Adjusting the Mast Bearing

The mast bearing can be adjusted while creating or editing a structure, and can be adjusted independently from the foundation bearing. In this example we are going edit the mast bearing of an existing structure.

Step 1: Navigate to the 'Structures' section of the Lineardraft toolbar

Step 2: Click the 'Adjust' button

Step 3: Click on the structure with the mast you want to adjust

This will open the 'Edit Structure' window.

Step 4: Adjust the 'Bearing' value box next to the mast graphic

You can either click the arrow buttons or type the value directly into the box.

Top tip: While foundation and mast bearings can be adjusted independently, you can quickly align them by pressing the 'Match' button. If you click 'Match' next to the mast bearing, it will instantly match the value to the foundation's bearing, and vice-versa.

The below diagram illustrates what direction the mast, and by extension the gantry, will rotate when you increase or decrease the bearing value.

More info: You can reset the mast bearing to the default rotation for that structure type by clicking the 'Reset' button. Your bearings are also reset to default if you change structure type.

Step 5: Click 'Confirm'

This will close the 'Edit Structure' window and make your changes.
