  1. 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
  2. For your class settings, do you have "Use at Creation" set?
  3. Thanks for confirming! I'll get it filed in our bug tracking system and see if we can get a fix.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Menu commands do not result in a group.
  8. 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
  9. 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. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. You didn't name the Real node '1'. Rename this node from '1' to 'one'
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Hey Alan, use the orange String node (str) Hope this helps
  19. @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
  20. 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.
  21. 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'?
  22. 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.
  23. I'm actually just an early bird I'm usually here about an hour or more before everyone else starts showing up.
  24. 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!
