  1. For the second year, global design software developer Vectorworks, Inc. will sponsor awards at the annual Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) in support of recognizing the diverse work of young entertainment designers. From January 9 to March 3, 2018, thousands of talented student artists, from eight regions across the United States, will have the opportunity to showcase their work. “In 2018, KCACTF is celebrating its 50th anniversary honoring excellence and offering student artists individual recognition through awards and scholarships,” said National KCACTF DTM Chair Rafael Jaen. “At its core, it provides opportunities for participants to develop cutting-edge skills and learn current best practices. We do this successfully by partnering with industry-leading sponsors, such as Vectorworks. The company's sponsorship will help the Design, Technology and Management (DTM) students expand their design approaches and achieve higher levels of professionalism.” The eight regional festivals KCACTF is hosting this year will be comprised of workshops, discussions, regional-level scholarships and award programs, giving students the opportunity to present their best productions and receive feedback from professionals. This program helps students develop their creative and technical skills and provides opportunities for participants to take important next steps in their careers. For each of the eight regional festivals, Vectorworks will donate a professional Vectorworks Spotlight 2018 software license to the winners of the Design, Technology and Management category. “The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival gives young theater students a chance to be recognized for their creativity,” said Frank Brault, product marketing manager for entertainment at Vectorworks. “We appreciate this opportunity to support the next generation of entertainment designers, year after year.” Brault will be attending the Region 1 KCACTF festival that takes place from January 30 to February 4 at Western Connecticut University. He will be located at a table at the vendor expo to support the students, as well as offer demos of Vectorworks Spotlight, Vision, and Braceworks. Since its commencement in 1969, the KCACTF has given more than 400,000 college theater students the chance to have their work evaluated and receive national recognition. Learn more about KCACTF’s network with more than 18,000 student participants and over 600 academic institutions, as well as each festival, at http://www.kcactf.org/regions/
  2. I'd like to propose that when you toggle the double purchase (sidebar, I've always heard this as called double reeved when referring to motors, and double-purchase for fly rail systems, maybe it's a US thing?) option in the hoist tool the diagramed changes happen. Basically: When the toggle is ON: The max allowable weight of the the selected hoist doubles from it it's default capacity The speed in feet per minute is halved (though this is't a big deal, but it might be useful) The total chain length get's doubled from it's default or current value. When the toggle is OFF: The max allowable weight returns to the defined max of the selected symbol. The speed in feet per minuted is doubled (once again, not a big deal) The total chain length get halved from it's current value. After inserting a bunch of 1/4T's that are double reeved (double purchased) for a ballroom show, I have to update them all the time to have their max allowable weight be 1000#'s. I've found every time I insert one it resets to the default max of 500#. Option + Dragging won't work half the time cause the motor won't attach to positions when I do it that way. The eye dropper tool also dosen't seem to want to grab the max weight as part of the plugin parameters. The tool WILL however remember the double purchase toggle, so It would be great if it could adjust the base values accordingly with it on. After all this is how motors generally work in the real world. It would make the tool more useable especially in conjunction with Braceworks. I am open to further thoughts/discussion. Just some observations of the tool use while diving face first into Braceworks.
  3. Anyone else noticed that the insert truss tool for BW seems to add .03 degrees of rotation? Also there needs to be a tool to attached a load manually to the truss system. I have lighting instruments that won't attach for love or money...
  4. When trying to snap a motor via the red insertion guides to a beam in a drawing (see the vertical light blue line in the photo) even when my cursor snaps to the light blue beam (as pictured) the red insertion square does not line up with the beam, it's offset slightly to the left. So the hoist always inserts slightly off the beam. Is this a bug?
  5. I am having an issue getting things like Speaker Arrays, or projectors/Screens to attach to truss to be included in the weight calculations ANyone have a solution?
  6. Global design software developer Vectorworks, Inc. is announcing Braceworks, a new 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) add-on for Vectorworks Spotlight, at the Prolight + Sound 2017 conference from April 4 to April 7 at Vectorworks’ German distributor ComputerWorks GmBH’s booth E60, Hall 3.0. Braceworks provides design, production and rigging professionals with an easy way to gauge the performance of temporary structures under load to ensure safety and compliance with engineering codes and standards. By adding Braceworks into Spotlight, designers for the first time have a completely integrated entertainment modeling, analysis and documentation process. Braceworks will be available as an add-on to Spotlight with the Vectorworks 2018 release this fall, at which time pricing will be made available. “With today’s workflows, it’s difficult for entertainment professionals to quickly and accurately assess the safety of their designs,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. "Giving them access to structural analysis within their 3D design environment is a massive improvement for their workflows. It not only will save them time and effort, but make it much easier to quickly evaluate how design changes will impact a structure’s performance.” Developed in collaboration with DeerSoft GmbH, Braceworks analyzes complete 3D structural systems modeled in Spotlight. It supports point and distributed load types, straight and curved members, and multiple materials. The FEA enables static analysis with results displaying graphically on the model for easy reference. Braceworks also includes support for Eurocodes and upcoming ESTA standards, such as the E1.6. Furthermore, detailed calculation reports are automatically generated, and files can be exported as DTSV to be easily shared with structural engineers. “Globally, the safety of temporary truss structures has come under scrutiny, so entertainment designers are constantly adjusting to new regulations and standards,” explained Moritz Staffel, managing director of DeerSoft GmbH. “Braceworks makes it easy for professionals to certify the safety of their structures.” Those attending Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany from April 4 to April 7 can learn more about Braceworks at ComputerWorks’ booth E60, Hall 3.0. Additionally, designers can find out more by tweeting @Vectorworks. Media members can secure an interview about Braceworks by emailing Vectorworks Communications Manager Lauren Meyer at lmeyer@vectorworks.net.
