Pipe Load attaching to System Load ?

Recommended Posts

So I have lighting attached to a lighting pipe connected to truss.  I have the truss connection diamond showing the pipe connection.  When I select the system and run a calculation the pipe is not added to calc.  Any ideas?  It shows the connection highlighted but not the Pipe or the lights.

They might have become disconnected so it would be worth redoing the connection again. It works in my simple test.

One thing I have found is that if you select the truss and in the OIP choose 'Select System Objects' the pipe isn't selected. If I only select the pipe and in the OIP choose 'Select Truss System' only the pipe and any loads attached are selected but not the truss. This is confusing IMO.
