    DWG Export Files

    Heya Team, We are trying to export a DWG file from our drawing and we are getting a significantly undersized file as well at a great deal of .pat files along with it. This is relatively new, we were previously getting a single .dwg file and we have not changed settings. Can anyone help me?

    Tidy up imported 3d sketchup model

    Is there any way to change the pen colour on a mesh without editing it and losing the texture mapping? I have a drawing with a tan coloured mesh and a black texture, Id like it in black pen but if I double click the mesh I lose the custom map. anyone done this?

    Viewport Layer Stack Order

    @Jonathan Pickup it was totally that the viewport I was trying it on was a front view rather than top/plan, as soon as I tried it on top.plan, there is was. Thanks so much for your help!

    Viewport Layer Stack Order

    Thank you @Matt Panzer of course it is a simple answer and I clearly was having a blonde moment. I really appreciate it!

    Viewport Layer Stack Order

    Yup, that's what I thought. How could I even remove that?

    Projector Weight Field Calculation

    Ah, the source of the symbols is me. I took the data records from the existing projectors in projector models. I will have a look at a fresh install and re-import them. Thanks so much!

    Viewport Layer Stack Order

    Heya Team, Tell me if I'm having a blonde moment, shouldn't I be able to change stack order in a viewports layer settings by dragging up and down in a column to the right of the layer colours? Whered it go?

    Projector Weight Field Calculation

    Good Morning Mr. Dunning, I don't appear to have a weight field in my VS-ModData. Am I missing something?

    Projector Weight Field Calculation

    Howdy Team, I am looking at the video screen tool and have realised that the weight field is populated globally by the plug-in parameters, meaning that all projectors will display at the weight set in the plug-in manager fields ProjWeightLB and ProjWeightKG within the video screen tool. Is there a way to set the weight to vary based on the projector model selected? Secondly, when using multiple projectors (Stacked or side-by-side) the weight of the projector shown in the "include in calculations" field is not doubled, should that not be updating? Thank you so much for your time!

    Favorite Files Naming

    Hey Team, I have recently changed the location of my favourite files and I removed them and re-added them, they now all have the suffix (1) after each file name. I have removed and added them again, can anyone tell me why this might be?
  11. I'd be very surprised if this isn't already on the wishlist. Its been a problem for years and I'm sure I've posted about this in several areas. Thanks again @Mickey for adding this to the list.

    2019 Truss Symbols

    Howdy @kieranhotchkiss, Happy to help. When you drag in a piece of truss to a new drawing, it automatically adds 4 new classes. They are all, by default, viewable, but you can turn off the ones you're not using. Rigging - Truss - Insert Points (this is the loci, viewable in 2D and 3D) Rigging - Truss - Label (This is the text identifying the type and length, viewable only from the 2D portion of the symbol) Rigging - Truss - Simplified (This is a simple version of the truss to help reduce the strain on your system that complex truss can make. In 2D it is a rectangle the size of the truss, in 3D it is a long white extrude that takes the place of the truss) Rigging - Truss - Truss (This is the complex version, in 2D it show the ladders and chords of the truss in a bit more detail, in 3D it is the full 3D geometry of the truss piece) The way these are presumably utilized is that you will either have simplified turned on and truss turned off, or vice versa, depending on what you are doing. If you have a complex drawing and you have completed all necessary truss elements, then turning simplified on and truss off will help you navigate more quickly. Just like @scottmoore said, try dragging one piece into a blank drawing and toggling on and off the classes to see what they do. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any further questions.

    Raked Hanging Position Truss

    Heya @Bhel, Sure thing! 1. So create a layer all by itself and place your 6 sticks of 20ft truss the way you would like it. 2. Grab the truss and create a viewport, but rather than putting it on a sheet layer, select a design layer, or create a new one called angled truss or something. 3. Select that view port and hit the layers button, make sure the only visible layer is the first one you created. 4. Turn off the original truss layer you created. 5. select the viewport you have now on angled truss layer, go to a side view and rotate the truss the way you want it. If you want to edit the truss in any way you need to go back to the first layer, otherwise it can be turned off and you'll only deal with the viewport for the rest of the time. I hope this helps, let me know if you need any more help making this happen.

    Speaker Tools

    You are a legend good sir, I shall fire you over a file shortly.

    Speaker Tools

    That's Great, I have found the file in user folders and it moves across just fine now thank you. New problem. In trying to create new speaker boxes, L'acoustics - Kara specifically, when I fill in all of the parameters, horizontal dispersion at 110° and weight at 26kg I save the speaker type and overwrite the old file, exit and return to the speaker array tool it has changed the dispersion back to 90° and the weight back to 90kg every time. do I need to be in administrator mode or change the saving method in some way?
