  1. Hi All, I've just discovered the VW has posted the Braceworks presentation I did at the Design Summit back in 2018. It's a follow along type thing so there are questions and answers being done live. The working files for the session are also posted. 90% of the stuff shown can be done without the Braceworks add-on. Braceworks from 2018 Summit You'll need to log in to see the course. Some items are a little out of date as I did the session using VW 2019 and there have been improvements in 2020. I'm looking forward to see what fixes await in 2021. Best, Scott
  2. Hi all, I've been having issues with the speaker tool and the array tool. With the speaker tool every now and again every speaker will disappear. I have confirmed multiple times that they are not in a hidden class or layer, and we're talking 70 speakers in multiple classes on multiple layers, so accidentally deleting all of them at once is highly unlikely. I've tried re-importing the symbol and doing a custom selection. For now when it happens I just open a previous file and copy and paste the speakers in. Still wastes a lot of time getting all the speakers back to their correct position, but this only happens with point sources. The array tool is special in its own way. I have my arrays on Braceworks hang positions, and when I change the trim height of the system, the bumpers will follow, but sometimes the speakers follow, sometimes they don't, sometimes they end up 20' higher than the bumper, and sometimes two arrays are fine, but then three others are completely out of whack, and I have to reconfigure or repopulate the arrays. Am I doing something wrong, or can I be sure these are bugs? Vectorworks 2020 SP3.1 (Build 537701) Designer/Renderworks Educational Windows 10 64bit
  3. I'm not sure the subject has been raised before. I painfully miss the possibility of assigning a different cross section to a truss. This was still possible in VW 2019. In 2020, the corresponding button no longer appears in the OIP. Does anyone know the reason why this useful feature has disappeared or am I missing something here? thank you very much for any input
  4. So we are using project share a lot, and have been for a little over a years. IN 2020 we are getting lots of problems with the interconnect objects. So we have been breaking out Rigging, Lighting, Audio, Scenic, Video, and Production into their separate layers so each dept can work on their own. The problem is the interconnection of the objects to truss, hoist, or lighting pipes. So we are experiencing, an issue of once an we attach these other object to the truss the rigging dept is locking up the drawing by checking out their layers. Vice versa is happening if the lighting dept checked out lights to ender data in the lights they prevented rigging from moving hoist because the truss was checked out by the lighting dept. This is preventing the seamless work environment that Project Share should bring. Now we might be using this wrong, I guess some direction might be needed. Using Dropbox to host the Project share file. thanks.
  5. Good Morning Everyone, I have several truss symbols, That I need to add into my truss library for Braceworks. I have all of the engineering information but was wondering if there was a HOW TO located somewhere that I could quickly reference.

  7. When placing motors (or hoists) in VW2020, the X and Y values will not update to a given origin on a drawing. As an example, if you have 2 different hoist origins and you toggle back and forth between them, the motors will not change their X/Y values.
  8. When a hoist is inserted into a document the "Measure From:" X & Y dimensions are locked into the units that were active when the hoist is placed in the drawing. If the units are changed for the document all of the other dimensions or settings in the Hoist OIP change as expected, but the X & Y in the "Measure From:" section stays unchanged. Refreshing the hoist does not solve the problem. I have played around with this enough to know that it is definitely a problem that needs VWs attention. I guess I will wait until the next service pack as this greatly affects my workflow. UPDATE: It seems that those dimensions aren't even updating when the hoist is moved from its insertion point. This seems to be a major issue within the hoist plug-in that may render the use of the Hoist Origin useless if you move or adjust anything.
  9. Hello Forum, Is it possible to attach hoist properly for the Braceworks plug in to vertical truss. Please see attached screen shot. Wayne
  10. Hi guys ! I have a simply question probably with a simply response : How can i get Number of Leg of bridle inside diagram ? Thank You
  11. Does Braceworks know about grapples? Is there a way to get BW to understand what they are and how they work?
  12. Is there an easy way to incline a truss with al his lights and connections to get different calculations in Braceworks to see de different load calculations?

  14. Hi All, Looking for some help and direction. I am trying to estimate the weight of a truss grid with decking. Its a 36' (L) x 12' (W) x 12' (H) grid out of Tyler 12" truss. I am stuck at the first layer with the truss connections. I keep getting a warning "Cross section types do not match". I read a few posts about corner blocks and I have tried to use the correct corner blocks for the drawing and not what I am using in actuality, ie 5-way verses 3-way. I have attached a screen shot of where i am at currently....
  15. Hi All, Is it possible to add a new cross section tab at >Prolyte Structures > "BGR70"? Today I added the BGR symbols to my our own workgroup library as a braceworks truss, but I don't want to use a Rigid custom field, but a new cross section that everybody can see in our template / workgroup at Prolyte Structures. Hope to hear.
  16. I added this to an old thread and I thought I might need to re-up it here. How do I add a menu tool from the OIP as an Object Context right click option? I would like to add Select System Objects for Braceworks Truss as a right click option.
  17. I'm trying to make some custom truss that technically is a 4-way corner block. There are connection points at each end of the truss and two offset toward one side. Here are some screen grabs of what I'm working on. When I try to make the connection on the offset side, I'm getting some really results. Thoughts? Offset Truss.vwx
  18. It would be cool if you could actually place hoists and braceworks connections on the same layer as your truss/position that you use for a rotated DLVP position. You currently cannot do this, you get the hybrid symbol error if you try to rotate it (this is solely caused by hoists and rigging connections, which is stupid because if you uncheck show screen plane/planer view it seems like it should be a non-issue since it's treated as 3D only anyway) In addition to this it would be rad if the hoists could auto adjust their chain and orientation to always be vertical, or show the toe-in/toe-out of the chain. In a similar way to how a lighting device can track it's focus point through the DLVP.
  19. Hallo Forum users. Does anyone know why i can't calculate this small cantalever? Weight wise should it not be a problem. Any idea's? Greetings Martijn. Braceworks error.vwx
  20. So I have lighting attached to a lighting pipe connected to truss. I have the truss connection diamond showing the pipe connection. When I select the system and run a calculation the pipe is not added to calc. Any ideas? It shows the connection highlighted but not the Pipe or the lights.
  21. Hi there! simply question : its possible to have a full library from Litec ? to works better with Braceworks web:https://www.litectruss.com/products/ Library: - Trusses - Conical trusses - Libera system - High load Trusses - Towers - Flytowers Thanks in advance.
  22. I wish you could reshape distributed loads with the reshape tool rather than trying to edit the path which won't allow you to see the underlying objects to snap your adjustments to.
  23. Is it possible to edit the Point Load or Distributed Load colors to match the default hoist colors? It is almost maddening to insert an audio hoist and have it default to yellow and have an audio point load default to red. I have tried to adjust via class and it won't change. Any ideas?
  24. I've noticed since installing SP3 that the truss weight defaults are wrong... Example shown = Tomcat 12x12 box truss @ 10'. Vectorworks inserts this as weighing 134.48 lbs and the manufactures website says this should weigh 61 lbs. I am having to change this constantly (customize etc.).... What gives?
  25. I am having many issues with braceworks but two are particularly problematic right now. 1. Braceworks is always loosing the "attachment" of objects to their hanging positions. I.E. I have a hanging position and go to do the calculation and is says it is not supported. so I go and reattach my motors. go calculate again and not three random instrument are not attached, go re attach them, re calculate and now other lights are now not attached, repeat cycle until i am bald. Very frustrating. 2. I select a hanging position (and its components) and run a calculation on selection. It comes back with a red box saying "selection not supported" that is in the middle of nowhere, not pointing to the truss that I have selected. It might be pointing to a truss that is on the ground, not being supported except for the floor it is laying on, in a layer turned off. But the issue is that I cannot get it finish the calculation on the truss that I have actually selected. Any ideas why it is bound and determined to add things to the calculation that are not selected. Also on the list of questions. how do I get Braceworks to ignore certain objects like pipe and drape that is floor supported? or truss used as scenic pieces on the deck. I would like to use this software more but it has been very difficult to commit to deadlines because I don't know when it will let me down. Thanks so much.
