    Marionette rotate Plan to 0°

    A few years back we were running into an issue with Marionette that resulted in objects not being created correctly when run/updated in a 3D view. Code was added to store the current view, run the network in Top/Plan, and return to the stored view. I am assuming that plan rotation was not taken into account. I'll put a bug in for this 🙂

    Data Visualization - mystery pen override

    Thank you! I'm seeing a variety of odd things, I'll get this sent along to the engineers 🙂

    Data Visualization - mystery pen override

    @techdef Can you send me that file, either attached here or in a private message? Thanks!

    Let me take a look at the video as I haven't watched it (at least in a while... 🙂 ) I'll get back to you as soon as I find the time!

    Hi! I've attached a file with the 2020 version of the node - I can't remember when it was fixed, but it works for me now. Marionette (1) v2020 v2019.vwx
  6. It's possible there's a bug hiding somewhere in the Marionette tool that is causing this issue for you. A restart of the application, or reopening of the file, should remedy the issue until the buggy steps are taken again. I've been looking into this for a while now, but haven't tracked it down, so if you find yourself with a reproducible case, please let me know so I can report it for the engineers!

    Input Node for Selection

    @GRZEGORZ I would suggest using the Control Geometry node and placing the geometry you want to use into the Control Geometry group of the Marionette Object. There is currently no way to run a network on a selected object unless it is a Menu Command, which as you stated, will not maintain it as a Marionette Object.

    Polygon paint bucket mode

    There's always a chance, but I feel this may be a huge undertaking. Right now I'm not aware of any built-in functions that would be useful for this, so it would likely require checking most, if not all, of the objects in a drawing to see their placement with regards to that point, and then calculate all of their intersections. If I can find a more straightforward way to do this, then it could be possible.

    Image Processing

    Version 2.0.1


    This network will read the data in an image existing in your file, for example, the color of each of the pixels, and create rectangles/extrusions with the same fill color. The extrusions are created at a height correlating to their brightness. The data extracted from the image could be used in many additional ways.

    🙄 alright then! 😁

    procedure for 3ds import

    I'm not sure there is one, I just went and browsed the dev wiki and nothing popped out at me.

    How to render Braceworks Truss color

    The rendering you have is what you can expect, unfortunately there is not a true gradient nor truss texturing with this feature. A separate object is drawn to display the gradient. It would likely be too heavy to do actual geometry.

    Intro-Guidance for a utility script

    It should definitely work! Just pop it in where you want it. It might use the default text size of the document, maybe that is your issue?

    Intro-Guidance for a utility script

    You can get rid of the print debug node if you want, it will only show data once the network is run. Maybe this file will help? concatHandlingMFarrell2_v2019.vwx

    Intro-Guidance for a utility script

    Here's one way to handle it: concatHandlingMFarrell_v2019.vwx

    Intro-Guidance for a utility script

    An alternative to the Sequence node would be Series where you can define Count, or as you stated, you can subtract one while still using the Sequence node. For Concat, it's taking ALL of the values and concatenating them (as I'm sure you noticed), so we'll have to do a little more handling. I'll get a file together with an option, probably won't be the best option, but it will work.

    Issue rotating object node

    Does that Marionette Object also include Control Point nodes? Could you share that as well?

    Issue rotating object node

    Other Marionette Objects, or other VW objects in general? It does look buggy, so I will pop this object into our bug tracking, but if you can provide me with more information on where else you see it, it may help us to diagnose where the issue is.

    Issue rotating object node

    @elepp Can you either post or message me a copy of this file?

    Intro-Guidance for a utility script

    @arquitextonica Right now, according to your description, all of these things should be doable with existing nodes that ship with Vectorworks, including the querying and numbering. Look through the Data Flow nodes, they can help you with filtering and sorting. You'll also probably want to look at the Object Info nodes. In some cases, you may need to outsource for some information from the developer wiki (for instance when trying to figure out what number an object type corresponds to), this page may help: http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Function_Reference_Appendix

    Manage Menu Commands

    The path for Mac and Windows is the same, I also was using Mac for reference. The easiest way to navigate to your user folder is to go to Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences in Vectorworks, choose the User Folders tab, and select Reveal in Finder.

    Manage Menu Commands

    Hi @mkue Marionette Menu Commands are stored in your user folder > Libraries > Defaults > Marionette > Marionette Command Library.vwx If you open that file in Vectorworks, you can delete the red symbols in the document that refer to the commands you want to remove. There is no way at this time to sign a Marionette Menu Command as a keyboard shortcut.

    Plane not deleted after planar boolean

    This is a non-issue with Marionette/Python scripts.

    Plane not deleted after planar boolean

    With regards to the wires/ports swapping, this is similar (if not the same as) an old issue between VW versions; Marionette was updated to alphabetize wrapper ports, sometimes when editing networks that didn't update themselves, the ports will change position but the wires may not follow correctly. I'll look around our bug tracking to see if I can find the original bug, if I can't find it, I'll try to get a new one reported. I started digging around this file back when it was first posted, but unfortunately didn't have enough time to diagnose. I'll try to take another look as soon as I have time.

    Workgroup Templates not Available for One User...VW2019

    This is my exact understanding from when I inquired a few years back.
