    Solved it, thanks! You pointed in the right direction: [the scaling factor] to the power of [a list of values from 0-max] gives the perfect list.

    @Stephan Moenninghoff Thanks for the code. However, I am looking for an expression that gives me size increments that are NOT constant. The have to gradually become less and less, never reaching zero. Therefore, I apply the scaling factor to each step. The question is really, how do I express that in Marionette? INPUTS: - Start value - Number of steps - Scaling factor (i.e. 92% of previous list item) OUTPUT: Decreasing or increasing list of values

    But only for 2D objects, right? So, mirror all paths before extrusion? And yes, I know the problem - and that's what I also want to solve. The ordered-list-node I use for generating the list of sizes does not relate to the input for number of boxes, so right now after changing the input, I would have to also make new nodes and connecting to make the sequence. Repeat and sequence. Will try that..

    Gotcha. But which node would you use for mirroring them?

    Vortex box

    Hi all, I'm trying to generate an object to be produced IRL, inspired by the object in the reference image. But I want only a specified number of steps of framed boxes, until the inner box, which is a solid, as seen in the other image. I want to be able to tweak the parameters, so I can find the right scaling factor and rotation. The parameters I want to control are: > Dimensions of biggest box > Total number of box repetitions. > End angle of the solid (smallest) box > The initial size of the profile for the frame boxes (which is also scaled down for each box in the ref image - but could be a fixed value in stead) So far, I've built a script that makes solid cubes, scales and rotates them. Two questions: > I need a way to generate the frame boxes in stead of solid cubes. So I can actually see the framed boxes with the chosen profile size. This is my biggest struggle.. > And for versatility, a better way to generate the list of scaling values for the boxes. As is, I have to populate the list myself. Any suggestions for other ways to better build a script like this is great. Appreciate any help..! Palle Marionette Kais object.vwx

    Spotlight Tool Set does not show

    Thanks for the fast reply - will try that later!
  7. I'm working in Designer, and when switching to the Spotlight workspace, the tool set palette is not visible. When I turn it on, it shows as an empty gray rectangle. I can move it around, but not access any tools or dock it. When I switch to other workspaces, I do not have the same problem - the tool sets are there, and working. Is this something I can fix myself? Best, Palle
