Custom Lighting Instrument Symbols


Recommended Posts

I've asked it once, and I'll give it another go...

Does anyone (NNA included) know how to get functioning Lighting Instrument Symbols added to Vectorworks. For instance, I have the IES files for the lights the company I work for makes, but lack the ability and knowledge to create lighting fixtures myself (many failed attempts with the line light tool). Is there a submital process? Thanks blush.gif

The VW library has lighting fixtures already created for you, if you want to use one of those. You could even use those as a guide to create your own.

The IES information is also inside the symbol, so you could easily adjust the IES information to something specfic to your needs.

If you are still stuck, we can set up a training session tomorrow morning and I can walk you through the steps.
