  1. I believe that the new page filters by release with the newest content being at the top.
  2. 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.
  3. @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
  4. @AmandaM22 Have you gone into the 2D component of the symbol and changed those line weights?
  5. @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.
  6. @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.
  7. @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.
  8. @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.
  9. @MartinBlomberg Is it posible to send me the file so that I can take a look?
  10. @EskiVES If you are running Vectorworks 2019 the Layher scaffolding is in the Vectorworks Service Select Libraries for that release in the Objects>Ent Stage folder.
  11. @Mark Aceto Can you DM me the file so I can look?
  12. @Mark Aceto Here you go. In order to get things to line up correctly I performed the following steps: -Align the 3D geometry so that the center of the clamp is centered on the pipe. -If you want to show two clamps have two instances of the 3D geometry in clamp symbol. -Exit the symbol and attach the Parts record to the symbol. -Choose Base to be true for the symbol. -Use the accessory tool to insert the clamp. solaris clamp attached.vwx
  13. Unfortunately, I do not have a possible solution for you. Tech support may be your best bet.
  14. @michael john williams Are you using VW2021? In the Document Preferences there is a new feature called 'Save VGM Cache'. This is on by default and can cause the file size to increase. Turning that cache off should help to reduce the file size but will make file opening and navigating slower. I hope that helps.
  15. @wadecordts I downloaded your file and set the corner up for you using the proper truss record and the auto connect settings that should apply to corner blocks. Without having a piece of straight truss to connect to the corner it is hard to confirm is all the settings are correct but testing using the corner appears looks right. I left your original symbol but duplicated it and drew it again to setup with the naming that would be used if I released this myself in the shipped VSS libraries. Use the symbol I circled in the screenshot as that is the setup symbol. If you have any questions or issues please DM me and I will be glad to help. Justin Setup XSF 20.5%22 truss symbols.vwx
