    What records to attach to imported speaker symbol?

    Thanks for your help Rob. For the time being I've decided to forego the visual aspect and just create the speakers in the array tool and save to the library there. Cheers! Steve

    Ok, I know what I'm doing wrong. I've been using the file browser and opening the files as projects, instead of using the Resource manager. I might be on the right track now.

    Another observation: I've inspected my Speakers Miscellaneous.vrx file, it contains a Marshall head with 2x 410 cabs. My Speaker Tool drop down menu has only "Marshall Model Four" - which I don't see in any file, selecting it and placing it is just a single cabinet. Very confusing.

    Can I put multiple objects into the Speakers Miscellaneous file and have discrete options in the Speaker Tool drop-down menu?

    I copied my object from the project I'm working on. Opened the Speakers JBL.vrx file which is blank. (And doesn't show up in my speaker choices with the Insert Speaker Tool.) Pasted the Object. Saved this file, closed it, moved back to my main project. Started the Insert Speaker Tool, and JBL is not in the list. Restarted Vectorworks. Same result. I also added a file with just the speaker in it to the "Audio Tools\Speakers" folder.... also same results Am I misunderstanding how you mean "add it to the file"? (FYI, I did this initially with the Default Speaker file, same result.) The only way I've been able to add a custom speaker is to create it in the speaker array panel, and Save To Library, but visually it has a generic form. I'm wanting to get very visually precise if possible. Can you give me step by step what you did with my file when you added it and got the result I'm looking for?

    Hi again, So I created another instance of the imported speaker, and attached the record. Here's the screen snip showing the highlighted box, and the end of the record data options. Noticeably absent is the option to draw dispersion.

    Thanks, I'll go through everything again, see if I missed something.

    When you attach the record, you're able to turn on and off Drawing Dispersion?

    I tried changing classes, but no affect. Thx though. If I create a speaker from the generic tool, I get all the data fields/options on the Shape tab in the OIP. But if I import a 3D .dwg speaker and attach the _ATS-SpkrModData record on the Data tab, I only get some of the options.
  13. Hi, I've imported a 3D symbol for a speaker I want use that isn't in the standard library. I've attached the _ATS-SpkrModData record, but this only gives me some of the parameters. While I can input dispersion angles, I can't turn on Draw Dispersion. I know I'm missing something, but I can't figure out what it is. Thanks Steve

    Thomas truss not drawn 3d in Open GL

    I searched for something posted previously about this before posting.... couldn't find anything. I can't get the included Thomas truss objects to draw in 3d in Open GL - it's just a 3D box. Draw 3D only box is checked in properties, and it does draw 3d in top/2d plan view, and in any render. Just not in Open GL. I tried restarting Vectorworks, same result. Obviously this isn't any sort of deal-breaker type problem, but it would be nice for quick presentations. Thanks.
