I have some problems calculating a simple truss with a LED screen.  it seams like the wight dosent distribute to the Hoist as it should...

So, I have a led screen on 18m hanging on a 18m truss with 6 hoist ( 3m apart ) the total weight is 3660 kg with the led screen being 3000kg. When I do the calculation it shows that all the 6 hoist are holding around 1000kg each... making the total weight they are holding 5000kg... someone who can point out what I'm doing wrong?

have you checked the safety factors in the Braceworks settings?
from your rough figures I would say its set to one of the default Eurocode standards.
Either reset them to useability or custom with a factor of 1 in every load category
