A "bight" is a simple loop in a rope that does not cross itself.

A "bend" is a knot that joins two ropes together. Bends can only be attached to the end of a rope.

A "hitch" is a type of knot that must be tied around another object.

"Descending devices" (e.g., ATCs, Brake Bar Racks, Figure 8s, Rescue 8s, etc) create friction as their primary purpose. The friction in descending devices is always considered when calculating forces.

The "Safety Factor" is the ratio between the gear's breaking strength and the maximum load applied to the gear (e.g., 5:1).

Moving vRigger to a New Computer

Unlicensing vRigger

If you still have access to your old computer, you should unlicense vRigger on your old computer so you can reuse the license key on your new computer.

If you no longer have access to your old computer, please contact us and request that we reset your license key. Be sure to provide the name and email address you used when you purchased vRigger, and a brief explanation of why you need your key reset.

Downloading vRigger

You can download vRigger onto your new computer from https://vRigger.com/download.

Transferring Your Work

To transfer your rigging files, copy any files with the *.rig file extension to the similarly named folder on your new computer. These files are normally stored a folder named \Documents or \Documents\vRigger.

If you saved vRigger snippets, copy files with the *.rrs file extension from the folder named \ProgramData\Iterum\vRigger\Gear to the indentically named folder on your new computer. You can quickly access this folder by clicking the Folder button in the Gear Builder.

If you created your own gear using the Gear Builder, copy files with the *.rra file extension from the folder named \ProgramData\Iterum\vRigger\Gear to the indentically named folder on your new computer. You can quickly access this folder by clicking the Folder button in the Gear Builder. Do not copy files that begin with the letters "FIA". Those are the gear files that are distributed with vRigger and they will be created automatically when you reinstall vRigger.
