    Power distro symbols

    Lightwright can do the work you're looking for minus the graphical part, and it integrates with Vectorworks. It's a staple of my workflow as a production electrician and designer in theatre, concert touring, and corporate work. I use it to assign dimmers, circuits, and addresses, and it does all my load calculations. That's really scratching the surface of what it can do.
  2. These lines are appearing in my openGL renders at certain zoom distances from the drawing. I'll be zooming in and then all of a sudden they'll appear, then they'll go away. "well why don't you just zoom until the lines go away?" While that is a workaround, the lines appear while the camera is "sitting" in a seat in the back row of the theatre.

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    Thanks again, Mark!! The 'by class attribute' is what I was missing. I did not import the label legend from a previous file. It was brand new.

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    Thanks for looking at this, Mark! That didn't seem to do it though. The file is attached. 3d Label Legend Test.vwx

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    I just started experimenting with 3d label legends. These lines are jaunty, yet unexpected and not useful. I can't seem to get rid of them. Any ideas?

    Multi Symbol X Value is consistently off.

    @Sam Jones No, I did in fact need the X coordinate as that will tell me where the mult head lands.

    Multi Symbol X Value is consistently off.

    Hi Sam, Thanks for the inquiry. This particular exercise is to create a worksheet for a regional theatre where the circuits in the stage house originate from the stage left mid-rail. During my prep I specify where the breakouts will land on the pipe so that the multi cables can be loomed appropriately on the midrail and lowered in, connected, and tied up to the pipe with minimal to no effort or thought to the process. That's my general rule for installing shows: Leave as little room as possible for interpretation.

    Multi Symbol X Value is consistently off.

    Pat, Thanks for your reply. I did try all of those things, but now I understand the problem. The X value of the Mult head is relative to the start of the multi. In order to get my desired result these things are true: Multis originate from the right of the drawing Mult head symbols are centered on the Mult End Small Mult Head symbols are 20" wide If I make a function that adds 10" to the LeftBound value of the mult, it will tell me where the mult head should drop.
  9. I created a report for my multi that includes a field for the X value of the Multi Head symbol. That symbol is consistently 44' 9 1/2" off in the report from where it actually is in the drawing. Thankfully it's consistent so I can create an extra column that accounts for the offset, but can anyone speak to why that's the case? I've checked the symbol itself and it's set to (0,0). The drawing and user origin are both the same in the drawing. I've created a new document just to make sure it wasn't the file itself and it reoccurs just the same. Ideas?
