Hoists on Bridles gives 0 on Load

Recommended Posts



why is the load on my hoists 0 if they are connected on a bridle?

I also want to know what the load is of my Hoists so that we know how many % the are already loaded.

Hi Jeroen


What service pack are you on?
and are you using the standard US English language license?

This issue was fixed in service pack 3 and when I tried to reproduce your image using SP3.1 (current English release, build 588748 ) the hoists displayed the force acting on them correctly

if you are have already upgraded please pm me and I'll investigate,

Hi Jesse,


thx for the answer.


I'm currently working on SP2 Build 574483, I've tried the SP3 on my MacPro 2014 but crashes wen I calculate. On SP2 it doesn`t crash.

I will try SP3 on my macbook today.
