Tip: Changing height of multiple Truss Systems at once

Recommended Posts


If you select more than one Truss System in order to change the height via the 'Change Trim Height of System' in the OIP,  you can't as the option is then greyed out. However I just discovered a way to do it easily and thought I'd share. 

Just select all trusses and motors with the selection tool and choose the Move 3D command from the Modify menu. In any view, enter the number in the Z field and the trusses move accordingly with the motors staying put.

Very quick movie no sound attached.

Even better, or at least as good: the Modify>Align Distribute command works for all Truss Systems!

See movie (it takes a few seconds for the command to execute).





PS Just discovered it only works for Bottom not Top alignment which males sense I suppose.
