  1. Hello Pat Thanks for the help you want to give me. I try to describe what I want. It's actually about making a measurement statement for 2d drawings. In the facade I now draw surfaces for the different facade elements with rectangles. I now manually enter a name for these rectangles via the PIO and then I can retrieve the name of that rectangle and the dimensions to retrieve the m2 via spreadsheet. So now I have to draw the rectangle every time and then manually enter a name. So I wondered if I could create that name by, for example, a kind of stamp. But then a stamp that is immediately linked to that rectangle. Then I don't have to do that manually for every rectangle. The order of the numbering is actually determined according to the click on the rectangle or object that I click. I hope this is clear? Pascal
  2. how can I create a script that develops an object of a certain type and class and automatically gives it a name and number. The name I want via info palette as a prefix type, followed by a sequential number. Of course there should also be an option to reset the number so that I can add again to number. Thanks for the help Pascal
  3. Would there be a possibility to automatically name objects using numbering, with a connection between the object, and the name. So I can put later on a data tag Pascal
  4. The resource materials still raises some questions for me. Why cannot one set the pen thickness and the 2d line hatching, eg to see the hatching of a floor slab in the 2d plan? You can set the texture and fill of the cut through the materials, but to set the pen width and line shading you have to go through the classes again. Isn't that a bit complex, or is there some other reason for it? P
  5. Hello how can I script several curved poly lines with a different offset and fillcolor on base of settings from my classes.? No I make something, but it only works in a straight way, not in curved modus thanks PROCEDURE tegelwand; VAR l,md,td:REAL; BEGIN l := PLINELENGTH; md := pmd; td := ptd; { teken onderlegger } NameClass('onderlegger'); poly (0,0,l,0,l,pmd,0,pmd,0,0); { teken tegels } NameClass('tegels'); poly(0,0,l,0,l,ptd,0,ptd,0,0); { teken muur } NameClass('muur'); poly(0,pmd,0,0,l,0); { teken daglijn } moveto (0,pmd); { teken daglijn} NameClass('daglijn'); poly(0,pmd,0,0,l,0); END; Run(tegelwand); thanks
  6. Where can I find these on a Mac please thanks for the info
  7. When will workable spreadsheets finally be made? Working in spreadsheets is excruciatingly slow, if you cancel something you jump back to the top of the worksheet and you can search where you were. You cannot search for values in the table. Scrolling in a spreadsheet is not workable at all. Deleting multiple rows or columns will jump back to one row or one column after selecting multiple rows or columns. and so on and so on Help I need a good working tool!! Pascal
  8. no this is not the problem. The classes from the slab are active, because some slabs works very good, other slabs disrepair when I double click on it when I try to work on it. Then I get the message there is not a graphical object, so if you leave the workspace from the slab then it is totally gone an must a redraw the slab Pascal
  9. I don't really understand what is happening with the slabs at Vectorworks. I have a large project where I drew all my slabs and attached them to walls. I then have to do some operations such as cutting out parts where tubes, beams and stairs are. I then see that the plate is no longer linked to my walls. If I then double click on my slab and go to the outline, the slab is gone. It is also on a level that is completely wrong, but in a section it is good, but you can no longer edit it.It is very frustrating to draw the plate every time and then later in your drawing after x number of operations to further determine that the slab has disappeared for the umpteenth time. Is this a known problem and how can it be solved?

    Is there a label available with which I can number but can put a variable prefix before this number e.g. R0. (prefix) 1 (number so you can get R0.1, R1.1 thanks Pascal
  11. I would like to be able to rearrange the structure of the layers. Kind of in the same way as the classes. Make sure that you can group, expand and collapse layers in the layers window. That one has a kind of folder structure for building layers +00, +01 etc, in which you can place the corresponding layers and in this way shorten the long list of layers. Now I do it through filters, but I think it could be easier that way. Pascal
  12. Hallo Pat That was indeed my problem and by removing the cr I get what I wanted to achieve. Learned something new again. I can also use Jbenghiat's tip in the future. Thanks for the quick reply.
  13. I am creating a plug-in where certain text should appear in an arrow, and in which I can adjust certain text elements via the info palette. Only I can't manage to get the text parts that I have to fill in one after the other via the info palette. Now everything is written under each other. someone an idea how to change my script please? This is my script Procedure Ventilatiepijl; VAR eventID, eventMessage : LONGINT; pl,pb,a,b:REAL; t1,t2,t3,t123:STRING; ts:INTEGER; h:HANDLE; BEGIN BEGIN h:=FSActLayer; ts:=PSize; PushAttrs; t1:=Pnummer; t2:=plengte; t3:=pdebiet; pl:=ppl; pb:=ppb; TextFont(GetFontID('Consolas')); TextFace([]); TextSize(ts); TextFlip(0); TextRotate(0); TextSpace(0); TextJust(1); TextVerticalAlign(5); TextOrigin(0,0); t123:=Concat('Invisivent Air Basic 62m3/u.lm,',t1,'=',Chr(13),'=',t2,Chr(13),'',t3,Chr(13)); BeginText; t123 EndText; begin; Poly (0,0, pl,0, pl,-8, pl+20,12, pl,32, pl,pb, 0,pb ); end; PopAttrs; END; End; Run (Ventilatiepijl); Thanks for the help
  14. I think I know it is possible to retrieve quantities of objects that are in a space. Anyone an idea how I can retrieve in my spreadsheet the quantities of my skirting boards that are in the kitchen space? Thanks Pascal
  15. Draw the gate in your top wall as well as your foundation wall. But put the gate you drew in your foundation wall in a class virtual and make it invisible. For me that is the simplest way. P
  16. I place the space on the desinglayer floors wich is on level +00 and than i Change the Z-value in the OIP. When I refresh the space than I get the value 36 in my label of the space.
  17. ok forget my question, I just found the solution
  18. Is there a possibility to have spaces grab to reference levels. I use stories. eg floors that are at level 00 and on that layer I draw my floors effectively, but I also have reference layers within my stories, eg floors at +36 level. By doing it that way, I don't need that many design layers. But now when I draw a space that represents the level I get the value 0.00 and not the value +36. How can I get the value +36 in my room without making an extra design layer of floors at level +36. Otherwise I get way too many design teases.
  19. Hi, yes I understand that every object must have a unique name that you enter by name in IOP. But is there is a possibility to let this happen automatically?. For example, I enter an initial value and then randomly number all walls with this initial value +1 (this then comes in the field of the name of the object in the IOP and then I can use the data tag to visualize this in the drawing.Hi, yes I understand that every object must have a unique name that you enter by name in IO.

  20. Thanks for the tip. Works perfectly. Would there also be a possibility to select, for example, all walls on a layer and automatically give them a name?
  21. I would like to make a date tag for numbering the walls. Now when I use the existing tag I only get the reference from the IFC. I really just want the name of the wall that I enter manually. If I choose # N # then when selecting the option link to multiple objects all objects are chosen, including the lines and other things. How can I ensure that the data tag only selects my walls and adds the name that I entered in the info palette. thanks for the feedback. P

    Hello I am not yet able to work with marionette and therefore make the first attempts to learn it, but I would like to appeal to your knowledge in the meantime. Is there anyone who could help me write a marionette script for making a claustra in 3d. (see image) the parameters that I think I need is the width, height of the height of application, dimensions of the brick, width height depth. If anyone likes it, please give a short explanation of how to use it. Thanks Pascal
  24. Okay, that is a possibility, but I don't understand why a text style that I assigned to the dimensions cannot be controlled via the classes in the sheetlayer. For example, if I turn a wall brown in my design layer, I can turn it yellow through the classes in my sheetlayer, why do dimensions not listen to those classes in your presentation layer? This is an existing drawing, so moving all dimensions to the annotations is a bit more complicated, the more so if I choose copy and paste, the sizes are no longer associated with my walls. Pascal
  25. I have a dimension to which I have linked a text style through my classes. I make a sheetlayer and I want to increase the sizes there in terms of text size. I select my viewport and go through classes to dimensions to adjust the text style there. But nothing happens, how can I ONLY make the dimensions and NOT all other text bigger in my sheetlayer? pascal
