    Functioning Swivel Cheeseborough

    There is also a generic library of cheeseboroughs in the Objects-Ent-Event folder in the Resource Manager. Although not adjustable there are 3d symbols in 15 degree increments as well as rigid versions that can be used for populating worksheets and reports.
  2. @Anttti I have taken a look at this truss and this is indeed a bug in the way the corner piece is drawn. I am going to file a bug and correct the issue and in the meantime I will fix the symbol and send you a file with the corrected symbol so that you may use the truss as intended. The corrected symbol is attached. Justin Cosmic F34T35.vwx

    Truss connects at wrong angle

    Hello again, Those truss bases were in an old library and were not setup for the auto connect and that is why you were having the issues. I have attached a file for you with the base setup using auto connect so that you may properly connect vertical truss like you wish, simply import the symbol into your drawing and use as you wish. In VW2020 the truss libraries have been updated and some new truss bases as well as Prolyte spacers were added so that if you choose to upgrade in the future there is a lot more that can be done with the Prolyte libraries as well as how vertical trusses are created.

    Truss connects at wrong angle

    What version of Vectorworks are you using? It does not look like 2020 as I still see vertical truss symbols. If possible, are you able to attach the file so that I may take a look. Triangle truss are the most difficult to get to setup and I would like to have a look so see if the symbol is setup correctly.

    Fixture Symbol RED Box

    If desired the red box can be turned off by turning off the Lighting>Input>2D or 3D class respectively.
  6. @LMorga I tried the truss straight out of the resource manager and I had no issues with the TC1212-AVB and TC1212-VHB as you also report. However, at this time the TC1212-AHB and TC1212-VVB are not supported. It was decided to leave the hinges that are not supported at this time in the program but change them to regular 2D/3D symbols in case there was a user that needed them. The only way to make them hinge is to manually adjust the 3D geometry in the Edit 3D Components window of the symbol. They will not support auto connect or calculations but at least they can be used. The other workaround is to take the TC1212-AVB and TC1212-VHB and click the 3D only radio button in the OIP. This will allow the hinge to be rotated in 3D views but it will still function as a hinge. If you have any further questions please DM me and I will see if I am able to assist.

    Insert Truss tool - Vertical truss?

    @SuniAre you using version 2020 or are still using version 2019 like your signature? I just want to make sure that I use the correct version when I list your workflow.

    2020 invalid truss symbol

    @fuberatorI just tried creating a rig in 2019 with Eurotruss and then opening that same file in 2020 and I had no issues. Is it possible to post or DM me the file in 2019 and I can take a look for you? I am curious as to why that is happening and would like to investigate.

    Altman Pegasus Symbol

    If you are a faculty member it sounds like you may be using the educational version which unfortunately does not include the Service Select subscription. I took a look at the Altman Pegasus and it looks very similar to a standard 6" fresnel just with an LED engine. What you can do is duplicate the USITT 6" fresnel or the Altman 6" fresnel and change the Light Info record to the correct values from the online data sheet. The light will still render properly but the data for reports and worksheets will be correct. I hope this helps.

    Altman Pegasus Symbol

    If you are a member of Service Select you can use the Fixture Request form under Support and as long as the content team can find all of the necessary information we will make it and deliver it through the Service Select content libraries download page online.

    Lights are showing black and not white when on

    Are you able to post a stripped down version of the file so we can take a look and maybe determine the issue.

    Prolyle H30V Box Corners

    @Macluskie Feel free to DM me and I will walk you through what all of those settings mean. I am one of the developers that setup all of the truss that is included in the libraries and would be glad to give some assistance. I have also attached a screenshot of the L1, L2, and L3 settings of the original H30V box corner. If you add 75mm to the symbol for the spacers also be sure to shift the entire symbol to the right by 75mm in the 3D and 2D symbol components. The insertion point of any straight truss and corner must be left center so that the auto connect engine can use the measurements in the customize window to calculate the proper connection points. Once you are finished with your changes be sure to click the apply customization button to save your settings. If you have any questions please let me know.

    XSF Truss

    @wadecordts There are now eight new product lines from XSF released in the Service Select libraries including the 12x12 Protective Bolt Plate. Currently there is no cross section data but that is being worked on as we speak but at least the symbols with weights are present.
