Tip: Changing height of multiple Truss Systems at once

Peter Neufeld

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.

Dear David,

It's probably not a bug but rather a useful happenstance that the above tips worked for the motors in v2020. The Motor objects were totally reworked for 2021 which probably explains it. I think perhaps maybe an enhancement request might be better?
