Hello Community!

This Saturday, April 11, from 9am – 1pm EDT we will be performing maintenance on the Vectorworks Community Board. During this time, the site will be unavailable.

Marionette - Nodes

55 files

  1. Popup enhanced

    This node makes it easier to create a custom popup. In addition to the index, it also returns the string of the selection.
     
    I think I have seen a similar node from Marissa before. But I could not find it anymore.

  2. Filter Type

    This node filters all objects of a certain type from a list.
     
    This function could also be achieved with standard nodes, but is easier to do it in a separate node.

  3. Control Geometry enhanced

    This node simplifies the creation and the debugging of marionette objects (MO).
     
    Outside a MO it returns the geometry from a blue symbol. No contents node are necessary.
    Within a MO it returns all objects of the control geoemtry. Groups in the control geometry are no longer necessary.
    If there is no control geometry, the node behaves like outside of a MO and returns the contents of the symbol.

  4. Line Plane Intersection Node

    Description
    This node calculates where a line (not a line segment!) and a plane intersect.
     
    Input / output
    The plane is defined by its normal vector and a point on the plane. The line is defined by two points. The output point is where the line and plane intersect.
     
    Example Usage
    The example in the file combines the node with the Get Distance node to check if a three dimensional line intersects with a NURBS surface. This network can be used to create several simulations that can answer questions like: Do sunrays reach a balcony? Is the church tower visible from a window? Etc.
     
    Script is based on: https://rosettacode.org/wiki/Find_the_intersection_of_a_line_with_a_plane#Python
    The node uses numpy. Thanks to DomC for creating a numpy importer node.

  6. Cabinet in one node incl. Ardis Export

    This node is programmed in Dutch.
    The node is made to convert to a plug-in.
    Not converted, a Top-plan geometry will be visible. If you install the plug-in, the geometry will work as it should.
    Attached an English plug-in. ("AR_Cabinet2019 EN") For the non Dutch 🙂
     
     See screen shots to understand  "Front distribution", "cutout in sides", "shelves distribution"
     
    Enjoy.

  7. Various old nodes

    Hi, These are all the nodes i collected or made myself. HTH
    They are listed under the users i collected them from.
     
    If tiy put these in your workgroup folder in a folder called Marionette and restart VW and update library they will be available in the dropdown menu.
     
    Vwctorworks/(your workgroup folder)/Libraries/Defaults. if these folders fon't exist jut create empty folders so vw can follow to the files.
    Some will be out of date so see how they go.

  12. Space to Poly

    This node returns the floor surface geometry of spaces as polylines and various space parameters.
     
    Whenever you need to extract the floor surface or certain properties (without destroying the space object) to use it in a network or before using a tool like Tiles or Area Verification, this node will come in handy.

  13. Symbol to Group

    This node converts referenced symbol to group using the specified conversion options.
    OIP controls:
    Options
    Don't convert subobjects Convert plug-in and symbol subobjects Convert all subobjects Group (*)
    Keep group (leaves symbol contents in a group - in addition to the usual grouping by Marionette) Ungroup group (ungroups symbol content, but you get the usual grouping by Marionette)  
    (*) Information for Marionette aficionados:
    Due to the nature of the underlying VectorScript command vs.SymbolToGroup(), simply using this.SetLinksObjects() doesn't work. In order to overwrite the network output properly, the following had to be done:
    "Keep group" actually moves all group content into a new group, then deletes the old group "Ungroup group" actually recreates all group content outside the group, then deletes the old group

  14. Delaunay Triangulation

    This node returns sets of points forming triangles from a list of vertices for any given 2D polygon.
    When running for the first time, the node will ask to install the SciPy library, which is required to use Delaunay triangulation.
     
    To learn more about Delaunay triangulation, have a look at the Wikipedia article.
     
    Created by ComputerWorks GmbH.
    Compatibility: Vectorworks 2019 and higher; Python 3.5.0 or higher.
    Requirements: SciPy (python library)
    Limitations: Holes in polys are ignored. One way to overcome this limitation is to use Get Holes in Poly.

  17. Get Symbol from Folder

    This node returns the name of a symbol chosen via selection dialog with previews of the symbols in the current document. If a folder name is given, only its content is shown.
     
    When dealing with a big number of different symbols with long and possibly names difficult to remember, just click the "Select Symbol ..." (OIP) and visually select the symbol within the dialog window.

  24. Polygon Survey

    A Node which creates Measure Lines in Polygons (Line from every vetex point to every other vertex point).
     
    1. p2p Lines:
      
     

     
     
     
    2. Perpentidular Lines (Perpentidular Line from every poly vertex on every poly edge):

     

     
     
    To sort out needless lines, there are several filters integrated:
    1. Double Lines automatically filtered with an epsilon (p2p is not the same as perpenticular if you look all 15 digits)
    2. Measure Lines, which are identical with poly edges
    3. Measure Lines, which are outside of the polygon
    4. Overlapping lines. If two lines are parallel and both points of the smaller lines are on the bigger line, the bigger line is filtered
     
    5. Filter Lines over and lower than min max values 
     
    6. An Option, to return a number of length (Return first x values). As example if there are measure lines with the length (1.2, 1.2, 1.25, 1.5,) and the value is 1, two lines with 1.2 will be returned. This value is holding on perpendicular and p2p lines. 
     
    Summary:
    Turn off Debug options like "Show Edge", "show Outside Poly", Filter small length (niches) and set "Return first x values" on 1 or 2 to get optimal results. So a normal result will look like this:
     

     
    Attached there are three examples. An Example with spaces, An examples just with polys and an example as PlugIn. PlugIn is good for playing with the options to see changes prompt.
