About This File

This is a Marionette Object that downloads weather data from the internet based on the address/location you enter into the OIP. The data this graphic shows the peak one hour rainfall and the total monthly rainfall per month. You must have a valid internet connection to use this MO.

What's New in Version 3.0.0   See changelog


Hello all, I have uploaded a new version of the precipitation chart that works in Vectorworks 2023 sp1 or later. I have removed the older version, as this tool did not work in recent versions of Vectorworks. Unfortunately, the new precipitation chart cannot be exported to prior versions because it has significant new functionality that was implemented in Vectorworks 2023.

This looks very interesting.

Unfortunately, I get an error when I tried to use it (as the psychrometric one).

Others, like the sun path, the wind rose and the temperature ones works well and are awesome.


Thanks !

@GatRed have you tried other locations near where you are trying? That error pops up when there is no data coming through. Does the error show up every time you try to edit the chart or only the first time?

As @GatRed noted in their review, It should be noted in the Marionette description this network only works for the U.S., since it seems like it is using the Surface Weather Observation Station List (ASOS) from the FAA as the data source.

I tried with Sydney, Paris and Berlin with an error. 
For New York and Washington it was ok.

But I don’t have project in the US.

That is very odd. I tried Paris as well, you are right, no data shows up in the graph, but data does exist and is downloaded, so it SHOULD show up in the graph. I will have to research why.
