    VW2020 & Lightwright Exchange

    I created a DMX Patch using the VW DMX Patch Menu item. It works great. I want to send this information to Lightwright 6 What fields do i link & not link to LW & VW to keep this information intact. I am overwriting info or its just being ignored, This user U Dimmer, User Address, Universe/Address, Absolute Address, DMX Address is driving me nuts. Screen shots appreciated Thanks, Jeff

    Showing gobo texture in lit fog

    It may have something to do with soft shadows. Be sure that item is UN-Checked Jegg

    Braceworks Point Loads

    I need to get the Z height of a point load programmatically. It doesn't seem to respond to the normal calls. Any clues? TIA Jeff Miller

    adding weights to symbols

    I would like to add a calculate-able (is that a word) weight to a few existing symbols i have. They are not lights, but relate to rigging hardware. How does on go about adding a weight to a symbol and assuring the it indeed does attach to the truss structure when adding the symbol. I have tried to select the symbol and "Add point loads at Selection". this adds the weight but does not attach it to the truss structure. Any clues would be helpful Jeff Miller

    Braceworks, Truss Cross???

    Truss crosses are a bit odd. and seem to appear on their own sometimes. I have copied objects and (not the truss cross) and pasted into a new drawing only to have the truss cross appear and connected to nothing. I delete the truss crosses, and sometimes they will reappear Jeff Miler

    Hanging scenery

    I need to hang some scenery from a braceworks rig. I know it’s dimension and weight and pick up points. How does one convert this piece so braceworks will recognize it and calculate it into the load report. Do I just use a dead load tool or is it more complicated since it will be picked up by multiple points. i don’t have the ability to determine each point load but it’s a scenic Item weighing about 300 lbs over 4 points. It’s uniform in construction. Thanks, Jeff

    Corner Blocks & calculations connections

    The tomcat 2020 blocks are made for “L” “T” & “X” I had to make the pass thu block “<>” to complete the collection. And yes one must put truss at all available sides of the corner block being used. Thanks for the responses. Maybe VW can add this topic to their help files. Jeff

    Corner Blocks & calculations connections

    Yes I see that now. Thank you for responding so quickly. Just another Braceworks newbie stumbling along. 🙂 Jeff

    Corner Blocks & calculations connections

    So how does one make a square grid of truss or an "L" shaped truss? There has got to be some way to do this. Just because I have a corner block doesn't mean i need all 4 sides. I'm new to this braceworks stuff. Can i edit a TC2020 Corner block somehow to only want to see 1, 2, 3 or 4 sides that want connections. Thanks, Jeff
  13. Is there a trick to getting stock corner blocks to work. I am using the Tomcat TC2020 Truss library. Connecting a bunch of trusses works fine BUT As soon as I add a TC2020 corner block into the mix all I get are errors. No connections, etc, etc. I have a grid that is god awful big and uses a ton of corner blocks. Even in the simplest layout the Tomcat TC2020 corners do not work. It looks like they connect but i don't think they are. I need 20.5" x 20.5" truss and eventually 12" x 12" truss to work in grids. Any Clues? And of course I am on a deadline. Thanks Jeff Miller

    Ultra wide minitors

    Has anyone used an ultra wide monitor 21:9 with Vectorworks? are there any downfalls to using one? Any suggestions on a particular model to get? I’m thinking of pairing one with a new Mac Pro. im involved in the entertainments including construction and rendering Thanks, Jeff

    Mac pro

    Thinking about investing in a Mac Pro. Is it overkill for VW designer or will I see a difference over an I Mac 2014. I do a lot of rendering and complex lighting scenic drawings Jeff Miller
