Braceworks Hoist Connections / Braceworks Bridle

Recommended Posts


As I'm new to Vectorworks and Braceworks I have few problems with connections between trusses and hoist. 




Can someone tell me why hoist are visualised like that? If I change any parameter of that hoist by hand in Info Palette - Braceworks says that hoists are not connected. If I connect hoists to trusses - it looks like that and parameters in PIO are completly stupid...




Second problem - I have inserted House Rigging Point, set the Allowable Force Z to 1,5kN, connected truss using bridle, calculated the system in Braceworks and... it changes Allowable Force Z to 5 kN which is 3,5kN more than house rigging point can take... Why?


Thanks for help
