Attaching Speaker Array with hoist to the truss above

Recommended Posts

Hello. I came across with one thing. I need to put a hoist between my speaker array and truss and I also need to have all of them as a system which can be calculated in a Braceworks. I can easily attach a hoist to the speaker array. Then I need to attach the high hook to the truss above. Is there any way to do it?

There isn't a way to do this directly as you would need to use the insert connection tool to connect the hoist to the truss, which doesn't work with a speaker array.

The workaround is to use a point load object to represent the combined weight of the hoist and array,
just make sure to exclude the hoist and speaker array from your final Braceworks calculations.
