  1. @Endre Torkildsen I am going to send you a DM to discuss the parts you have created.
  2. There is now a library in the Premium VSS Content containing various kinds of grip equipment, C-stands, Rocky Mountain C-stands, and clamps located in the Objects>Ent Stage folder. This content is exclusive to subscribers of VSS and is included in both 2020 and 2021 versions. All of the components of the adjustable hangers and stands are setup as groups within the 3D component of the symbol so that the sections can adjusted for height within the symbol or the symbol can be converted into a group after insertion and adjusted. There are also 3D loci serving as snap points to help connect different elements together easier.
  3. Hello all, I just wanted to let you all know that beginning with the January 2021 Premium Libraries truss content I started to enter the info of US based truss manufacturers in imperial units. This was done so that it is easier to find the desired sizes by looking at the truss info record as you scroll through the Resource Manager if you are looking for US truss companies. Truss that is based or manufactured in metric regions such as Europe/Oceania/UK will remain with metric units in the Resource Manager. This is only going to be for new content moving forward, the existing libraries will not be updated to reflect this change. Justin

  5. We have this request on our radar so please stay tuned.
  6. I don't know how useful this will be but there is a folder in the wall styles for stage flats made with different variations of steel, wood, muslin, and lauan. These can be brought into your drawing and applied to the wall tool. Not sure if it lays out the framing members for construction drawings though.
  7. I believe that the new page filters by release with the newest content being at the top.
  8. The offset of the 3D portion of the slings has been corrected in SP2. You may have to delete your delete your RM cache and refresh the Resource Manager after downloading SP2 in order to see the corrected content.
  9. @JonnyC I took a look at your file and I noticed that the body of the instrument's tilt point was not in alignment with the 3D loci inside the 3D portion of the symbol. I corrected that and I also added the new parts record to this file. I also noticed that the snap bag did not have a device type so I changed that to Accessory as well as assigned the parts record to the container of this symbol and chose body. It looks like the light is behaving as you want with the attached snap bag. I have attached the updated file. s60 Tilt Updated.vwx
  10. @AmandaM22 Have you gone into the 2D component of the symbol and changed those line weights?
  11. @BNULB Even though you have the educational version you still should be able to use Auto Connect as that is a Spotlight/Designer feature. You won't be able to run calculations because that is what the Braceworks module adds to the software. I took a look at your file and that DEDO symbol is from the VW libraries but it looks like you modified the 2D which is perfectly fine. Your particular instance in your document seems to have inserted as a 2D/3D symbol and not a Truss Object. I used your symbol and inserted it using the 'Insert Truss' from the Rigging toolset and was able to connect Litec QX30SA truss to all six locations. Let me know if you have any further questions but you are on the right track and it should work for you.
  12. @BNULB Are you talking about the Auto Connect function? The 2D and 3D loci are remnants of the truss symbols before the Auto Connect feature was added to the software. It sounds like the QX30 is a Litec corner. Is is possible to share a screenshot or the file so that I can see what type of corner this is so I can provide the best help? Without knowing the configuration of this corner I don't know which technique for determining the snap locations to show.
  13. @Mark Aceto A trick that I found with the Pickup Symbol is to change the classing of the 2D geometry so that you can turn it off by class but leave the 3D visible with the OIP. Both the 2D and 3D are on the Rigging-Truss-Accessories class by default.
  14. @Cookie_NZ You can pre-add clamps to lighting devices. Just be sure to have the parts record attached to the clamp and set to 'Base' and also have the Light Info Record attached to the clamp and choose Accessory or Static Accessory for the Device Type.
  15. @MartinBlomberg Is it posible to send me the file so that I can take a look?
