    Marionette node with Braceworks symbol

    Hello Justin. I use the hinge that way but I liked the wrapper couse it made the angle adjustment easy. I hope there is a solution with a Braceworks symbol.

    Marionette node with Braceworks symbol

    Hello all. BenV posted a cool node last year. He made a swivel CB. Now I took his idea to use it with a truss bookcorner I've had a job last week where I needed it with braceworks. The only problem is that the symbol is on in an angle but with the node I can adjust it I only don't get it working with a braceworks truss symbol. Does anyone knows if that's possible and how? Greetings Martijn Bookcorner example.vwx

    Single house rigging points

    Hello Scott Good question but... The eye-bolts are connected to a structural member "beam" I've been drawing a lot of structural members to speed up my bridle drawings. But it turns out that my drawings are becoming really slow. And it takes a lot of time for VW to process all the data. And the member is divided in to parts which means the bridle tool will snap diagonal instead of horizontal. Greetings Martijn

    Imperial Bridle Lengths

    Guys why don’t you make your own symbols? Just edit the stockbridle file I’ve posted mine a while ago and updated it for my personal use a lot after that (beamclamps, basketsteels,all length i use....) take a look and edit the stock file

    BridleTool a mess

    @ Moritz and all other users. Again. A bad Tool. So what if I want to create a 3 leg bridle and all the hanging points are at a different height? Like in a spaceframe with an extra level? "Image 1". Leg 1 at 11m, Leg 2 at 15m, Leg 3 at 19m. This happens a lot weight wise. Now in the tool I have to give a trim height that's for all the legs. This is the wrong way around. Snap to a House Rigging Point or Structural Member. Set this as trim height. Some more things I think are strange. 1: Bridle leg angle. How can you choose the max angle? What's the max angle? 120 degrees? Why if I want to make it 130 with a load of 500Kg I get an equal load of 590.31Kg in both legs. If I use 1t steel then what?? 2: Bridle leg length. How can you choose the leg length before you've created the Bridle? Metric you can choose steels with a 25cm interval. Leg 1 should always be the shortest. And "you prefer this one without a S.T.A.C or Chainclutch". What does not work in the Bridle Configuration. The creator of the tool is thinking the wrong way. Is not a Rigger and got the advice from the wrong people. There are some good examples of how it should work. 1: http://www.vectorbridle.com/ a vectorworks plugin 2: http://bridlecalculator.com/ a AutoCAD and Bricscad plug-in

    Structural member

    Can someone draw a round tube as a 2019 structural member for me. I need a 300mm roundtube thickness doesn’t matter with a length of 5305mm. I wanna use it in braceworks but i can’t draw it in spotlight. I think you need Designer for that Greetings Martijn

    BridleTool a mess

    Hello Sebastiaan. I've started so redo all the steel length and chains. I'll add my file. I'm still working on it now I only got metric length. And I also discovered that you can only snap to a hoist hook with a 3 lag bridle. And leg one should always be the shortest without a chain or S.T.E.C. Greetings Martijn. Stock Bridle.vwx

    BridleTool a mess

    Hello Users. I've been trying the Bridle Tool. But I think is a mess. They tried to make something but didn't understand how. 1st The bridle doesn't snap to a hoist that's inserted with the Hoist Tool. You can change the downleg for a hoist. But what rigger start with designing bridles before you got a hoist. 2nd Why do is there always a downleg "what's called a drop or stinger in the business". A downleg should be used if the hoist does not have enough chain length or you need a steel for a deadhang. 3th why is there a 4 leg bridle choice. A 4 leg bride won't work cause there's always a leg who does nothing cause steelwirerope is never exactly on the mm. 4th They should change the trim height to apex height. If the tool snaps to a house rigging point or structural member you don't need a trim height you need a apex height. What I'm missing is the text from the bridle configuration in the drawing instead of the assembly diagram. How is the rest thinking about this? Greetings Martijn.

    Create Report List All gone in 2018

    Hello Users. The Create Report List All Symbols function is gone in VW2018. Is there a way to do this in 2018? I use it a lot to check DWG imports or other VWX drawing i get from 3rd party suppliers. Anyone? Greetings Martijn.
