Is there an easy way to incline a truss with al his lights and connections to get different calculations in Braceworks to see de different load calculations?

The way to do this is to select your truss (all connected sections that you wish to do this with) and toggle the draw 3D only option on in the Object Info Pane

next group select the trusses and lights, change to the appropriate 3D view (front for example) select the rotate tool from the basic tool palette and use it to rotate the selected trusses and lights to the angle you want.

Changing the angle of the trusses and attached lights will break the connections for rigging hoists/deadhangs/bridles so you will then need to re-attach them before you can run any Braceworks calculations.
