How to know the total weight with Insert Truss tool?

Recommended Posts


I understand that Hanging Position is an old tool, and it's preferable to work today with Insert Truss tool.

But, one of the biggest information getting by Hanging Position tool is the total weight of the truss system (truss + lights + cable + what you want which is hanging to the truss).


How can I get this data when using the Insert Truss tool?

The goal of this request is to create a worksheet for the rigger, with (non exhaustive list):

  • Name of the truss system
  • Truss symbols which are present and their count
  • Height of the truss system
  • Total weight of the truss system


Thanks for your help!

In the OIP select system objects will update the weight displayed in the OIP.


Or you can make your truss objects a single hanging position if you wish.
