  1. Hi Unfortunately the functionality you seek does not exist (despite it being a very common rigging practice). Multiple users have pointed this out.
  2. Yes. Also they do not work for circular trusses. I have raised this with tech support and a bug is filed I believe
  3. There is now a bug filed for this. Expected fix in SP2
  4. Do you know where I can get VW 2020 SP0? Doesn't appear on the downloads page
  5. Strangely, you can only change the trim height with one truss object selected, it will move the rest of the system as well though as long as you have it all connected properly
  6. You need to change the trim height of the truss system not the hoist hook. The hoist hook will adjust to the new trim height but not the other way round
  7. I haven't rolled back yet but I can confirm that the problem does not manifest in VW2019 so I'm just going to take the whole project back to that
  8. I am also having this problem Interesting that it is an SP1 problem, I will roll back.
  9. When trying to connect the circular truss in the attached file to the top tri truss, i get a repeatable instant crash. I am using a hoist symbol as the connection. It does not matter if the truss circular truss is flat or at an angle. The connection I am attempting is this: Also on the rare occasions that it does not crash, the low hook of the hoist does not appear in the correct position, it sits directly below the circle as if it was not at an angle. The Z value of the hook is the same as the centre of the circle truss or possibly the Z value of the start of the truss section it is attaching to1: Looks like another annoying bug that us paying beta testers now expect to come across. VW 2020 SP1 Windows 10 truss connection crash.vwx
  10. if your pipe and drape is directly below a truss it is probably adding it to the truss as a load and therefore giving it thew same Z value. The same happens if you move lighting fixtures that are perhaps part of a floor package under a truss and all of a sudden they are flown! I believe if you hold 'ALT' whilst you drag it will not attach to the truss (not 100% on this, it works for rigging objects like hoists) A work around is to hide your truss layer when you move the p&d or perhaps use the clip cube
  11. You need to make the base and clamp into a group with the 'Parts' record format applied and 'Base' ticked. Have a search for videos explaining how to build custom lighting instruments, this explains the roles of the parts record
  12. Not sure it's everything Would be interesting to hear what people's experience on this is. You cannot rotate a video screen object for instance.
  13. Hopefully a fix soon. There is a similar manifestation of this problem I think in the below. I am trying to draw a 2 point bridle from two structural members to be in line with the truss. The bridle always draws at a slight angle: Maybe this is something I am doing wrong?
  14. It is pretty common tor bridle off a beam or house points parallel to a truss if say you need to distribute your load or avoid HVAC/lower steel work. This would seem to be a pretty big over-site. And if the house points tool doesn't do parallel two leg bridles and you cannot attach a single hoist to it in a striaght drop then what on earth is it for?
  15. Also take a look at this in V2020. I'm only just migrating from 2019 and this seems it may solve some of your problems:
