  1. Given the complexity of many modern screen setups and the fact that content is often produced for them on a total pixel area canvas, it would be great if you could choose the H/V start pixel for a screen image rather than a percentage. I frequently produce content for multi screen rigs in Illustrator and rather than having to chuck out an artboard for each screen, being able to pick a position within a larger image would be great, percentage is not accurate enough for multiple screens especially when they are close together or have accurate mullions. For instance, this is the content for a relatively simple LED screen comprised of 15 different 'sections'. It requires 15 artboards and therefor 15 different RW textures to get it working in VW. Imagine then that your client wants to change the background........ a single 8576x512 pixel RW texture given that i know the start pixel of each screen would be far easier and less time consuming Of course it could just be me that comes across this 🙂

    Thanks I've not seen the OnePatt yet, don't think there are any in the rental market around here

    Symbole request - Robe pickle patt

    I did it anyway as I'd been meaning to get round to it un-tested etc Set the lamp to RGB 255, 214, 170 for a nice tungsten effect Robe PicklePatt 2017.vwx

    Symbole request - Robe pickle patt

    I have a Pickle Patt which is just a symbol just now, I'll happily share if you want to convert it to a Fixtrure? Shown here with sunstrips

    Export web view - missing geometry

    No idea if it is related but here is a capture from sketchup showing the same model exported to FBX

    Export web view - missing geometry

    Hi Dave. File is attached Thanks Mike Start_Gantry.vwx
  7. When I export to web view I'm missing a whole stack of geometry. The amount missing varies with each export and is not affected by quality setting etc. The same problem is evident when exporting to FBX so the issue must be something to do with the translation from render engine into whatever export format is in use. Here's the web view (white model to keep the size down) Link and here is a capture of the model Image

    Truss Corner blocks with a vertical leg

    indeed. You just have to fight the auto-connect function.

    Truss Corner blocks with a vertical leg

    Thanks Rob, as i feared the solution is indeed to have a suite of rotated symbols ready! I'll stick to manually connecting the legs for now. I look forward to seeing if there is a fix in a later release, having just put the effort in to draw all these up as PIOs it would be nice to have full functionality.
  10. I'm in the process of drawing up several common configurations of (now discontinued) Prolyte 30D Triangular Box Corners. I've managed to create flat corners fine but found I cannot create verticals that join in the correct rotation. I'm aware that braceworks doesn't do vertical anything hence the post in this section of the forum. The problem arises because there is no value in a truss symbol for the horizontal rotation of truss (ie apex up/down). As a result when a vertical joint takes place there is no way for the symbol to know what the rotation of the corner block face is. Example below using an existing welded corner block symbol: Has anyone got a workaround for this or is it a limitation of the software. Short of creating a complete set of apex in/apex out/apex in-lineL/apex in-lineR symbols I'm stumped! VWX example attached Corner_Block_Problem.vwx

    Mi Mark. I can highly recommend Scan computers in Horwich. I am now on my third custom system from their '3XS' range. Great customer service and rock solid performance from their overclocking so far.

    VW2018 Truss tool - Prolyte Truss Circles

    Attached file contains Prolyte H30V circle sections in 1/2/3/4/5/6/7m radius They all have the correct cross section and Truss Record but do not have weights as this information is not available to me. I can't vouch for their accuracy! hope they are useful to some folks H30V_-_Circles.vwx

    VW2018 Truss tool - Prolyte Truss Circles

    So even after a lot of fiddling around I could not get it to work UNLESS I set up the PIO as 'Insertion point is centre point'. With this checked they line up almost perfectly. Original DWG attached X30D-CIRKEL.dwg

    VW2018 Truss tool - Prolyte Truss Circles

    Hi Rob. thanks for having a look. That's what I figured was the case but it wasn't obvious why, draw a square from point to point and the seem to be within a mm of the corners The 3D geometry in the symbols is a straight copy and paste from the Prolyte DWGs if that is any help. I can also send you the files tomorrow

    VW2018 Truss tool - Prolyte Truss Circles

    Thanks Rob I don't have weights for the units yet unfortunately and there is no VW cross section profile for Prolyte X30 truss so they won't be fully Braceworks compatible I am having trouble with a couple of them and wonder if anyone can help. In the attached file the sections do not quite join up properly and for the life of me I cannot work out why! The rest of them seem to be ok X30D_R200_Test.vwx
