Connecting hoist to truss

Recommended Posts



Is it possible to connect a truss to a hoist and have it move with the trim height of the hoist?

You need to change the trim height of the truss system not the hoist hook.  The hoist hook will adjust to the new trim height but not the other way round

ok that works, thank you. I can all of a sudden no longer change my trim height though. The option grays out when I select the system. I find myself starting over again and again, dreading that the system will stop wanting to be trimmed. I can't make out what I might have done to it.


I am trying to understand the connecting (red lines) and system relationship of trusses (and also hoists). Is there a good tutorial or some documentation out there?

Strangely, you can only change the trim height with one truss object selected, it will move the rest of the system as well though as long as you have it all connected properly
