Matthews C-Stand objects

Recommended Posts

Excited to see that the grip library is expanding with the inclusion of the Manfrotto stand symbols.

 

Can we expect Matthews c-stand symbols not far behind?

Hi!

 

Have the C Stand symbols arrived yet? I can't seem to find them in the resource manager..

 

Thanks

they are on the list, that does not mean we are working on them.  before we work on a library, we go to the manufacturer for permissions, sometimes this is a quick process, sometimes it takes months or even years.  I talked to one manufacturer at a trade show four years ago who said they were interested in adding to VW, since then they will not return my emails or calls so that library is yet to be touched.

Hey Rob

 

Ok thanks for the update.

 

Seems odd that some manufactures are not willing to jump onboard. From my own experience if the symbol appears in the the resource manager, it has much more chance of being used on site! 

What I find equally puzzling is why the truss symbol library is so small compared to availability of DWG symbols.

 

Looping back to the C stands - I am sure the Manfrotto Avenger C Stand would suffice and seeing that there has been a massive update to Manfrotto lighting stands recently. Would this be possible?

 

Cheers

Before Braceworks, we really didn't deal with too much truss.  now, we are getting more and more truss coming onboard.  That being said, Truss is a very intensive library to make up.  we often have lots of cleanup of the manufacturer files, then adding on the Braceworks data takes a good amount of time.

 

I can see about the Manfrotto Avenger C and getting that out with the next Service Select release.

 

Rob.

You could always make your one C-stand. What would be really killer is if there were a plugin that allowed you to spec a stand and tell it the height and arm length. Sort of like the genie lift tool.

Just out of interest and over one year on.. I was wondering how we are doing with the Matthews stand symbols?

I suggest contacting Andy Dunning and see if he will code one. Then he can add that functionality to the lift tool. Now would be a good time since we are all looking for projects.
