where can I find a utility pole

Recommended Posts

I would just use a round post without footing. If you need the cross timber then just use general framing or p solid for that.

As with anything in the Library Browser you must know

what Chief chose to call it if you hope to ever find it. The

winning search term is "power pole".

I've had a play with that. I posted this image (or a similar one) 

in the "Show your Goodies" thread many moons ago. As I recall

it went over like the proverbial lead balloon. :)

Rich, That looks great. Is that your home planet where there is no gravity? If so the lead balloon would work there too. Maybe next year when Chief gives us a few more cad tools it will work here on planet Earth. An overhead triplex service wire would be a great thing to be able to build. I built a hydro transformer last year but could not figure out how to hook it up.

Actually things like power lines are a bit problematical in Chief.

They aren't straight lines and they aren't really arcs either. They

are catenaries. Perhaps we should request a Catenary Tool. It

would work for everything from clotheslines to suspension

bridges.
