    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.
