  1. If I send you the CAD files for the 20.5", from XSF could you send me some user library files I could use with the insert truss tool?
  2. What data do you need from them? They responded to my email and sent me over their CAD files for all their truss without delay. Many of the other truss in the library is set to Rigid for cross section data. Why can’t Vectorworks just add the truss into the library in the same fashion using the CAD files?
  3. The only 20.5" truss in the library that is bolt plate is the Tomcat line, which does not have true 20.5" cornerblocks. So it causes issues for scenic once you actually build the structure using plated truss corners.
  4. How is it that a year later and we still don't have the 20.5" XSF truss in the service select library? Also, how is it Vectorworks 2021 brought no improvements for to the software for truss builders?
  5. I keep trying to turn the symbol in the attached file into a truss symbol. It is a 20.5" XSF 6 way cornerblock. It seems like no matter what I do, I cannot get the autoconnect feature to work properly. Please help! I've tried emulating the geometry values from other 20.5" cornerblocks, but I am missing something. Cross section data should be set to ridgid. XSF 20.5%22 truss symbols.vwx
  6. I have a parasolid document I imported. I would like to replace the symbols in the document with XSF truss symbols in vectorworks. I've tried multiple ways of selecting a symbol>Modify>Convert>Replace Symbol but every time I do it loses all the truss records for the new symbol and just brings in the new symbol as a standard 3d symbol.
  7. I got a reply from my email to XSF. They said that they have been working on putting together models for Vectorworks for over a year, and that they sent over the models to Vectorworks about a month ago. They said they are just waiting on Vectorworks at this point. On another note, It seems like there is only 12" truss for XSF in the library. Why is the 20.5" truss not available?
  8. How do we get XSF Truss included in Vectorworks/Braceworks? Their Protective bolt plate truss is the strongest on the market and we use it almost exclusively.
