  1. Hello On my computer, when I use the radio button, strange things append. When I enter the script to change Option 1 into another name, even changing one letter of the script, the popup changes into a one mode with all the texts on the same line. You can try by editing the script, deselect and reselect the node. This button works perfectly in 2021, the scripts are alike… Any idea?
  2. Hello Thank you for the answer. How evident and simple it is when you look at the solution.... and you know how to script nodes. My next step is to find a way to give name to objects directly from an excel file, or with a marionette script..
  3. Hello My goal is to count symbols or objects in a specific space and automatically show them in a label. I started remembering the webinar where you put points in a poly. First easy step, I want to make a network where a symbol is or not in a poly (easier I think than try with space) So, I draw an object and name it AA. I convert into a Symbol named AA-1 I draw a poly and name it. Built a network beginning by giving a name (bottom of the OIP) to a symbol and get the symbol location, get x,y convert into a point and use the intopoly node with the poly name. This works if I give a name to the symbol like BB-1 and I have the true or false value. This is of no help because if I have to rename each object it’s useless. So I tried to use the symbol name AA-1, but this returns nothing. If I use the object name it’s the same. I know there must be a way because you can count symbols in the sheets, but not in a specific space and show it in a label. Any idea? In the attached file the original webinar, the network that works with the object and a strange network (with the move node) that changes the place of the rectangle without changing its selection place. In this case I am using the name of the object in the symbol! into poly v2021.vwx
  4. THANK YOU it works and I improved my knoledge about variables. 😞 I didn't see the missing ( The next step is to transform this script in a Marionette node. "convert 2d points to 3d" Crazy the amount of received plans where you have to convert 2d points to place them at the right high.
  5. Thank you for the script No pb to insert in in a plug in but… I am getting strange result. First it erases all the other objects in the file (only one layer). I assume the h is valid for the other objects and not only the locus. Second it introduces in the center (0,0) new 3d points as many as the number of deleted objects and last, all the locus are not converted. Trying on my side based on your script...
  6. Thanks for the method So this morning I tried (with my little knowledge) by using the marionette nodes and their scripts. On my test file I put 4 points and used object by criteria node, set selection, get location. I made lists to see the result and use "is locus" to find out that 17 is 2d and 9 is 3d objType = vs.GetTypeN(h) b = ((objType == 17) or (objType == 9)). In the marionette script if I use the delete node, I can remove all my 2d point (locus) but how do I insert the 3d points ?
  7. Hello Everything is in the title I am trying to make a script converting selected 2D points in 3D points. I tried to find a vs script that could do it but... :-(( As I know very little in scripting help is needed Thanks in advance
  8. Now we have another subject! I edited both nodes from the script and beside the “locker” they are alike. You have another group node with more lines. If you start from the original file and run the network the 19 is working and not the 20. By deleting the first 2 lines in the 20 the network works on my version of 2020 SP3/ build 537701 French version. Marionette mystery… A copy of the scripts bellow
  9. Hello I have tried to understand the differences between the scripts. In the node “group” at the end the only one is the beginning: #COMMAND;READONLYREFFILE;[VWLibDef]/Operations\Group.py; #Modified April 2017 If you take this out of the script the node works perfectly fine. Don’t ask me why ??? And you get the same result as in 2019 What is weird is that this text is only a reference about the node and shouldn’t interfere in the node process.
  10. hello I only tried: wraped the script, transform into object and... perfect result! can't reproduce the magic disappearance
  11. Version 1.1.0


    This arch is fully changeable from gothic to tunnel. You can decide the amount of blocks the high and the width. By playing in the OIP strange structures can easily be made.

    Updating Node

    when the 2018 is released I will try my "old" scripts and see how they convert. Then if I have broken network I'll post again

    Updating Node

    hello Should I be afraid to switch to 2018 when it's release in France? Some nodes where not changed in the french last sp version. Being, I think, one of the only one using (i try) Marionette in France should I start " flippin' like flag on a pole" or let the good times roll?
  14. Very easy when you know where to search, took me a while!
  15. or you can use the data part of the OIP. A long time ago (April 2016) with Marissa's help I made this script. Now not only the names appear but I can use the figures in the data base. The post was name 'Data base and OIP' rail script.vwx
  16. hello Maybe it’s because of the bug inside the covert to poly node see convert to polygon doesn't work in marionette object
  17. from what I understand DomC node is based on a vs moving a 3D object and Marissa on a vs in 2D am I correct?
  18. @Marissa I would love to have a list and a file with all the debugged nodes from 2016 and on. I must be one of the only French trying to work with marionette, so I am not surprise my SP4 version could be left with old nodes. What I intend to do is to check the scripts (yes one by one and line by line) that have been modified between the French and the American versions and send the package to Cesyam for them to make a patch to our sp4. my goal, like most of the users, is to be able to produce from marionette so the work is easier.
  19. When you wrap the script the 2 rotation nodes are left behind but in fact if you change the rotation parameter in the OIP it works normally. Now once the script is wrapped, if you delete the nodes it still works. Willofmaine have invented the ghost nodes! In my case (French version) that’s what I get. What about you with your version? To answer your question yes when moving the 2 nodes it wraps ok moving only the top one no changes moving the bottom one wraps ok
  20. no use found the file in the other post
  21. I went through your scripts 14 and 15 In 14 I get an error message as soon as I want to change a value in the OIP I converted in centimeters and tried again from the script and it worked. Then I changed the texture to attribute. This helps but will not change the fact that when you wrap the rotation node wouldn’t follow the fist time (see the next post). Then VW crashed. Started again and only changed the values in the script, this is working. I haven’t understood the use of the first rectangle (in pink) but this is just a matter of curiosity. Going to 15 this is totally insane. I have tried many options from center true to taking out the second knob. I get funny situations but I cannot fin a reason why when you apply you option to the first knob then the cabinet door flies to the its high and the knob is at the right place. The same with the rotation the unique knob rotates around the center but with two knobs it works. I thought it could come from the fact that when you center in x the knobs (going to true in the OIP) in fact you have 2 knobs at the same place, but then you don’t need to take out the knob later so there is no reason from my point of view, it would affect the rest of the script. Hope someone can find why…
  22. can you post the vw file so I can try on my computer ?
  23. Back in the discussion Another way to operate is to go back to vw use of symbols. I’ll try to make myself understandable. First I build my object from the symbols in 2 or 3D and the marionette script, including the scale part (see earlier in the post). Second I duplicate the object and create a symbol of the object. Then I have the choice, or I use the object (copy paste etc…) and it becomes easy to change its size as a unique object, or I decide I will need to change all the objects so I draw with my symbol and edit it if necessary using then the scale function of the script. In that case all the objects are changing. Again for me marionette is a tool like all the others, sometime it’s faster to draw a rectangle than to use marionette sometime not. At the end what count’s is the gain of productivity (and the pleasure of achieving scripts!).
  24. here is the way I scale symbols in marionette Take a look at the script "frame3" once the popup is changed to a group you can scale in x or y even z if you change for a 3D point. What is nice is the fact that using the same symbol you can have objects with different sizes frame 3.vwx
