    Anyone using Database?

    I'm not sure you can reconcile notes as you suggest. Organizing a team is always a challenge. There need to be some rules about how and where notes are added to the database. On a recent project we saw duplication of notes and inconsistent use, so training is needed. One other issue I've seen is a Mac/PC thing with Dropbox. The Notes tool would 'lose' the link tot he database and s=need to have that link reset when a user switched platforms.

    I should think this would be easy enough with the LED tools. Best NOT to use Simple 3D.

    Crowd with LED wristbands

    Sounds like a challenge. With a spotlight lighting device, I use the Spotlight preferences to adjust the color of the lens in Spotlight preferences, bu class and use the color field. I would think I could manipulate another type of symbol in the same way. The figures would have to be converted to lighting devices.

    System Scaffold as Custom Truss in Braceworks?

    Sounds like an excellent idea. I know custom truss can be created by defining a section. Not sure about scaffolding.

    Deck Tool - Different height legs on same deck

    This option would be very useful, especially if the tool was 'aware' of the related surfaces.

    Tentage

    The braces are likely simple extrudes. More complex if you really need the hardware and not just the 'look.' The tent shapes are also really easily done as Sub-Division models.
