  1. Hi, sorry to hijack a thread, I've just signed up for a year subscription to C4D and rather than start a new thread thought I'd jump on the end of this one. @EAlexander I'm really interested in the Hantmade Stage plugin and I know you don't use it but do you know of anyone with first hand experience? Information seems a bit sparse and I have used the contact form on the website but haven't heard back. I'm not really looking to spend out on the pro version as I don't need things like the fx engine and timeline, but see that the 'normal' version doesn't do Vectorworks exchange which could be a sticking point. I wonder if there is a way to just manually replace the imported Vectrorworks fixtures with Stage ones which isn't too much of a faff? Thanks, Rob.
  2. @TomWhiteLight thanks for the tip, didn't know about the drag and drop. Every day is a school day!
  3. Thanks Kevin, I knew there would be a simple solution!
  4. Hi all, I'm adding some truss to a design using the file supplied by the exhibition stand designer. For some reason the text on the hoist symbols is coming out tiny (see attached picture). I have searched the net for answers and tried various things but for the life of me can't seem to change it! I'm sure it's something really simple, any ideas? This is in Spotlight 2020. Thanks, Rob.
  5. @JustinVH thanks for your reply and explanation. I will add what I need to the Contents request page, it's all eurotruss bus and con spacers. Thanks, Rob.
  6. Hi all, Not sure if this belongs here or in the Braceworks forum but thought it might get more eyes here.... Is it possible to request truss to be added to library as you can with fixtures? I use Eurotruss a lot and we have all sorts of spacers to make custom sizes for exhibition work. There is already a few of the standard spacers in the library, but for non standard I'm just using the straight truss tool which is ok but having actual symbols would be better. Thanks, Rob.
  7. So just as a follow up to this, I have been using the demo version of Savvy Symbol Section and It is an excellent plug in! It does exactly what I need and is really easy to get to grips with. I have attached a couple of pictures to show the progress so far. @JBenghiat I shall be purchasing the full license very soon. Thanks, Rob.
  8. Thanks for all of your replies. I think I'm going to give Savvy Symbol Section a try as hopefully this will be more straightforward than trying teach myself the 3D side of things within my timescale for this event. Joshua I'll be sending over a request for a demo code soon! Thanks, Rob.
  9. Hi First post here from a Vectorworks newcomer. I'm currently drawing up a design in 2D and need to draw some vertical truss towers with 1m scaff bars, on which will hang some various fixtures. I have drawn the truss and scaff in 2D but what I really need is some symbols that are 'front facing' rather than 'top down'. I have discovered the Savvy Symbol Section tool which looks like it will do the trick, does anyone have any experience with it? I toyed with the idea of trying to create it in 3D but think that might be a tad advanced for me at this stage. I have attached a picture from my Capture model so you can see what I am trying to re-create. The 3 bottom scaffs will have 2 Chauvet R1 washes on them, the top 2 Chauvet Q40's and vertically up each cord of the truss will be 4x Miltec Batten 2. I hope this makes sense, any input or suggestions very welcome! Thanks, Rob.
