    Creating Suite Numbers

    I agree with the suggestion of Data Tag, but if you find that it's not a reasonable solution, we can absolutely tackle this with Marionette in one way or another.

    What mouse do you recommend?

    I haven't yet upgraded, but this is great information for me to keep an eye out for. I'm planning to get the beta installed this week and I will keep this in mind!

    Unlock node (new) not working

    There are tables in the appendix of the dev wiki that cover most selector values. http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Function_Reference_Appendix

    Unlock node (new) not working

    Although I haven't tested, I would use vs.SetObjectVariableBoolean(h, 700, False)

    Extrude Along Path Control

    @Niels Timmer I'm attaching a revision, you were so close, just needed to change the dropdown in the Change Vertex Type's OIP to Radius 190712 ChangeVertexType_MFarrell.vwx

    Dedicated Forum Moderator (ie Jim Wilson 2.0)

    Though Jim's presence is no longer around in a Vectorworks employee capacity, I want to assure you that many employees are reading the forums every day. We may not respond to every post on here as we have other priorities, but nearly everything of importance with regards to issues or potential improvements is being discussed internally among us and bugs as well as feature requests are being created. Please don't think that when we lost Jim that you lost us, we're still listening.

    Image sampler?

    Here's a file with the nodes copied over and wired in, it works for me, so hopefully you find the same: Submitted_Halftone_Marionette_v1_v2019.vwx

    Image sampler?

    This error is due to Vectorworks changing how it reads paths between 2018 and 2019? (maybe the switch was earlier, I cannot remember) I believe that you should be able to just copy my read image node and my GetPixRGB node from my file and replace the ones in the halftone file, I'll take a better look in a bit.
  9. Though I am unsure as to why it wasn't included initially, we do have an existing wish to have it implemented at some time, I cannot guess when that may be. But we're certainly aware of the benefits of adding that option in the future.

    Extrude Along Path Control

    @Niels Timmer If you know which vertices need to be arc vertices, you can use the Change Vertex Type node on your resulting poly with the appropriate indices and radii to change those to arc vertices. Please let me know if you need some extra guidance.

    Image sampler?

    There is nothing in Marionette's shipped content that will do this, though a couple of years back I wrote a node that will read an image, that data can be used to do this. These files may not be updated properly for 2019, if you come across an error when installing the Python modules, please let me know which OS and VW version you are running and I will update the scripts to work. Original file, extrudes the pixels as rectangles to a height based on their brightness: User modified file that seems to result similarly to what you are hoping to achieve:

    Marionette object only editable in plan view

    @Dob Quick question - which version are you using/did you create this Marionette Object in?
  13. Ahhhh I misread your original post, so sorry! We do not support Marionette Commands located in the workgroup folder at this time only the User Folder.
  14. Additionally, are the files saved as 2019 versions?
  15. This should be working - have you refreshed your libraries from the Resource Manager? This command is located when clicking the gear icon from the RM.

    Help with Polygon and extrusion

    Yes, the closed checkmark is what I used, but usually if your points all touch it will close itself. You must have been off by the teeniest unseen-to-the-eye amount. If you click-hold the circle button between the two arrows, the vertex will remain highlighted. I did notice while going through again that there was still one extra vertex, so I removed it in this revision. Please don't feel bad about asking questions! This forum thrives on questions from users, and everyone here is willing to help 🙂 We would rather get asked all sorts of questions than have anyone stuck on something they need help with. websters upstairs v1.3_MKF v2018_v2.vwx

    Help with Polygon and extrusion

    So I found the issue and fixed it - On the inner edge of the left side of the profile, there must have been two lines overlapping when you composed because stepping through the vertices bounced back over that edge once before continuing. The poly was also not closed. I've attached a revised file, exported back from a newer version (you should have no issues opening it, please let me know if otherwise). You should be able to extrude this shape as a solid (I tested and undid the action to make sure). websters upstairs v1.3_MKF v2018.vwx

    Create Layer - Layer Order

    I would suggest using an Ordered List node to assign the order of the creation. There's no real way to determine the order of inputs to a single port if many wires enter it; the Ordered List node will ensure that the values are passed in the order you've specified.

    Help with Polygon and extrusion

    This usually means that the profile is not a closed polygon, also, you will want to leave it as a 2D poly. Can you attach a file that contains the profile? I, or someone else, can take a look for you.

    Pop up list question

    1) You can use either single or double quotes, it does not matter as long as you open and close with the same type. 2) Marionette networks cannot be run on selected objects unless you convert them to a Marionette Menu Command, though I am not certain, I am assuming that is why you are getting a false count of 16 while running in debug mode. 3) Currently, using the button on the Objects by Criteria node will always revert that dialog back to the defaults. As long as you don't hit OK in that dialog, your previous criteria will remain the same. There is currently a request in to have the Criteria dialog display the current criteria from the OIP when the button is pressed. 4) You can use Control Geometry to define your source geometry as an alternative to the name node and then create a Marionette Object (which is basically a Plug In Object that uses a Marionette script as its code). I'm not sure if this would fit your needs, but if you'd like more information on it, I'd be more than happy to go into further explanation. Hope this helps!

    Pop up list question

    Taking a quick look at your script, this may be as easy as adding quotations around your output values (I am assuming these are the strings you use for naming your profile?) For example if input == 3: self.Params.output.value = "K5"

    Extrude Along Path Control

    @Pvz11 You can move your Extrude Along Path upward using the Move node, or you can extrude legs below the EAP. Once converted to a Marionette Object, it can move around freely. The Marionette Object has its own coordinate system that you will use to move/place your individual parts.

    Extrude Along Path Control

    You can create your profile the same way I got around the compose issue - determine the location/drawing order of your vertices and feed them into a Poly node. Using the Ordered List node allows you to order the points that are going into the Poly node, if you were to just wire them all into the same port, the Poly node could take them in unpredictably. Ordering them ahead of time will ensure that they are drawn exactly how you expect. For example, a square profile - you would provide it 4 points (0,0), (0,1), (1,1), and (1,0) into the first four ports of an Ordered List node, placing a Polygon 2D node after it. You then have two options; you can use the Set Closed 2D node after the Poly node, or you can wire the first point, (0,0), into the fifth port of the Ordered List node (item4). I hope this helps, but if it doesn't, feel free to keep asking for clarification 🙂

    Extrude Along Path Control

    @Pvz11 I took a look and made a few changes to your network - I didn't edit the one you have on your drawing area, but I did redo the one inside of the Marionette Object. I hope this helps - basically the "compose" node was failing to compose the lines while in a Marionette Object, I'm going to submit a bug for that since I'm not sure why it works in a regular network, but not in an Object. Please let me know if you need any help improving this further! Marionette-ExtrudeAlongpath-OfficeDeskCounterTop_MFarrell.vwx

    Alert Dialog and Attribute Popup

    Attached is a file with a revision that should work for this use case, I'm sure there's a reason I didn't go this route initially, but I can't recall why. There's also a chance I had fixed the issue you're experiencing in a more recent node, though I'll have to dig through some files to see what my latest revision was (though I'm sure it's more recent than Nov 2018, as dated in the node you've been using) Tags_to_Designlayer_List_MFarrell.vwx
