Marionette - Networks

62 files

  1. Growing Lines

    This example is based on a custom node. which returns a line pattern. This pattern is based on several while and random loops. I have not found a proper way to run a while loop over a marionette network so this is better to create in a custom node.
     
    It is easier to play with the example, than explaining exactly how it works. 
     
    Have fun with it. This is my base study to find a workflow to project any pattern on a NURBS Surface which would be a real scope of usage.

  3. Create Record from external File

    This example shows, how to create a record format with fields from an external csv or text-tab file with marionette.
     
    This example maybe needs the following know how which is not automatically is handled by the script:
     
    1. Save Text with excel, open office or any other application as separated text file or tab separated text file.
    2. Setup the "import txt" node-popup with the needed text encoding. Try utf-8, Latin1,  macLatin_2 or other encoding to handle umlauts or special character issues.
    3. The Exmaple just checks the first line of the text-file and creates record fields from them
    4. The path to the text-input in the attached example is related to the document path. Save first your Vectorworks document. Or use an absolute path input.  
    5. No warranty or charge for this script, play first on a new file or on the attached file.
     
    I whish you success with it

  5. Journey Through Marionette - Part 1

    Now that graphical scripting is a reality in Vectorworks software, my designing spirit has been fantasizing about many forms and shapes. I’ve been clicking the mouse for over 20 years and feel like our software is like an extension of my drafting board, but I recently learned that Marionette requires a different but exciting approach. Graphical scripting to me is a form of exploration in a foreign language, it satisfies my curiosity and offers instantaneous alternatives.
     
    I’d like to share my experience and discoveries with Marionette and I continue to explore, and hopefully inspire you to give it a try and ultimately share the knowledge with our community.  My first attempts were all 2d based, nothing great, just crawling before walking. Here is a list of files.

    MT-02-How to make a circle.vwx
    MT-03-How to rotate a rectangle.vwx

  6. Test Proximity and Associate Existing Trees

    This file is most useful for Landmark users but could be adapted to other plugin objects (PIOs). The purpose of these scripts are to take surveys of existing trees that consist of "dumb" data - pieces of geometry and text to label trees on a survey - and convert it into Existing Trees with the relevant text data associated.
     
    The first network, "Test Proximity," runs a check to make sure that each piece of text is closest to its associated piece of geometry. This is necessary to make sure that the second script will work properly.
     
    The second network takes the center of each piece of geometry and places an Existing Tree there. It will use the saved red symbol in the Resource Manager as a template, so if you use particular default settings for your Existing Trees, you can edit the red symbol. (Some day maybe there will be an Existing Tree Style!) The network will also transfer the text data to your chosen field of the Existing Tree PIO. In this network, it is set to transfer to the Tree No data field.
     
    This network could be adapted to other PIOs if needed.

  7. Fill Spaces With Symbols

    Imagine you have client, which delivers you a room list. And a list, which objects have to be in this rooms. You can consider this lists with hundreds of rooms on your left screen and click them one by one in your rooms. You will make errors and your eyes will get squared.
    Another real interesting example how you could accelerate a routine job with a marionette script.

  8. Convert text to 3D Locus

    In French :
    Parfois un plan de mesurage ne contient que les textes des niveaux sans aucun symbole ou point 3D.  Il n'est donc pas possible de créer un terrain 3D.
    Ce script permet de créer pour l'ensemble des points des points 3D ayant pour valeur Z le texte lui même, sur une autre couche .
     
    In English :
    Sometimes a measurement plan contains only the texts of the levels without any symbol or 3D point. It is therefore not possible to create a 3D terrain.
    This script makes it possible to create 3D points for the set of points having the value Z the text itself, on another layer.

  9. Tiles

    This tool was
    commissioned by ComputerWorks GmbH
    edited by: Markus Graf and Pascal Völz
    supervised by: Antonio Landsberger
     
    Compatibility: Vectorworks 2019 and higher.
     
    Tiles is a Marionette tool for bond pattern planning using geometric shapes (circle, poly line, polygon, rectangle) to show distribution of whole and cut tiles.
    For easier usage a wrapper node is provided.
     
    How to use:
    a) Place the geometries (rooms) in the class "Rooms".
    b) Place the arrow (in class "Direction") inside the room you want to get the tile pattern for.
    c) Change the values according to your liking.
    d) Run the wrapper node.
    e) Update table.
     
    To do:
    - update table when running script
    - implement an add-on to turn spaces into polygons (soon)
    - implement more than one bond pattern

  14. Export SheetLayers as txt (Text-Tab)

    This Scripts help you exporting your layout structure to get an external list of your drawings if needed.
     
    Exports Sheet Name, Title, Page Size and Page Numbers. Export Folder can be selected. FileName.txt can be set in ObjectInfo of wrapper. Grey and orange nodes (Screenshot) are custom nodes. "Manipulate File" is edited (codex utf_8) to support special characters like äöüé etc.
    Note: I think Excel on Mac has issues handle the exported file's special characters (utf_8 encoding), not my fault I guess. The codex can be changed inside "Manipulate File" Node if you are not happy with the exported text encoding or find/replace on the other Software.

  15. Automatically convert groups (or other objects) into symbol

    Imagine: You have just received a file containing a large number of objects that need to be transformed into symbols.  This typically happens when I buy a file containing objects that are not symbols after import.  
    This tool transforms the objects that meet the chosen criteria into symbols in OIP  and places them in a new folder whose name you specify.
    In OIP Choose : The symbol préfix; the name for the symbol folder and the criteria configuration.
    Very handy!

    They comprise of 12 architectural arches; Semi-Circle, Segmental, Equilateral, Lancet, Drop, Tudor, Turkish, Rampant, Parabolic, Involuted, Arabic and Ogee Arches.

    All the networks are parametric, customizable and can be freely modified.

    Would appreciate your comments.

  17. Extrude along Path with Ref point

    The standard behaviour of the extrude along path tool is to center the profile on the path and after creation we are able move it. This works pretty good. If we use the extrude along path node, is is not so easy to move the profile group after creation. This example shows how to do.
    1. Put a 2D locus point in your (blue) symbol as a reference point and put it in the background (cmd/ctrl + B)
    2. the script will measure this point and after creation of the extrude along path it will move the profile group
     
    Specials:
    - A custom node to get the profile group of the path
    - A custom node to reset the extrude along path object after moving profile group

  18. Infographics

    This is an old file that I have recently resurrected. It is one of the first files I ever created and represents my favorite way to use Marionette: infographics. I thought I had posted it here, but I can't find it, so I figured I would post it again. This file contains some custom infographics that I created based off of the polys in this file that have records attached. I have included a second layer that has some chart nodes from the default library.

  21. Bar Diagram

    A nice, small Marionette for creating bar diagrams. This is much more simpler and more flexible than a spread sheet bar diagram.
     
     
    Options:
    1. ColNames
    2. Col Values -> mandatory
    3. RefValue -> A bar with this value, has the height of the BArHeigtRefValue field
    4. BarWidth
    5. BarHeigtRefValue
    6. Invert -> A bigvalues results in small bar
     
    There is a 2 minute movie (without audio)

  23. Extrude Rails by rectangle / custom profile by name
