  1. Hi @Richard1 You need to use an object that actually uses symbol inside Vectorworks. A good example is the Truss Tool.
  2. Hi @samuel_ellis, I have checked your file and from what I see the Braceworks calculation reports are right. You see that the moment and shear force looks like aspected. What is happening that the 2 (heavy) audio loads on the outer truss segments pull the middle hoist up. I have attached a screenshot that show the lever which is acting there. I also attached some parts of our Braceworks training where we educate about the math behind Braceworks. I would invite you to such a session to give you some more insides what happens inside a Braceworks calculation. Just send me a PM to set up an meeting 🙂
  3. Hi @Samuel_Ellis, Braceworks uses the FEA Method to calculate the forces and deflection. From the Report you have shared I see that you use rigid cross sections. Can you share your Vectorworks file?
  4. Hi @Martijn Wingelaar, thanks for your post. Unfortunately this is a a limitation from Braceworks. Both the rigs are recognized as 3D structures, and Braceworks requires for 3D structures at least 3 supports that are not in line. This is the case for the left rig, but not for the right. The only way to get this system calculating in Vectorworks 2019, is to place a third support on this like you have done for the left rig. I have filed a Enhancement Request for this in Vectorworks.
  5. You can use the Click based mode for this. 1. Insert House Rigging Points at the desired location 2. Set the trim from the House Rigging Points 3. Insert a Bridle using Click based mode You can define this from the bridle preferences. This is the angle between the horizontal and the bridle leg. This is not the angle between the bridle legs. You can choose this, so the Bridle tools tries to create legs that match that length. The angle from the bridle will then be set, so that one bridle leg matches the desired length. This is the case. You can remove this from the Bridle parts with the Bridle Configuration.
  6. @Sebastiaan Sorry for the late response, I was in vacation, and I needed so time time to get rid of the Backlog. The Structural Member needs to be at the right elevation. Otherwise there is no connection possible. Also make sure they are enabled in the Bridle Preferences. If you still run into problems, can you please provide the a drawing?
  7. @SebastiaanYou also can modify the Bridle after insertion in the OIP for the Down Leg Length. Can you post a screenshot of what you try to use? I'm not quite sure. This should work. Make sure you insert the Structural Member at the right height. I will write this down. I think there is room for improvements there. Can you send a screen shot?
  8. Hi @Martijn Wingelaar, thanks for your Feedback. I have added some information about your question. I hope you find them useful. This is possible. Just makle sure that the hoist chain in not to long. If this is the case you get an error. You can set the down leg length in the Bridle Peferences to 0. There where several request for this. But I agree with you. You can define the Apex Height in the Bridle Preferences. What do you mean with this?
  9. @Projx_CACan you share the file with me? Then I can have a look on this issue.
  10. Hi, you need to change the setting in the Truss Cross. See the attached screen shot. Rigid Truss Cross have a square center element, pliable have circles.
  11. Hi Jim, from your posting I assume that you are using the german Vectorworks? In this case just update to SP2
