CRASH! - Insert connection tool

Recommended Posts

When trying to connect the circular truss in the attached file to the top tri truss, i get a repeatable instant crash.  I am using a hoist symbol as the connection.  It does not matter if the truss circular truss is flat or at an angle.


The connection I am attempting is this:




Also on the rare occasions that it does not crash, the low hook of the hoist does not appear in the correct position, it sits directly below the circle as if it was not at an angle.  The Z value of the hook is the same as the centre of the circle truss or possibly the Z value of the start of the truss section it is attaching to1:




Looks like another annoying bug that us paying beta testers now expect to come across.

Hi Mike


Just out of interest if the flown circular truss is horizontal when you make the connection then rotate it with the 2d rotate tool on screen plane from that connection do you still get the crash?


I will take a look at your file.


All the best
