  1. Hello Small tip for vw2017 and maybe for vw2016 users I found that vw2017 use old(2015) api of SketchUP. - slapi.dll - 15.3.331, Windows OS version. need SketchupAPI.dll(x64) from sketchUp 2016 sdk(for example i have SDK_Win_16-0-19911), copy to root of vw2017(6) and rename-replace slapi.dll - so you will able to load skp files from sketchup 2016(older too). sketchUp 2016 sdk can be downloaded from developer section of sketchup site

    Hi Thanks for new looking forum!
  6. Hello Can VectorWorks make such grooves at side of wall joining? I will to make laser cut toy models.
  7. Hello Can i ask such question - how do you create roofs for glass houses? For example i understand we can use curtain wall for walls. What about roofs?

    Dialogs - Predefined

    Yeah, i got several problems with instancing of qt[app] declaration. I got several tests with normal behavior before marionette definition > outside of this class. Today, i only have view to use inside of normal script's body, not marionette

    importing obj file missing textures

    I see you have formz, maybe reduce meshes > reduce function for mesh or any similar tools for macOS

    importing obj file missing textures

    Hello Have *.mtl file with that obj? mtl store paths to textures and info about materials, you can easy edit to make own paths to textures yes, a few editors/converters has option to in-built mat-info to obj file

    Useful Geometry

    Hello Sarah It's very useful. Thank you Can post such example? I will post code which inside in any dummy node(not wrapper) and somebody can to put it into node code(for example one of points category nodes) + also if you install scipy, numpy(python extesions) Code based at such code and frensel functions of scipy ''' Based at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13308573/scipy-what-are-the-arguments-in-scipy-special-fresnelx-out1-out2 ''' @Marionette.NodeDefinition class Params(metaclass = Marionette.OrderedClass): this = Marionette.Node('Frensel Points') this.SetDescription('Create scipy.frensel Points') npts = Marionette.OIPControl( 'Number of points', Marionette.WidgetType.Int, 100) npts.SetDescription('Number of points at curve') curlsn = Marionette.OIPControl( 'Number of curls', Marionette.WidgetType.Int, 3) curlsn.SetDescription('Number of curls') sca = Marionette.OIPControl( 'Scale', Marionette.WidgetType.Bool, False) sca.SetDescription('Scaled version') scan = Marionette.OIPControl( 'Scale', Marionette.WidgetType.Int, 1) scan.SetDescription('Scale of curve') pt = Marionette.PortOut() pt.SetDescription('Frensel Points on the xy plane') def RunNode(self): import numpy as np from scipy.special import fresnel num = self.Params.npts.value curl = self.Params.curlsn.value sca = self.Params.sca.value scalen = self.Params.scan.value t = np.linspace(-curl, curl, num, endpoint=True) ss, cc = fresnel(t / np.sqrt(np.pi / 2)) scaled_ss = np.sqrt(np.pi / 2) * ss scaled_cc = np.sqrt(np.pi / 2) * cc if sca: fpts = [] for i in range(num): fpts.append((scaled_ss[i]*scalen, scaled_cc[i]*scalen, 0.0)) self.Params.pt.value = fpts else: fpts = [] for i in range(num): fpts.append((ss[i], cc[i], 0.0)) self.Params.pt.value = fpts

    Marionette tool

    yes, but let's back to vw and Marionette - it's very helpful addition. I read somewhere over forum, that why only python drives code. Ok, if we look at net, we can find many additional packages and extensions for python and can extend it: numpy and scipy -> i used scipy in GIS(ArcGIS) and Road design(used in topomatic robur); numpy - arrays for volumes... color analysis extensions ... for design, spotlight maybe and etc. and by nodes we can create scenario of project or part of project -> like mind map

    Marionette tool

    no-no, it's not only character tool, mostly vfx/fx package(i used it as destruction tool when had freelance work in 2010-2011 years). I mean it uses node-based editor to create any kind of tools for it, procedural cities, windows and etc.

    Marionette tool

    I started to read manual -> Visual Scripting and video > in this post also i have experience with: dynamo for revit mcg for 3dsmax xpresso for c4d houdini

    Marionette tool

    hello have you look at sub-forum of Marionette, especially resource share? This tool is in-built simplified tool for creation of scripted "plug-ins" http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/Marionette_Basics
  19. Hello I can not find sdk 2016 and documentation for it. or it's still polishing? I find several pages at dev.wiki, post in vis.script sub-forum and VS:Vectorworks 2016 - New Functions

    Rob I expand it 1. human-made curve we named - mypath 2. add that alias to options in name node. script will begin to find target object with such alias

    Hello I'm not sure about custom ui, take a look at Object Info Palette

    Introduction to Marionette

    Thank you and dev.team Also i found new info about “Marionette” at vw developer wiki pages. if somebody missed it, check out links as tech.info: Marionette Basics The Marionette Node Parametric Object
  23. Ilay


    yes, name is "mypath" alias in data name of poly-line and scatter by duplicating of circles (i forgot to filtered number of points to duplicate-node) i made such
  24. Woohoo I missed this requested feature >> xmb sampler with embree and sa's arnold-, pixar-like renderer to arch.viz! cool!!!
  25. Thank you for link Great, for that was simplified: I mean - not only c++(capi)
