Imperial Bridle Lengths

Recommended Posts

What is the easiest way to have the Bridal Calculations done With Imperial instead of Metric Steel Lengths?


I feel like I am missing something easy.

Everything in the Document Is set to Imperial.


But In the Manage Bridal Parts All I see are Metric Parts? In reading help section it mentions editing the File in the Default Library File.


Do we really have to go make our own imperial library to have this work? 


No Steel 5',10',15',20' ?

Give me a few minutes and I will make you those four pieces of imperial length steel and send you the instructions to get them into your document for use.

Guys why don’t you make your own symbols?

Just edit the stockbridle file

I’ve posted mine a while ago and updated it for my personal use a lot after that (beamclamps, basketsteels,all length i use....)


take a look and edit the stock file
