  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Flat showcase

    Second type of showcase
    Used to put objects with a flat cover on top. By changing the width of the wood you are able to put labels behind the glass.
    This version does not include recessed lights places bellow the wood.

  11. Plinth showcase

    This object is made to simplify life of designers. You can change all the values and see the result immediately, leading to the perfect size against the shown art piece.

    If anyone has an idea to put the textures parameters in the texture OIP…

  13. 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 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 won't fix it 🙂  
    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 ***

  16. Swimming Pool by Marionette

    Hi attached are a few different ways to do pools. The last 2 are freeform in plan. One has a shape and the other control geometry. With the control geometry its on a separate class, if its on it shows upside down. will need to fix. But gives you ideas how to create these. If you lose the textures just reset them. Also adjusted the oval node similar to the Rectangle so you can select the centre easily.

  18. Quick House Models

    In the attached file there is a network that creates a domestic house with the roofs, walls, slab and gutters all from one polygon.
    Could be good for roughing up concept models for a village.

    Play with the polygons and make your own shapes. You can alter the roof pitch, overhangs and wall and slab styles.

    Import a wall or slab style into your resource browser and copy to the appropriate name node.

    Enjoy.

  19. Threaded Bolt

    Attached is a Marionette Object of a threaded bolt, still in progress.

    Current "NumThreads" must be >0 and <=10, or you will get a failure. This will be fixed (and later removed and replaced with overall length). Fractional values should work.

    There is much more ahead on this, but I figured sharing now and allowing the community to play with it/improve on it could be beneficial.

    I will update the variables as I go to follow standard dimensioning of threaded objects, I just haven't gotten around to the math in some areas (such as major diameter, etc.)

    It will also later include a head, since that's obviously not there

  20. Amazing Curtain Walls

    Have posted a video about the office building concept created by just 5 polygons and described how the network works.

    So simple, this is where Marionette comes into its own for me anyways.

  22. Simple House

    Attached is a simple house showing how to use a few marionette objects that have sped up my workflow, Work in progress so hope to create more things to help me.

    With baseboards etc you don't have to worry about the end cap so much so it can stay as anything. Just remember if the object disappears its probably that you just spelt the symbol name wrong so just retype the name in the OIP and it should appear.

    Hope it helps you.

  23. Parametric Door Hook

    I've recently purchased a 3D printer (I'll share more details with anyone who asks ) and decided that it would be fun and gratifying to begin modeling objects using Marionette with the intention of printing them.

    My first share is this parametric door hook. Although simple, it was a great drawing project (I actually took much longer on this than I thought I originally would...). Once I get around to printing one (or four) out, I'll happily share the results!

    If there are any questions on the best practices for using Marionette to model for 3D printing, I would love to be a resource for you. I'd also love suggestions as to what other objects might be fun to model for print!

  24. Parametric Button

    A parametric button - again, simple.

    Please let me know if you run into any issues while changing parameters in 3D - there's an inconsistency I'm trying to track down.

    Not shown in image - you can choose the number of holes to thread through.
