    Offset Custom Truss

    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
  2. Spotlight Truss count tool... We have a Lighting Label Legend plugin to summarize Lighting Object names and qtys. Can we have a plugin to summarize Straight Truss and motor size, length, and qty?
  3. Ok, I can't figure out how to build truss towers with the insert truss tool. There is no hanging position option with the TomCat truss. Also cant find a truss base objest. Help?
  4. Is it possible to replace truss that has been converted to a hanging position? I built a lighting rig and then found out that the supplier changed the size of the truss from what was in the drawing. I'm trying to change the type of truss in the hanging position but can't seem to do it as a group operation. I can delete each individual piece of truss and replace it one-by-one but that will take me forever. I've edited the position, selected the truss, tried replacing the truss but I can't seem to find a way to do it. Ideas? Thanks.
  5. 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.
  6. Hey all, While importing VWX truss symbols from the subscription library, the symbol shows up as a solid in 3D (see attached). Does anyone know how to make them show up like a normal truss. Like when using the Spotlight Truss Tool Plugin?
  7. Is there a way to replace truss without having to do every piece by itself? Like you can with lighting fixtures... Select all of it and hit replace?

    Adding Libraries

    What is the process of adding additional manufacturers truss libraries to both Vectorworks and Braceworks?

    Spigot Truss Corners

    How do you get spigot truss corners to work correctly? They insert into the middle of the truss - parallel to it and you can't attach another truss 90 to it... What am I doing wrong?
  10. 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?

    Extrude Along Path issues

    I have mentioned this problem before on the forums and also had a dialogue with UK tech support within the last couple of years (they were nice but had no answers) but with the introduction of new truss objects I thought I would raise the issue again. The zig-zag lacing on bundled VWX truss objects is looks smooth. When I try and do something similar by extruding a circle along a poly line I get a really jagged mess of geometry which I cannot for the life of me eradicate. 1. Does anybody see this anomaly? 2. Do you have a workaround? 3. How do VWX make their truss lacing so smooth? (They are generic solids so I have no way of knowing how they are made) I have enclosed the file in case anybody wants to experiment. Many thanks Truss_Lacing.vwx
  12. Hi All, I'm going a little crazy and need someone to do this bug test for me, two parts; Part One Make a truss. Convert to lighting position. Using Instrument Insertion place a few lamps onto the truss. Raise Truss lighting position to 6000mm in Z. Ensure lights stay on truss from front view. Part Two Make a Truss. Convert to lighting position. Raise Truss lighting position to 6000mm in Z. Using Instrument Insertion place a few lamps onto the truss. Ensure lights are hung on truss (mine aren't!) *Optional extra - try to hang more lights on lighting positions, default insertion is 0mm. Just let me know if your experience is the same. Especially @JimWdo you get this? Hope you're all well. J

    This Example shows, hot to have a any (complex as you want) geometry with a parametric length (available by the yards). The Geometry was not modeled and parameterized in the script. But this is the advantage which this example shows. So take every geometry (import files etc) and just "cut" the length you need. Thats how this script works. It cuts away from a maximal part length (input as symbol) to the length you need. You can make an own symbol and rename the symbol input of the script. The Symbol cross-section now is limited to one meter. You can edit the script and increase this if necessary. Or look at this, with this method, you can model frame and installation plate in your script. The "fill" you can make with the method of this example script.

    3-Sided Truss

    Hello all, I am looking for a way to make a custom sized truss with 3 sides containing ladder bars and one side open. This is an example of what I mean: http://www.tomcatglobal.com/Products/Dance-Tower/ Any suggestions on how to do this? Thank you!
  15. Greetings, I'm creating a few versions of the Tomcat TC1212-AHB symbol at different angles. I duplicated the symbol and edited to make a 45° version. There is a simplified shape that I cannot seem to select. In Edit 3D mode, the outline of the box is in blue. The second screen shot is what I have at the moment. How do I select the blue line shape to edit? Thanks, Scott
  16. Hi, I have a clean install of Vectorworks Spotlight 2017 SP2. I have used the straight Truss tool to create a Lighting Position. This worked fine initially. Now when I change the z height of the truss the truss dissapears, in 3d and in Top/Plan view. I don't understand what is going on here. Any help much appreciated. See attached files for details. diappearing_truss.mp4 benlight_demo_show01A.vwx
