  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  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.

  14. Items on Shelves

    Hi, This simple network places items from a selection of symbols onto shelving. You can decide on the shelf width and depth and the item numbers will adjust to suit. The idea is to move the objects to suit your shelving then select different items from the dropdown to get you desired effect. Currently to get a more random looking front when you are happy with the look just explode a few and delete a few items to make it look more real.  Looking at ways to make the random placement automatic, will see how it goes.
     
    You can make your own folders, but you will need to change the script at the beginning to get it to work.
     
    Any questions just ask.
     
    Work in Progress.
     
    Thinking so far in relation to different categories of stock you could create duplicates with symbol folders and Marionette Objects of different stock and use whichever is appropriate.

  18. Stair Object

    This file contains a simple stair object to show that Marionette can be a solution to an over-complicated problem. Marionette will allow you to generate your own plug-in objects to give the user as much or as little control over the object as you would like. I hope to expand upon this object in the future to show more opportunities for control over a stair object - both simple and complicated.

  20. Marionette Triangulation

    A recent discussion with a coworker prompted the idea of populating a source shape with random triangulations - this is what has evolved.
     
    Notes:
    These objects require the Python libraries NumPy and SciPy to be installed to your computer. A prompt will appear when you modify any of the objects.
    These libraries will be installed to your User Library > Python Externals. It is 100% okay to delete these libraries at any time, the only thing that will happen is that networks that rely on those libraries will require you to download them again.

  21. Vertical Blinds

    This Marionette Network generates vertical blinds.
    Nearly every part of the blinds can be modified by the parameters.
     
    Usage comments:
    - Put the Symbol 'Vertical Blind' into your drawing.
    - Now costumize it to your needs with the parameters in the object info palette:
     
    Total Length, Slat Height, Slat Width, Slat Angle and more
    (A Video will follow)
     
    - Finally you can define textures for parts of the slat by the generated classes:
     
    VerticalBlind-Slat
    VerticalBlind-Slat_Backing
    VerticalBlind-Rope
    VerticalBlind-Fixture
    VerticalBlind-String
    VerticalBlind-Beads
     
    Thanks to Dom for the PutByRefNode which made it a lot more easy.

  22. Voronoi Familiar Colorful Cubes

    This Marionette network uses a custom node, which implemented the pixel-based try and error code (I think there is no other way to create voronoi, is it?) from here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosetta_Code
     
    Instead of Pixels it uses rectangles which were extruded in random height (ground height is different in every voronoi cell). And different full spectrum random colours (which would look much better with adapted colour design).
     
    Carefull playing around with values. Do not enter to high or to low values. Creating 843'135'013 extrudes, could take a while :-)

  23. Skylight Parametric Object

    This Vectorworks file has a couple of variants of skylight object that are created with Marionette. The Marionette scripts for the skylights can be examined simply by double-clicking on the skylights themselves. This was my first attempt at using Marionette for parametric objects and I explored several topics:
     
    1. The two skylight objects are different because one uses a simple set of parameters (height, width, curb height) to set the geometry, while the other allows you to pick from a predefined "catalog choice" on the Object Info palette. There is a Marionette node inside the second one that is called "Configurator' that takes advantage of a very useful data structure in Python called a "dictionary". For those of you interested in Python scripting, this is worth a look.
     
    2. There are wrapper nodes inside the skylight objects called "Frame Profile" and "Curb Profile". These are essentially nested parametric shapes. Select either of these nodes and you will see a number of parameters on the OI palette. Double-click either of these nodes and you will see their internal scripts as well as a picture describing what the parameters mean. (You can paste anything you want into wrapper nodes as informal documentation.)
     
    3. These objects write and maintain proper IFC data, including height and width, with every reset.
