Hi All, In our rental stock we got some 5/10/20 ShowMatch modules with woofers and I was wondering where i can get the Modeler data for ShowMatch speakers since they are not on the pro website. We are going to use them next week with in a rental project and i want to configure them as much as possible in advance since i already know the size of the venue, all the jobs until now where done with modeler projects made by Danny Schouten @ Bose Purmerend (NL) office. thanks in advance for the...
Hi Jeroen, the Modeler release that includes ShowMatch is not yet ready and there's more than just new .spm's. So for now, if you need a modeled design, you'd have to check with Danny. But just these days, we are releasing a beta for the Bose Array Tool and it should be available to all forum members soon. I'll post the link to the discussion here as soon as it is available. Thanks and best rgds, Thomas
How do we tell Modeler to use the SMAF or SMAFT frame for ShowMatch? For instance, we have a full frame (SMAF) but want to use a center-multipoint? There does not appear to be a way to select this option. Therefore the rigging report calculations for total weight will be wrong (and possibly center of gravity?) if we just use the software given solution of t-bar plus multipoint.
Hi, guys. I've been having issues with 6.10 with SHOWMATCH and ROOMMATCH arrays. When I do CTRL+C/CTRL+V the software crashes and there´s no way to recover the model. This is a very useful tool when working on stadiums and sports using several distributed arrays. Is this something we can check? Thanks, D.C.
Hi Diego, Sorry for the inconvenience. I tried to reproduce, but was only partly 'successful'. But it seems like the problem only occurs when 'Auto-Layout' is selected - can you confirm this ? I also noticed that Modeler may crash upon normal close, after a model with copy/pasted arrays has been successfully saved. The model will not be corrupted. I'll pass this on to Engineering. Thanks and best rgds, Thomas
Hi Diego, could you please post a model and steps to reproduce ? Pls. also include some info about your system, like OS, etc. You could also send a (zipped) System Info file. If the model is confidential, pls. send via PM. Thanks again, Thomas
Hi guys, please let us know at least the OS you are running. It looks like Diego is running Win10. I just tried again on another Win 7 machine and copy-pasted like 30 arrays of all kinds w/out any problem. Please see the Help menu, select System Info. Save the info file, zip it up (it's a large .txt file) and attach to this topic. Again, thanks much and sorry for the inconvenience. best rgds, Thomas
Hi all. When designing a small SM system were the subs are arrayed with the FR modules the Link Bar & Pullup is a very nice feature to save cost and weight. However it’s not an option in Modeler 6.10.17. When this is missing the pickup point, total weight and image of the cluster is wrong in the rigging report. I would very much like this small but useful feature be added in next release. Best regards Jorgen Allen
Hej Jorgen, I think I better leave the feature requests for the Product Managers... I wonder what you are missing most: Are you concerned about a wrong pickup-point being predicted ? I would say that with a typical design, like the one you showed, the influence of the link bars on CoG is negligible. The array weighs 230 kg and the LB's just a percent or so of that weight. Hope this helps... Best rgds, Thomas
Hej Jorgen. I have to correct myself. In my reply from above, I forgot to consider the extra full frame. I just considered the additional weight of the link bars. Those I would neglect, but probably not the second full frame. In the end, it all depends on where the COGs of the individual parts are (it's simple levers in side view), so e.g. 3x SM20 would show a different effect than 3x SM5 with no splay. Sorry for the confusion. I'll try to see if we can use a sheet from ME to calculate...
Hi Thomas. I forgot to add the pullup on the array above.Below is the closest prediction you can get and the difference then is:Minus 1x SMAF 37,6 kg, and Plus link bar (negligible as you write) So my biggest concern is that the prediction includes 2 SMAF (37,6kg) and with link bars you only use 1. //jorgen
No worries TS. I’m not doing a specific design with link bars right now, but question are coming from dealers why the feature of link bar is not part of Modeler rigging. So it would be nice if it could make it some day. all the best, jorgen
Hi! I'm Kent from Kuala Lumpur. currently my Showmatch inventory is 24 top & 12 bottoms. I want to ask, aside from the Modeler software, is there any simpler Bose Array calculations software that I can use for my shows.
Thanks Trevor. Noted on Ease Focus 3. Currently I’m using it to do all the calculations. Is there any similar to software like Ease Focus 3 by Bose in near future. Do keep me in the loop if there’s any. Thanks.
