  1. Standard Rooms

    This Script it made for users which have an Vectorworks Architecture but have not the core business to draw walls, slabs and roofs to make a presentation ambient for their designs. It helps to create room situations very fast and especially very easy. 

    1. Concept
    It pulls Symbols out of a Symbol folder which are Room-Presets. As Presets Rooms can exist, that have a rectangular shape and inner dimension of exact 2 meters. Slabs are supported also (No extrudes etc.) and roofs. Best Practice maybe is to keep existing presets and just change classes as example. If we are working with presets we can "save" a lot of parameters in the Object-Info-Palette which makes it faster and easier to use.

    2. Workflow
    Copy Symbolfolder and PlugIn in your project and you can use it immediately. If you want to change details you can ungroup (cmd/ctrl. U) the objects into Walls and slabs. So you are able to insert Windows, Doors or changing other Details.

    3. Known Limitations/Details
    - Rectangular Room presets only
    - Switch on/off ceiling with classes
    - Texturize by classes
    - Changing classes by editing preset Symbols and attach other classes/attributes
    - You can Mirror the Room to get left/right rooms

  4. Page Numbering

    This Document contains two Marionette PlugIns.
    Those PlugIns will simplify the workflow where we have more than one page on one sheet layer.
     
    1. Someone who uses your plans will have an advice if the document of the plan layout are complete.
    2. You can see which page you have to print directly on the layout without counting the pages
     
    This Marionettes supports Normal- and Landscape Format. Where pages are printed in a different order.
     
    Note:
    One Marionette (multi label) puts a label on every page and have to be inserted at the center (info-palette x0 y0 > please do not move).
    The other Marionette (single label) can be putted freely on the layout. It returns the page number of its center point.

    The Multi-Label Marionette, do not support uneven pages like 6.2/2.6

  5. Text to extruded object

    (Version FR plus bas)
    Turns any text into an extruded 3D symbol.
    You choose the text to be written, the font, the desired height of the symbol, the extrusion height, and the class in which the object should be created.
    The parameters of the class will be applied to the object.
    Everything is defined, via pop-ups.
    Very useful for creating house numbers, signs, store names, etc.
    File version: VW 2021
     
    --------------------
     
    Transforme n'importe quel texte en un symbole 3D.
    Vous choisissez le texte à écrire, la police, la hauteur désirée du symbole, la hauteur d'extrusion, et la classe dans laquelle l'objet doit être créé.
    Les paramètres de la classe seront appliqués à l'objet.
    Tout se défini, via des pop-up.
    Très pratique pour créer des numéros de maison, des enseignes, noms de magasin, etc.

  6. Extracting Geometry from PIOs or Symbols

    This Script is made to made separate objects from geometry which is nested in PlugIns or Symbols. Those could be uses for special usecases. The Script is criteria and class based. So it would be necessary the nested geomtry is in a seperate class.

    The Script uses 3 Criterias
    1. (left) The Input PIOs or Symbols by a free criteria
    2. (middle) The class which contains the required objects we want to extract
    3. (right) The Criteria for deleting the "debris" of the scripts. Which is selectable by class of the source PIOs/Symbols and deletes everything which are groups inside of this class (it deletes not the source objects, because those are symbols or PlugIns)

    This is also a possible method to ungroup things. Many ungrouping workflows do not work with Marionette, because the ungroup script command does not create handles to the resulting objects. But the group after ungrouping will be in the same class as the source objects. So using classes could be a workaround to catch the results by a second criteria. Not noble, but it works 🙂
     
    Use is on your own risk and in a copy of your project (like always)
    This Script is made for troubleshooting special requirements by resorting geometry for IFC Export.

  8. Wonderful Marionette Door

    More and more projects with a high level of individual control or a high level of geometry detail were created in 3D. The leading modelling and scripting capabilities keeps Vectorworks the best choice for BIM models. We have the best tool to make more than just the standard. 

    This Example shows how to parameterize a "hand design" Geometry of a beautiful Door.

  9. Marionette Object shows Values from an xls

    This Example shows a Marionette Object, which contains a Vectorworks Worksheet.
    By clicking "Update" Button in the OIP, the Marionette pulls automatically the new values out of the linked xls sheet. 

    Short Manual:
    1. Import first The Worksheet in Vectorworks 2021
    2. Create a blue symbol (insert as group) that contains the worksheet
    3. Fill out Worksheet Name, Symbol Name, and File Path (Pick File Node)

    Known Limitations:
    - I see it as a fun-gadget
    - It will not enhance the VW Worksheet if new rows are added in the linked xls. 
    - It will not make the VW Worksheet smaller if rows are deleted from the linked xls.
    - It is based on the import xls from 2021 and it will update just values. No Format etc. will be updated.

  10. Custom Stage

    This is a path-based Marionette object that creates a stage. This is a little different from the Create Stage... command as it allows you to make the stage from any shape and to choose symbol-based profiles for the frame, bracing and legs. It also uses a leg pocket symbol. You can edit the existing symbols to customize this stage or you can create your own library of symbols to use.

  11. Image-Based Triangulated Panel

    This is a Marionette object that uses several python libraries - Pillow, NumPy, and SciPy - to create a triangulated panel that takes its colors from the pixels of an image.
    The color for each triangle is the average RGB value for all the pixels that would fall within that shape if the picture and the panel were aligned.
     
    To create this object I used some nodes that @Marissa Farrell created, a couple from this file and one node from this file.
     
    As this Marionette object contains external libraries, you may see some prompts to download libraries the first time you make a change. Just click OK when prompted. Unfortunately, this object does not work on PC running Vectorworks 2020. It does however work on a PC running Vectorworks 2021. 
     
    There are two files in this post, one with just the Marionette object and another that uses the Marionette object in an actual model.

    Dieses Marionette Objekt ermöglicht die lagerichtige Ausrichtung von Symbolen an beliebigen 3d Punkten auf beliebigen Kugeloberflächen.
    Die 3d Symbole sollten dafür liegend (auf der x-Achse) erzeugt werden.
    Oder vorher mit der "Rotation Node" durch einen weitere Rotation um 90° um die Y-Achse gedreht werden 
     
    The Marionette object enables symbols to be aligned in the correct position at any 3d point on any spherical surface.
    The 3d symbols should be generated horizontally (on the x-axis).
    Or previously rotated 90 ° around the Y axis with the "rotation node"

  14. Multi- story buildings

    This network creates Walls and slabs on multiple heights. The result is not a finished BIM model, but is useful to generate fast conceptual multi story buildings, for example in a design phase, a master plan or an environment model.
    Special thanks to Alan W., I used his "Quick house models" script as a base for this one.

  17. Festoon Strings

    This is a Marionette object that creates an array of festoon strings. The Marionette object has four control points (one for each corner) that allow you to place each corner at a specific location and height. You can adjust the number of strings, the number of arcs in the strings, and the overall depth of the arc. The objects arrayed along the festoon strings are symbols so you can use the ones provided or create your own. The symbols provided have glow or light objects in them, so they can be used in renderings.

  18. Gravity Wall

    This Marionette object creates a Gravity Wall based off of a folder of symbols and a poly line. The poly line is the path of the Marionette object - to edit the poly line, right-click on the object and choose “Edit Control Geometry.” Within the Object Info palette (OIP) of the Marionette object, you can set the overall wall height, the angle at which the wall is slanted, and the pattern of the different symbols that will make up the wall. You can also offset this pattern on each row.
    It’s important that the only symbols in the referenced folder be ones that you wish to use as blocks in the wall, and that each block symbol should have the same Z height - if the blocks are different heights, the wall will not be able to accommodate them.
    In this file, there is also a network form of the script. This functions in a similar way to the Marionette object, except it creates a wall based off of a referenced poly line (a poly line that already exists in the document) instead of control geometry. To reference a poly line, give that poly a name in the Name field in the OIP and then reference that same name in the network.

  23. Graphic Panel

    This is a path-based MariObject that creates a panel with image graphics. Can be used as a wall hanging, etc. The boundary can be any shape. The object scales an image resource to fit the control geometry. Also, it attaches a record that reports on area, overall height and width, etc.
     
    NOTE: this is all standard Marionette nodes, but uses a Fill node that is not standard (at least until next service pack). I found some bugs in the script of that node and we've got them in the buglist.
