Hi all, Is it possible to automatically calculate the weight of an object in Vectorworks, by its volume and density? Either by internal function or external script? Ideally it should be accessible as a parameter in the drawing title block, and be presented as title block data. Often, the total weight of a design is asked for, and it is a pain to do this calculation manually in e.g. excel for all the parts. BN
Hi, I understand that Hanging Position is an old tool, and it's preferable to work today with Insert Truss tool. But, one of the biggest information getting by Hanging Position tool is the total weight of the truss system (truss + lights + cable + what you want which is hanging to the truss). How can I get this data when using the Insert Truss tool? The goal of this request is to create a worksheet for the rigger, with (non exhaustive list): Name of the truss system Truss symbols which are present and their count Height of the truss system Total weight of the truss system Thanks for your help!
