  1. The idea of this object is that it is a jumping off point. This was done in response to a user's request and covers the basic specs they were looking for. I am definitely open to improving the object but I also hope people will be inspired to update it themselves!
  2. I see what you mean. I am seeing the same issue when I try to import it into a new file as well. I am filing a bug. -Sarah
  3. Does it only disappear after importing it into your drawing? Can you manipulate it in the original file? Can you tell if all of the "parts" import into your file as well? What happens if you click the Update button in the OIP?
  4. I have uploaded a new version that works in 2021

    This is a path-based Marionette object that creates a stage. This is a little different from the Create Stage... command as it allows you to make the stage from any shape and to choose symbol-based profiles for the frame, bracing and legs. It also uses a leg pocket symbol. You can edit the existing symbols to customize this stage or you can create your own library of symbols to use.

    This is a Marionette object that uses several python libraries - Pillow, NumPy, and SciPy - to create a triangulated panel that takes its colors from the pixels of an image. The color for each triangle is the average RGB value for all the pixels that would fall within that shape if the picture and the panel were aligned. To create this object I used some nodes that @Marissa Farrell created, a couple from this file and one node from this file. As this Marionette object contains external libraries, you may see some prompts to download libraries the first time you make a change. Just click OK when prompted. Unfortunately, this object does not work on PC running Vectorworks 2020. It does however work on a PC running Vectorworks 2021. There are two files in this post, one with just the Marionette object and another that uses the Marionette object in an actual model.
  7. Each part of the scissor lift is a modeled symbol, so those symbols would have to be replaced by ones that are a different size. The way that the script works is that each symbol is named and and each symbol contains a named locus point where the next symbol in the sequence is attached.
  8. @Sebasrougs when you create your list of points to move your duplicates, you need to use the Mix2 node and select the Cross Reference mode in the dropdown. You need to create XYZ coordinates of every possible combination.
  9. Hi @KroVex - The wall height is separate from the story height in Vectorworks. This allows you to draw walls at a specific height that are NOT bound to specific stories, only Layer Wall Heights. If you draw walls that are story-bound, then the walls will adjust with the stories. Since the premise of this script is to create stories so that story-bound wall styles will work, I didn't make any changes to the Layer Wall Height.
  10. What you are talking about is the same idea as this file. This takes loci and nearby text taken from a survey and converts them to the Existing Tree PIO. It could be adapted to the Space object. Because the Space is a path-based object (each Space shape is potentially unique, based on a path), you would have to adjust the script a little.
  11. Most nodes new nodes will work in 2016 because they use pre-existing python functionality, but some nodes have Marionette-specific functionality, such as the Valve node, the Slider node, and the Chart nodes.
  12. Hello, You need to use the node "Get Font ID" between the String node and the iFontID port of the Set Char Properties node. When in doubt, check that the prefixes of the output and input ports match. (They won't always match because of generic prefixes like "item" and "list", but they can be helpful in these situations.)
  13. I am coming in a little late to this conversation but I created a network for Landmark users a while ago that sounds very similar to what you want. Now that you have gotten started, you may not need this, but it might still be a helpful resource.
  14. Once you move the control points of a Marionette object, they will stay that way. What I would recommend is naming the Control Point node so it's values will appear in the OIP of the Marionette object. You can manually reset them there if you need to.
