@wadecordts There are now eight new product lines from XSF released in the Service Select libraries including the 12x12 Protective Bolt Plate.  Currently there is no cross section data but that is being worked on as we speak but at least the symbols with weights are present.

How is it that a year later and we still don't have the 20.5" XSF truss in the service select library? 

Also, how is it Vectorworks 2021 brought no improvements for to the software for truss builders?

we need the data for the truss from the manufacturers, sometimes they are slow in getting us the data.  if you reach out to them and let them know they need to make this  line a priority hopefully they will get the data to us quicker.

What data do you need from them? They responded to my email and sent me over their CAD files for all their truss without delay. Many of the other truss in the library is set to Rigid for cross section data. Why can’t Vectorworks just add the truss into the library in the same fashion using the CAD files?

the product lines we have available is what they sent us the cad files for.  cross sectional data is hard coded into the software so can only be made available in releases or service packs.  and we need the complete structural data from the manufacturer to create those.
