Marionette - Objects

75 files

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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!

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Swimming Pools

    Adjust dimensions as needed.
    Right click and edit the control geometry to change the shape of the pool.
    Draw a new polygon and delete the old one will also work.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  21. Two NURBS Sections to Loft

    These are two NURBS surfaces used as sections for Loft construction.  The result should look like an 90 degree elbow, with circular cross section at one end and an elongated oval of equal width as the diameter of the circle.

  23. 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.

  24. 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 :-)
