    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.

    Radio Button

    You didn't name the Real node '1'. Rename this node from '1' to 'one'

    Radio Button

    Hey Alan, So the issue isn't with your Radio Button node, the problem is you named that other input node '1' We can't have '1' as a name for a node, if you change that to 'one' the network will work.

    Symbol on Seating

    Hey Alan, That's a shortcoming with our String node. I've edited it in this file to not concatenate them. I also used a Mix2 node set to Cycle to shuffle things around a bit. I hope this helps! Seating_Test_On_Poly_001_v2018_MFarrell.vwx

    Convert int to a string

    Hey Alan, use the orange String node (str) Hope this helps

    Rotate 3D on Layer Plane 2D Polygons

    @NeonClear Hi! You're going to want to use Set Entity Matrix instead of Set 3D Rotation with an input of (90,0,0) I've attached a revised file. Hope this helps! Marissa layerplanepoly_MFarrell.vwx

    Marionette script needs to be referenced

    I'm not sure we currently support this workflow, though I wouldn't consider it a bug. I'll put a note into our bug tracking system.

    Marionette script needs to be referenced

    Let me see if I understand this. You are referencing the symbols and not placing a new instance of the symbol/Marionette object in the document? I don't understand what you mean about 'the script will not update'?

    Marionette script needs to be referenced

    I haven't tested this thoroughly, but you may be able to make the object a Red Symbol; when that's placed it will still allow you to change the Marionette Object. The only thing is that it still wouldn't update your instances in other existing files if you update the script for it, but I can't think of any object that does.

    Uploading files fail

    I'm actually just an early bird I'm usually here about an hour or more before everyone else starts showing up.

    Uploading files fail

    Hi Alan, I'm seeing the same. I don't believe Jim is in yet, but I'll make sure he knows about this. Thanks!

    Add Solids with Marionette

    There's a possibility we could add a checkbox later to the node to allow a user to decide if ALL objects will be added together, but we will likely leave the basic operation of this node alone. I'll look into some options on how to simplify the process. Thanks for your input!

    Add Solids with Marionette

    Although not ideal, one way you can do this is to use the Pop Front node and wire the Item port to hObj1 and the rest of the list to hObj2 (screenshot below) How the Solid Boolean node works is that the first port is the "blank" and the second port is the "tool." The node will cross reference these lists, as you've noticed, to create as many combinations as possible. If only one item is fed into the first port, then the objects will all be added to/subtracted from/intersected with that first "blank" item.

    Auto-Hybrid selection

    I've got you covered. VB-149262 It's very much likely due to the rotated plan and how snapping and picking works when it's rotated. We've seen issues with other objects before, this must have just slipped through the cracks. Thanks, guys!

    Boolean tick for further inputs

    Not at this time, no. This limitation is because we don't have a way to dynamically edit the OIP based on a change to the input, the OIP is populated/refreshed only when a node script is opened/closed or run.
  16. This happens because when you use Push/Pull it's actually creating a new object, technically. I can't say as to whether or not it's supposed to do that by design, but I'll report a bug and see how it goes.

    Set Fill to None

    Yes, that would be the better solution. I'm Not at a computer right now so I was just throwing out a quick method.
  18. Marissa Farrell

    Set Fill to None

    If you use the attributes node, whatever the attributes OF the attributes node are will be passed to the input object. So set the attributes node fill to none and you should be good to go.

    Offset Poly - Close Open Curves Option

    I think this one should work. I'm going to submit a bug against the OffsetPolyClosed function to take units into account. Let me know if you run into any issues. Marionette - Road Striping Upload Test_MFarrell.vwx

    Offset Poly - Close Open Curves Option

    It looks like there's something going on with units. If you wire a really large number to the offset port, you can see it offset, but 20 is too small. I'm investigating.

    Lights not rendering correctly.

    Hi @Matthew Geschke How many lights were in your file? OpenGL has a limit where only 8 lights can be on at one time. If you need to see more than 8 lights, you must use a Renderworks mode. Also, it appears you've uploaded an .xml file, but in order to check your file I will need the .vwx

    Exporting to SVG files

    Hi Jim! Export to SVG is actually one of my current personal research topics. Currently we don't support a direct workflow for exporting to SVG, however it's possible to export to PDF and open the PDF in a vector editing software to get some SVG elements out of it. (Save the PDF as SVG) To do this, you cannot rasterize the PDF on export from Vectorworks. Also, this is not foolproof. Sometimes it works well, other times it will fail, but it's the best workaround I'm aware of. I'm working on a Marionette script that can export to SVG, but it's in a primitive stage right now where it exports things upside down, and I cannot cut holes out of objects. If I ever get that working better, I'd be more than happy to share. Marissa

    Arcs to circles.

    Thanks @MullinRJ Your bug got assigned to me, so I'll be investigating it to send it forward to the engineers. Marissa

    worksheet sort icons missing

    Hi @Nick Kargel In 2018, this functionality was moved to a new location. With your database header selected, click on the down arrow and the options now appear there. Hope this helps! Edit: These options are also available in the context (right click) menu from a database header
