  4. Marionette Translate Character to Geometry

    A Marionette PlugIn, that collects a custom drawing (font character, picture whatever) and refer it to a regular font character. 
    This "Font" is placed into the control geometry container. Also we could just use a blue symbol.
     
    The Heart of the script is a custom node "create font dict" which manage collecting the control geometry. Also it returns a dictionary sequence data type. A dictionary is very useful if you want to have pairs of data. In this case a character and a drawing group with informations forms a pair. 
     
    Sure, the script could be improved by several things (multi-line, alignment, page based etc. )  But I think it is very useful to have that plug in. Have fun with it. Maybe you can share your own fonts and your wonderful handwriting here. Thanks.
     
    Usecases:
    1. Handwriting Font
    2. Vectorfont (ability to use sketch view)
    3. For Milling Machines
    4. Fast inserting of object sequences
    5. ...
     
    Update v2019
    1. Script Crashed if input Geometry was None (Integrated a script blocker and an Alert Dialog )
    2. Input Dict was always None, because use of an outdated Script command (vs.GetType() instead vs.GetTypeN()). Issue in many other scripts. One of the very rare incompatibilites of Script commands the past Years.

  9. Dovetail Detail

    Features:
    Creates a two-dimensional dovetail detail using the standard method for dovetail joints. Available in German and English. Both objects inside the file.  
    Known Issues:
    Go easy on the sliders! I haven't had the time to build in the appropriate safety-nets. Lousy bit of Marionetteering on my part here but there have been a few requests from local users and it works pretty well if you don't overdo it with the dimensions.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. Marionette Swivel CB

    Hey All,
     
    I've been trying to learn a bit more about Marionette scripting. I made this adjustable swivel cheesborough as one of my 1st exercises. You can rotate each half of the symbol with 2 sliders in the OIP. It is a symbol in the resource browser, and converts into a Marionette object upon insertion.
     
    Hopefully you all find it useful!

  16. 3D Window with 2D content, wall hole and stone curb

    Example of a 2D/3D Marionette PIO with a Custom Wall hole.
    The Geometry of the Window and the embrasure is based on a symbol. Also the 2D Drawing is based on a symbol. The Geometry is reshaped by the 2D and 3D Reshape node. So the Script itself is relatively slim.
     
    Replace the Geometry with everything else you can draw. Generic solids are recommended. Also you could script some additional geometry for window division while frame is parametrized by reshape node.
     
    This will go on. It took about 2 hours to draw the geometry and 2 hours to parametrize it. Impressive, how quick we can produce PIOs with Marionette based on that workflow.

  18. 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.

  20. 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!

  23. 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.

  24. 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.
