  1. Hmmm. You shouldn't need to do anything special. What is your system language set to?
  2. I'm still not sure you're looking in the correct location. Try using the "Reveal in Finder" button in your preferences.
  3. Can you try running the node in this file? Its purpose is to install commonly used Python Libraries to Vectorworks Python. I believe it has 5 different libraries to install. The packages will install to your user folder > Python Externals PythonLibsNeeded_v2019.vwx
  4. @gester Vectorworks uses the Python version that comes installed in the package. Are you using 2018 or 2019? I believe in 2018 we switched to Python 3.5 for Vectorworks. It's possible that the library link in Sarah's network is not updated to download to the correct Python version. I'll need more information to help you resolve this.
  5. Could you either share this file or a simplified version of it so I can better understand what you're hoping to do?
  6. No problem! It's definitely a whole new world!
  7. Generally, the libraries contain many types of corner blocks - There are L shaped and 3-way corners (please excuse my lack of industry nomenclature) in addition to other configurations. Looking at the Tomcat libraries, I see there are different configurations denoted by "C#B" which should let you know how many connections may be made off of that corner truss. (The spigoted library uses "C#S")
  8. @Magnus Mikaelsen When inserting your symbol, make sure you have the correct alignment mode selected in the Tool Bar.
  9. Unfortunately, I believe you cannot use a corner block unless it has connections on all ends, so since you're using the corner at the end of your truss line, the calculations will fail.
  10. You don't need to add any more Attach Existing Record or Parent PIO nodes, you should be fine to just use the multiple Set Record Field nodes.
  11. In many cases you won't need it, but since I needed to make sure the rectangle node was connected to the rest of the network in some way, I had to include it.
  12. yep! That's absolutely correct.
  13. Here's a quick example - I included a custom Popup node (I'll look into modifying the one we have in our Default Content for easier use) You may not need the Pass node as long as every node in your script is wired together in some way, I only used it because I needed to make sure that all of the nodes were connected to the network. Note: I currently have this update the record attached to the Marionette Object by using the PIO Handle (Parent PIO) node. If you want to assign it to an item inside of your Marionette Object (or if you are just using it in a standalone script), you can just wire the object you want to assign the record to there.

  14. I looked into this - there is something wrong with the Get Record Field node - I replaced all of the ones that existed with one from the default content library and the network now works appropriately on my end. I will note, I am using 2019, and am not sure which version you are using (though I can tell it's prior to 2019) so please let me know if you're still having an issue and I will send you a file with a new node in the correct version for you to replace them with.
  15. It looks like you aren't getting values returned from your Get Record Field nodes (They are resulting in "<Unknown Value>"), which will affect the rest of your network. You can see that you have wires coming out of your Filter nodes that have 0 items, which will prevent the network from running correctly. I would suggest looking into why values aren't being returned appropriately from the Get Record Field nodes and going from there.
  16. The issue is that the file name for line styles is translated in non-English versions. You should be able to change the filename in the node script to what your file is named and it should work.
  17. Are you in a non-English version of Vectorworks? I've learned that my network may only work with English. I have a node in progress that will work in any language.
  18. No problem! I think it's really close to what you had before, I just seem to have lost at least one node when moving things around. Creating a red symbol is easy - when creating a symbol from a Marionette Object, in the Symbol Options dialog choose "Convert to Plug-In object" You can also change an existing black symbol to a red symbol by right clicking on the resource in the Resource Manager and editing the symbol options from there. Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
  19. If you name the Popup List node in the OIP with a name, it should appear in the OIP when converted to a Marionette Object.
  20. Ah - I forgot to mention the step where you delete the line at the very top that starts with #COMMAND. If you delete that entire first line, the script/node will update.
  21. This file has a lot of problems with it, and I'm having a hard time believing it's a native 2018 file since many of the nodes are from earlier versions of Marionette resources. If you enter the symbol and edit the script, the Marionette object displays an error when exiting edit mode, it then displays an object that doesn't look like the symbol did before edit (but does appear to look the same as if you copy-pasted into a new file) I think your Marionette script is corrupt, and there's not much anyone could do about it without rewriting/rewiring the whole thing. I've made some progress rewiring it, but I don't know enough about the object to finish it up. Right now, it does appear to be pasting correctly into a new file. The revised symbol now has "rewired" appended to it. I also changed it to a Red Symbol, which will insert it as a Marionette Object instead of a 3D Symbol. I also changed some of your Int nodes to Dim nodes so that it works better when changing document units. Onderkast 3 fronten check_MFarrell cleanup.vwx
  22. @fpaniz Are these generic solids created in Vectorworks, or were they imported from a different file type?
  23. Yep! So the Popup List node is a template for users to edit to make their own lists. You can add/change the "Choice 1, Choice 2, Choice 3" and add more items to that list as well. The outputs will start at 0, so if Choice 1 is selected, 0 will be the output. Does this help?
  24. Hi @Onink I'm looking into this right now, but I have a question first - which version of Vectorworks was this originally created in? I'm working on reorganizing your nodes (they all got stretched out) so just wondering if this was created in 2018 (which is the version it appears to be last saved in) or in an earlier version. Thanks! Marissa
  25. You can save the Marionette Object as a Red Symbol in your Resource Manager which would allow you to insert it into other documents (you could save this file to your user folder or to your Favorite Files for easy access) When creating the symbol, make sure "Convert to Plug In" is checked in the Symbol Options window to make it a red symbol instead of a black symbol.
