects the truss, lamps and hoists are selected. I'v managed to amend the data tag for M5 so it shows the load trim however this I'm guessing the hook position as its at 4174. I'm looking at setting up a second data tag for hoists on hanging positions so can anyone give me an idea of the syntax for the tag? Thanks Mx
  21. Any good recommendations for 3D human figures for use in VW? I have used both AXYZ Studio and Renderpeople and although cost money both are really good and Sketchup warehouse which is free. Any other options with a good polygon count/quality ratio? Mx
  22. Hi Klinzey, seems to have corrected its self by doing a new xml file and export. I've not come across this before and I've been using Lightwright and schematic views lots. Thanks anyway. mx
  23. Well I deleted the old xml file and re-exported and that seems to have cleared it up. Its an ongoing design so could have just had some old data in there.
  24. More of a Lightwright question rather than strictly Vectorworks. I have a series of vertical pipes with S4 pars on so have made a schematic viewport for each one. In Lightwright I'm seeing every lamp twice - both with the same info. I'm assuming its seeing the lamp in the drawing and the viewport version which in theory is the same one. Any thoughts out there?
