Prolyte PRT is red

Recommended Posts

Did you get any of the warning notes when you did the calculation? Are the warning notes classes turned on? For me, red usually means I missed the mark when connecting the hoists and the truss itself is not actually attached, hence not supported.

This is a strange problem. Concern only Prolyte Touring Truss. I thing Cross Section is broken. If I change cross section to other manufacture. I have no problem.


I have clean VW. I use blank file for test it. I have all classes on. I use VW SP3 PC Won 10 Pro. 


If I use blank file, calculate dialog box do not show any errors but on pdf raport some Tube workload are red and have no value.

If I use old file where i find this bug, calculate report show errors and raport show Tube workload at 300%


I do not Braceworks expert but Why this problem is only on Prolyte Touring Truss?


Coul you try replicate my proble on yours machine?

@Rob Books When I am in the office, I will send it, but you can do simple test. 


Create blank file

Add 3xProlyte S36PRF-L305

Add 2xHoist

Calculate should be ok

Select All (Ctrl+A) 

Rotate tool about 15 deg

Calculate should be wrong


I tested it on two different PC and get the same wrong result with S36PRF-L305 only.

yes, we tested it, and it seems to be the rotation that is causing the error.  just want to see it in your file too.
