    Classes won't change in cabinet

    Looking deeper - it looks like you aren't setting your objects to use the class fill color. I've updated your network to do so using the "Set Fill Color by Class" node. Please let me know if you have any questions! Parametric cabinet_MFarrell.vwx

    Classes won't change in cabinet

    For your class settings, do you have "Use at Creation" set?

    Installing Python Image Library in Marionette 2018

    Thanks for confirming! I'll get it filed in our bug tracking system and see if we can get a fix.

    Installing Python Image Library in Marionette 2018

    We have a command in Marionette that will install Python libraries from a link to a .whl file. I have a network in the Marionette downloads that should install PIL to your Vectorworks Python. In this network, the command is contained in the pink nodes. It can be found here: However, I am having a hard time getting any libraries to download at this moment on my Mac machine. Please let me know if you are successful. All you need to do is run the network and say yes when it asks if you would like to download. Python libraries are installed to your user folder in the Python Externals folder. I should note that if this is not successful, Vectorworks may crash. Please have any other open files saved, or be sure to close them.

    Update on move

    It's possible to make it as either a Marionette script or a Python script. In either case, it can be added to your workspace as a menu command.

    Update on move

    Hi Nico, If my memory serves me correctly, the command "Reset All Plug-Ins" will work with Marionette objects. This command can be found in Tools > Utilities. Downside is if you have many other plug-in objects in your document, it will take a long time because it resets them all. It is possible to create a menu command that will only update Marionette Objects if you need. Please let me know if you want to go down that route. Marissa

    Revolve with rail & Ungroup

    Menu commands do not result in a group.

    Get IFC Pset Value error ...

    It looks like this is the case when there's not a pSet value attached to the item you're querying. I can fix the node so you don't get an error, but it still means there's something wrong upstream in your network. getifcpsetvalue_MFarrell.vwx

    Converting Strings to Numbers

    If the string is composed of entirely numbers, you can run it through the "float" node. It's a little trickier if you have units in the string, though, and those would require special handling.
  10. vs.SetParent() will help you out with that.

    Workgroup Folder dissapeared

    This isn't true, but I'm glad that it's now working for you! I keep my Workgroup folder in my OneDrive account right at the root, so that naming convention is not necessary.

    Festoon / String Lights

    We've made holiday lights with Marionette, but so far nothing with a catenary (which I just had to look up...) though it shouldn't be hard to pull off.

    Symbol Node

    It's actually Patrick Winkler's! However, it was on the old techboard forums and I'm not on-site to get it from our old database. I'll definitely try to grab it and share on Monday.

    Symbol Node

    I think there's a custom one floating around on the forum somewhere, but you can modify the existing one by adding a Move call and moving it in the Z direction. I'll take a quick look to see if I can find the custom one.

    Extrude Along Path Node

    I've looked into this before, it looks like we don't have access to some of the calls we need in the Python API, unfortunately. I'll put in a request to expose them.
