About This File

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 ***
