Marionette - Objects

78 files

  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  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.

  16. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!

  21. Parametric Metal Framework Cabinet

    A Text-Script based Marionette Object. 

    Technical Info:
    About 30 Options in the Object Info palette. And many if then combinations, which results in drawing/not drawing a part of the cabinet. I did this first with a graphical script network. But there was no possibility to NOT execute part of a graphical script because of an option. 

    It is just possible to execute/draw everything and then delete objects. Which results in a disadvantage of speed. So I decided to write code instead. Anyway, this is also something, marionette can be used for.
