About This File

Attached a vwx with nodes. Some of them already shared as separate files. Also the list is not complete, not perfect and has no warranty of being up to date. Also some nodes may be outdated, obsolet or buggy.


Take note:

1. I tried to track the nodes with an addition record format

2. Marionette Nodes are linked to a record format, this record format contains descreption and Other infos from to the node. 

3. Also this Record contains a rating of the node (internal rating for me) like is this node hard to make, will it be useful for many users or just for one special case etc.

4. The Record can be linked manually to a node and then the node's Data can be written by a script. Ration Infos logically has to be attached manually

5. On the document is a worksheet with all nodes listed

The Info below is originally from the nodes (included original misspelling etc :-)

@Marissa Farrell I think in this file are some very interesting nodes. Do you plan to deliver these nodes (or some of them) as default content in Vectorworks 2022?

I've attached a node to read the story of a object...would be nice to have this node in 2022, too.


Best regards, Marc

Hello, I noticed that the Custom Pulldown duplicates the lists entered, the more entries (clicks) are made in the fields. Can you program any line there so that it doesn't happen?



Response from the author:

I think your post should should better be placed in the comment section  than in the review section.

The List with custom Nodes ist from 2018. Actual there is a list with much more nodes, Nodes with bugfixes and deleted nodes (obsolete etc.).
I am not sure how to share this content. Sharing many nodes on one file, makes is hard to update one single node and leave all the rest untouched. On the other hand, posting every single node separately is too much work. 

However yes, the node you mentioned duplicates the popup values, which is a bug. You can change the Node's Code and replace the "def RunNode" Funktion by this code:


def RunNode(self):
	DialogName = self.Params.sDialog.value[0]
	title1 = self.Params.sTitle1.value[0]
	title2 = self.Params.sTitle2.value[0]
	title3 = self.Params.sTitle3.value[0]
	pop1 = self.Params.lPopup1.value
	pop2 = self.Params.lPopup2.value
	pop3 = self.Params.lPopup3.value
	width = self.Params.iWidth.value[0]

	numPopups = 3
	EnterDialog = 12255

	def Dialog_Handler(item, data):

		self.v1 = vs.GetItemText( self.dialog, 11 )
		self.v2 = vs.GetItemText( self.dialog, 12 )
		self.v3 = vs.GetItemText( self.dialog, 13 )

		if item == EnterDialog:
			for i in range(len(pop1)):
				vs.AddChoice( self.dialog, 11, pop1[i], i+1 )
			for i in range(len(pop2)):
				vs.AddChoice( self.dialog, 12, pop2[i], i+len(pop1)+1 )

			for i in range(len(pop3)):
				vs.AddChoice( self.dialog, 13, pop3[i], i+len(pop2)+1 )	

	def CreateMyDialog():		
		self.dialog = vs.CreateLayout( DialogName, 0, 'OK', 'Abbrechen' )
		dialog = self.dialog
		vs.CreateStaticText(dialog, 1, 'title1', width)
		vs.CreateStaticText(dialog, 2, 'title2', width)
		vs.CreateStaticText(dialog, 3, 'title3', width)

		vs.CreatePullDownMenu( dialog, 11, width )
		vs.CreatePullDownMenu( dialog, 12, width )
		vs.CreatePullDownMenu( dialog, 13, width )

		vs.SetFirstLayoutItem( dialog, 1 )
		vs.SetBelowItem( dialog, 1, 11, 0, 0 )
		vs.SetBelowItem( dialog, 11, 2, 0, 0 )
		vs.SetBelowItem( dialog, 2, 12, 0, 0 )
		vs.SetBelowItem( dialog, 12, 3, 0, 0 )
		vs.SetBelowItem( dialog, 3, 13, 0, 0 )

		vs.RunLayoutDialog(dialog, Dialog_Handler )


	self.Params.sPopup1.value = self.v1
	self.Params.sPopup2.value = self.v2
	self.Params.sPopup3.value = self.v3
