Video Projector Tool

Question

Can you rotate the projectors to be on there side and still use the all the video screen tools?

 

I have an installation for an event and all the projectors are being placed on there side to project large portrait projections.  How can I show this in Vectorworks using the current tools set?

You can simply edit the symbol used for the projector, rotate it around the center of the projector lens in the 3D component of the symbol, modify the 2D portion of the symbol to display as you like and then you can keep using it as a Video Screen.

For the tool to work correctly you have to do 2 things:

1)  Create your own projector or modify one of the existing models so that the geometry is oriented as you wish - making sure the values in the attached record are updated.

2)  Change the name of the projector to include the text, "-Side."  This will signal the tool to make calculations based on portrait orientation.

 

You'll see that there are several stock projectors that are already prepared to do this.
