Aiming Lamps Separately

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

In point-by-point photometrics, each light fixture corresponds to a single lamp. To aim multiple lamps on a single fixture, start by following the instructions in the Multiple Heads on a Fixture article.

After you have created and inserted the light fixtures, there are two methods for aiming the individual lamps:

  • Use the Query Device command to set the tilt of each lamp, then rotate the lamps on the drawing using the standard ROTATE command.
    • Ribbon: DM Electrical->Devices-> dm_elec-devicequery Query Device
      DM Photometrics-> dm_photo-query Query
    • Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Modify Devices->Query Device
      DM Photometrics->Query
  • Use the Aim Light Fixture command on each lamp.
