  1. Barn Door

    Here is a Marionette object that functions as a schematic Barn Door. It opens and closes with a slider and has separate 2D and 3D geometry. The wheel and hanger are a symbol, so if you wish to change their look you can edit the current symbol or create a new one. The insertion point of the symbol must be where the wheel touches the track.

  4. Asterisk Wall Clock Object

    This is a Marionette object that is a wall clock. The time of the clock can be set by sliders in the OIP. The three pieces of the clock: the face, the hour hand, and the minute hand are all symbols that can be changed. The only important aspect of the symbols is that the XZ value of the insertion point for all the symbols be at the center of rotation and the Y value be relative to the clock face.

  5. NanaWall WA67

    This is a Marionette Object that can be used to simulate the WA67 Aluminum Clad Wood Folding NanaWall door. It allows you to set the panel width and height as well as the configuration and system. Based on these parameters, it calculates the overall frame width and height and creates a record format for the door that can be called in a worksheet. The insertion point of the door is the center left of the door, so if you choose a configuration with a different number of panels or you change the panel width, the PIO will extend or contract from the left (instead of from the center like regular door PIOs in Vectorworks). I would welcome feedback on the usefulness of this - is there something you would like it to do that it doesn't do? What does it do that you don't need it to do? As far as other types of NanaWalls (such as sliding panels), I am trying to figure out a way to script those as well.

  6. JLG Condor 60

    This is another Marionette object based on a symbol belonging to @barnes2000. (Thanks Scott!) He has built a bunch of cool crane and lift symbols. This one is an Articulating Boom Lift that has seven different rotation or extension articulations. Each has a Slider in the OIP that allows you to set its angle or extension. (See video.) This Marionette object works by placing the different parts of the Lift as symbols in the drawing at a particular insertion point and rotation based on the values of the Sliders. Each symbol has named loci that are used to locate the object in the drawing space and in relation to the other parts. The loci are on an invisible class (so don't delete the class from the drawing). The object updates pretty quickly for having so many variables. If you wish to share the object to another file, make sure that you import the entire symbol folder.
     
    Unlike the Scissor Lift, this object is not built from hybrid symbols because hybrid symbols cannot be rotated around the x- or y-axis. If you wish to convert it to a hybrid object, you could place it inside an Auto Hybrid, but this will make it a much bigger object (memory-wise), and you would only be able to edit the object from inside the Auto Hybrid.

  7. Scissor Lift

    This Marionette object is a Scissor Lift PIO. You can place the Scissor Lift in your drawing and set the height via a Slider in the OIP. (See video.) All the different parts of the Lift are different symbols, and the Marionette script places each symbol at a particular insertion point and rotation based on the value of the Slider. If you wish to share the object, make sure that you share the entire symbol folder that holds all of its accompanying parts.
     
    This object was based on a symbol created by @barnes2000. Thanks Scott for letting me play!

  8. Clothes Rail

    Populating empty wardrobes has never been easier. This Marionette will add a clothes rail, complete with coat hangers and even some garments, to your wardrobe. 
    Features:
     
    Clothes Rail is placed at correct distance from top of shelf space Choose from a variety of rail types and rails supports (HETTICH) Coat hangers can be placed (with custom spacing) - option Random rotation of coat hangers - option Random deviation from set spacing - option Random garments can be placed - option Show shelf cage - option Supports copying and pasting between documents Automatic filtering for garments that are too long for the given space "Reset on Move" is OFF Integrates with interiorcad cabinets and can be configured from within. Will resize with parent box.  
    Known Issues:
     
    Garment lift height filtering is not currently possible as popup menus cannot receive dynamic content. Don't use a garment lift in a cabinet that cannot accommodate it. Kinda makes sense.  
    Some notes on how to use this Marionette:
    All symbols and miscellaneous geometry is contained within the Control Geometry of this Marionette. The clothes included are courtesy of archive3d.net and free to use in commercial or personal work. If you want to put this Marionette to good use, I recommend you purchase some proper high-quality CGI content from the usual sources on the web and replace the ones I have included. (The textures also need some love.)
    To replace the garments, right-click the Marionette and choose "Edit Control Geometry". Find the group with the garments. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNGROUP ANYTHING. Enter the group with the garments. In there, you will find all the clothes symbols. Start replacing at your heart's content. You're safe to do so as long as you stay within the group.
     
    Enjoy.

  9. Boxes

    Here's a couple of Marionettes I made some time ago to understand texturing. The boxes can be resized and the lid height and offset can be set.
    Features:
    Textures of lid will adjust with lid rim A printed logo will replace the label holder if space gets tight (Adjust or replace the texture to change the placeholder logo) dimensions are always outer dimensions, regardless of lid offset (box will shrink if lid offset is increased) Box and drum insertion reference is always front for convenient placement on a shelf Textures and label holder symbol are contained within the marionette script so it fully supports cut/copy/paste between documents "Reset on Move" is OFF Known Issues:
    Duplicating boxes is fast initially but adjusting parameters will reset the boxes to their default parameters. (It's a known bug with Marionette so keep your cool...) It takes some time until the first change of any parameter is executed after a box has been duplicated. Nothing I can do about that. It's just the way, Marionettes work. Subsequent changes will be carried out fast

  10. Change Multiple Values with Popup

    This object is a result of working with @TSG-Sim on a challenge where a popup was to control both the color of an object as well as text.
    The method behind this is to combine smaller lists into a larger list to easily distribute the values. I used a Point 2D node in this example, but you could use any other list handling that you would like.

  11. Marionette Faceted Facade

    This object will create 3D polys with random peaks to display a faceted facade.
     
    This object requires the installation of Python libraries Numpy and Scipy. If these do not already exist in [User Folder]/Python Externals, you will be prompted with a dialog to install them.

  12. Curved Ramp

    This Marionette object is a path-based ramp. The path is a bezier curve and can be reshaped by double-clicking on the object. The 3D ramp is built by lofting NURBS curves and the 2D text can be turned on or off in the Object Info palette.
     
    This ramp uses the new Valve node in Vectorworks 2018 which means it can't be exported back to 2017.

  13. Light Mesh Rame

    Hi, been playing with old networks and noticed that this can create a mesh frame for lights. Adjust the number of rings, verticals and the sizes of all.
    You could also leave the surface and make it a transparent material.

  14. Truss with parametric length

    This Example shows, hot to have a any (complex as you want) geometry with a parametric length (available by the yards). 
    The Geometry was not modeled and parameterized in the script. But this is the advantage which this example shows. So take every geometry (import files etc) and just "cut" the length you need. Thats how this script works. It cuts away from a maximal part length (input as symbol) to the length you need.
     
    You can make an own symbol and rename the symbol input of the script. The Symbol cross-section now is limited to one meter. You can edit the script and increase this if necessary.
     
    Or look at this, with this method, you can model frame and installation plate in your script. The "fill" you can make with the method of this example script.

  15. Label_From_Worksheet.vwx

    More powerful, than a database or text application.
    A Vectorworks integrated label-script-example with Marionette. The attached example shows how to import address data from a worksheet (could be other data and sources) and additionally places  symbol beside the address. The power of Vectorworks and Marionette allows us to put everything you like dynamically on that labels. As example sort by male and female names (if possibly :-) and generate a individual pictures. Just infinite possibilities.

  16. recessed showcase

    This showcase can be inserted in walls. It works fine but ... Textures are wild animals. When you change one sometimes it changes all the others.

    Last the OIP is messy because ordering is not yet sufficiently secure to use, specially if you start using the object in a professional file.

    Be careful, this is a Marionette object RECORD often.

  24. Parametric Books

    Features:
    Places books from a designated symbol folder in a box ("shelf") Eliminates books that are too tall or wide for the box Allows to randomize the sequence of placement within each book collection (symbol folder) Option to repeat the list to fill long shelves Six different types of random angles or all straight Offset from shelf edge (Random Max/Min) Allows for any number of stacks in-between standing books Number of books per stack (Random Max/Min) Offset and angles for stacked books (Random Max/Min) Option to have only stacks, no upright books  
    Known Issues:
    The gap between angled books and stacks is not correct. I'm running out of time :-). Maybe I'll fix that later. Choosing paperbacks will currently throw an error. The workaround is to set the height of the shelf to 2m minimum if you want that type of book.  
    IMPORTANT
    *** Configure your books using the Marionette instance provided in the document. Then, make a copy. Ungroup that copy to lock its values. Start over. This will speed up your workflow considerably and you won't have to wait for each Marionette instance to recompile ***
