Symbole request - Robe pickle patt

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I'm looking for a Robe pickle patt symbol /model, so far I can only find the Patt 2013 and 2017.

There is probably a way to scale down the patt 2013 but I couldn't figure out how to do that. 

On that note if anyone knows also how to rotate the yoke on the patt it will be awesome

 

Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance

Hello,

 

If you know the dimensions of the pickle Patt you can use the existing geometry of the Patt 2013 and use the Modify>Scale Objects command and use Symmetric by Distance.  Make sure that you are in the Edit 3D component mode and that you make sure to realign all of the parts properly as well as place the 3D loci properly.  You will also have to redraw the 2D geometry to the new size as well.

What kind of rotation were you looking to do for the yoke?  That will determine the best way to rotate it.

I have a Pickle Patt which is just a symbol just now, I'll happily share if you want to convert it to a Fixtrure?

Set the lamp to RGB 255, 214, 170 for a nice tungsten effect

Lovely work!

Have you used the ONE Patt yet? Am eager to hear about real-world experiences with those.

I've not seen the OnePatt yet, don't think there are any in the rental market around here

Hey there Mike; as you may have seen, in 2019 there are pre-built Robe PATT 2017s!! Huzzah! Having been pointed in that direction by Rob Books I think, I have placed them in a drawing and found that the filed  & beam angles set as their default is 37º. I notice yours set to 94º field / 29º beam. How did you come up with those numbers?

TiA,

Michael

Hey there MikeW, I didn't find Beam/Field angles on the website, so wrote you & then called the US office and they kindly emailed me the specs for both PATT 2013 + 2017 & Pickle Patt. DM me if that data is of interest.
