braceworks 2022 - wrong calculations


Recommended Posts

So help me if im doing something wrong, as im new to using braceworks. But i inserted a simple 10' stick of truss with a 1000lb point load on it. with 2 motors supporting the span.


truss weight 67 lb

motors with chain weight 187lb each

point load 1000lb


was expecting roughly 720lb per motor  with it being a 50/50 split but when i run calculations it says motors are overloaded with 1273lb per point


what am i doing wrong? or is this right?
