Wrong geometry with audio LineArray Adamson S10: how to modify it?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a problem with the Adamson S10 and the LineArray Tool.

The geometry is not good...

What I understand:

1/ there is a mistake on the records, the unity is centimeters and not millimeters

2/ Even if I modify this, is still not right

3/ I read in the Vectorworks manual there is a XML file attach with the LineArray tool, but I don't know how to modify it to make this line array ok..

 

Maybe you can help me?

 

Many thanks, 

Charlot

Likely, the "Is Tilt Ref Front" setting in the "__ATS-SpkrModData" Record is set to be "False."  If you change that to "True" in the Symbol definition and Update the array, do things correct themselves?

 

Symbols do not use the XML file.

 

See the manual available at http://www.landrudesign.com/AudioToolSet.htm for more info.  The latter pages give more details about the Library/Catalog and Symbol systems.

Hi @C. Andrew Dunning,

Thank you for your answer!

 

It is a little better, but not completely true.

I have modify the bumper record in millimeter:

After, I change "Is Tilt Ref Front" to true:

So, It is a little better, but I can't use it on a plot, it is too incorrect:

I think the geometry of the S10 speaker is not correct, what do you think about that?

 

Many thanks,

Next step:

I modify the 3D geometry of the speaker, and now, it seems good!

 

The original symbol:

Modify symbol:

And the result with the lineArray Tool:

Now it's running!

 

Best,

Charlot

You've discovered at least 2 issues.:

 

1)  The bumper record is missing units markers so the tool doesn't know what is intended (cm?  mm?  inches?).  The relevant fields must be text fields and must include the units markers.

 

2)  The speaker Symbol may not be formatted correctly.  Again, see the pages in the manual as to how things should be done.

What a surprise!!

Because, even if a take a bumper with hit's record from the premium library, in a new blank document, (so I don't modify it)

the fields of the records are not text but number...

 

Am I oblige to modify the records every time I load a new symbol?

You should not have to modify Record data whenever you use Symbols.  That being said, some of the content is still using an out-dated Record definition and some has not been formatted correctly.  When you find a error, submit a report here,  https://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit, so that fixes can be made.
