Tracking Lines, Skate Blocks etc.

It’s not always obvious how to calculate the vector forces at play in Tracking Lines and Skate Blocks. They involve a running element and extra ropes which complicate matters but it can be done with RigRite and it’s not too difficult.


Redirect pulley friction

RigRite is all about vector forces and it turns out vector force analysis is the best way to see the effects of friction on redirects/directionals.


Why can't a three point anchor be calculated?

RigRite works by using vector mathematics to analyze how angles affect forces in a system. There are some things that simply cannot be worked out from angles alone, three (or more) point anchor systems is one of them.
