Problem with Speaker Array and Hoists


Leppi

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

i spend some to time to test and improve some workflows in our company.

When I tried the Speaker Array Tool with the Hoists Tool, i got some problems.

If I connect one hoist to a bumper, Braceworks is not able to calculate. It tells me, that the hoist is not connected.

If I change to two hoists, i can connect 2 hoists and Braceworks is able to calculate.

Another problem is, that Vectorworks adds a weight for the whole Array of 50kg. I don't know why, because there is a load for the 4 Speakers and a load for the Bumper.

The 50kg are in the Group Truss.

Any ideas?

 

Best regards,

 

Leppi

Hi Leppi

 

I've had a look at your file

this seems to be because of the hanging angle of the bumper, if the bumper has a hanging angle Braceworks assumes that it needs a second motor.

This looks like a bug, from what I can tell it only appears when multiple hoists are used. I'll get the bug report in.
If you don't want this included in the Load overview you can use the load filter to turn if off. I haven't found a way to turn it off for the create report command though.
