  1. Introduction to Marionette - Part 3 - Creating Multiple Objects

    Marionette is a brand new design workflow tool for Vectorworks. It is the first and only cross-platform graphical scripting (or “visual programming”) environment available in a BIM authoring software for the AEC, Entertainment and Landscape industries. It enables a user with few or no programming knowledge and skills to create custom application algorithms to explore designs, build interactive objects and streamline complex workflows that may also include functions of the operating system and internet. 

    Graphical scripting will play a significant role in the workflows of the future. These tools, when built into an intelligent information modeling application such as Vectorworks software, present designers with unlimited opportunities to generate, define, build, and explore form and function throughout the design process.

    This series of video tutorials will introduce you to the basics of working with Marionette and walk you through the basics.

  4. Sine Wave

    Here are a couple wrappers that output sine and cosine waves. I thought the math enthusiasts might find these useful.

  5. Journey Through Marionette - Part 3

    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.  Part 3:
     
     
    MT-21-How to create a grid of objects.vwx 
    MT-22-How to duplicate array tiles.vwx 
    MT-23-How to create a grid and intersect fixed[1].vwx
    MT-24-How to use get list length.vwx
    WT-25-How to create spiral with arcs and clipping mask.vwx 
    WT-26-How to make an object and a copy.vwx 
    WT-27-How to duplicate proportionaly.vwx 
    WT-28-How to create a cube.vwx 
    WT-29-How to grow volumes by remap domain.vwx

  7. 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’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-01-How to make a line.vwx 
    MT-02-How to make a circle.vwx
    MT-03-How to rotate a rectangle.vwx 
    MT-04-How to duplicate a line.vwx
    MT-05-How to duplicate a rectangle.vwx 
    MT-06-How to duplicate and rotate a rectangle.vwx 
    MT-07-How to create four rectangles.vwx
    MT-08-How to class objects.vwx 
    MT-09-How to create spiral with lines.vwx 
    MT-10-How to duplicate and scale a circle.vwx

  8. List of Files and Folders in a Directory

    This example shows, how to list filenames and foldernames of a folder on your disk. 
     
    Contains the following Custom Nodes:
    1. "GetActFile" --> The Path of the active Vectorworks document.
    2. "ListDir" --> Folder- and Filenames of a directory
    3. "GetNextObject" --> Handy to grab objects directly out of the script
     
    short movie documentation:

  9. Colorize Subtext within a Text Object

    In this Example there are used some custom Nodes:
     
    1. "GetSubstring" --> Search for a string inside another string and returns Position and count. This will be necessary to set them to a Text Style Resource.
    2. "GetInsideChar" --> Returns strings which are inside specified characters (normally quote or double quote)
    3. "GetSubstringExcludeQuote" --> Same as the first one, but it to not return text inside quotes
    4. "GetNumberFromString" --> Search for Numbers inside a String.
    5. "GetNextObj" --> Put This in a Wrapper and it will return the next object after this node. This is a great one!! Can be used also for input geometry inside a script network. Without naming or other smut.
     
    This could be improved by further code (find standalone or text in word, find integer, find float, etc.) But It works for most cases perfectly.

  10. Component Wall from Surface

    Here is a script that converts a NURBS surface to a wall with components that can be exported to IFC. The wall is an Auto Hybrid object made up of 3D Solids that match the thicknesses and attributes of the components of a referenced wall style. CWS_1212_IFC.vwx
     
    A couple caveats: Make sure that wall style names do not  have a single or double quotation symbol in the name - it will get misinterpreted by the String Node. Also, if your base surface is an Interpolated Surface, use the tool in the 3D Power Pack - Rebuild NURBS... - to convert it to a standard NURBS surface.

  11. Natural color spectrum

    In this example you can find a node that returns a spectrum of colors and a Wrapper for creating random 3d Points.
    Saturation and Brightness can be changed in the OIP.
