Fork Truss Gates / Corners

Recommended Posts

Using James Thomas 20.5 x 20.5 Supertruss. Laying out a simple grid. I can corner without issue. When I try to "T" a truss and use a gate it all breaks down and I get loads of errors. What am I doing wrong? Attached is an example of what I am talking about.

Also - why do the gates default to the middle of the truss and work BUT when you move them to the correct position they fail?

@mlance What version of Vectorworks are you using?  In VW2020 the gates were setup to properly work with the auto connect feature.

This is 2020. I used auto connect for the gates. they get placed in the middle of the truss still. And there is no way to "T" a truss with the auto connect.It just goes to the end of the existing truss run. I had to move the truss into position manually.

Please post your file if you are able/allowed and I will take a look and make it work if I can.  I will probably have to make a duplicate symbol as I only set up the gates to function as traditional corners and not T-Corners.  If you can't post your file please let me know what gates you are using and I will send you a replacement symbol.

This should work for you.  To connect the lower T you will have to hover pretty high on the symbol as the rest of the T is missing because it is made of the other straight pieces of truss.  Let me know if you have issues, I tested it and it worked for me.
