    Converting Strings to Numbers

    Hello Marionette lovers ! Is there anyway using existing nodes to convert strings (like the ones coming from the GetIFC Pset Value ... and many others from IPFC parameters...) into a number or Integer ? Maybe the node Function could do this trick ? (but was not capable to implement this properly ...) ? Thanks for your valued inputs !
  3. Hello everyone ! DId anyone here already experienced problems trying to add extrude along path solid with anything else inside VectorScript ? If i create an Extrude Along Path solid (via createcustomobjectpath('Extrude Along Path', hpath, profile); and then try to add the resulted solid with anything else (say, spheres...) using DoMenuTextbyName('Solid Operations',1); or with AddSolid() ... it doesn;t work ... The weird thing is that if i try to get the resulted solids from the script and run the AddSolid command manually over them it works perfectly ... Did someone here already faced this situation and came up with any turnaround ? Thanks !
  4. Which is the best/ correct method to have this Python package (PIL) installed into Vectorworks 2018. I'm little confused because in the http://www.pythonware.com/ says that PIL is compatible only (at the most) with Python 2.6. But Marionette's Python is 3.5 , correct ? But i've seen a few discussion in this forum referring to PIL installation ... Is there a common place in this topic ? Thanks ! David

    Object Contextual Menu

    I created (VS) a menu command but i need to use this command inside an Object Contextual Menu... I can insert it in the Object Contextual Menu using Workspace Editor ... but is there a way to know (inside VS Script...) the handle of the object which was right clicked ?

    Class Description Definition

    Is there any way to define the Description field of a class via VScript ? Tks for any tips !

    Thank you guys for the very quick replies ! David
  8. Hi Marissa I tried here... and it's crashing my Vectorworks here too ...

    Updating Spaces in a BIM Model

    Hello Marionette Enthusiasts and Experts: Is there any way to use Marionette to create Spaces in a BIM model ? I noticed that the nodes available for BIM operations are limited to Walls, Roofs, etc ... not spaces... Thanks for any ideas .... David

    Yeah, that worked too ... Thanks Dom !

    Get IFC Pset Value error ...

    One added think regarding the node Get IFC Pset Value: In a network i'm working on with Spaces (see attached file...) i'm having a bad time using this node because when changing Pset parameters the node sometimes "stuck" in old values... i change the values in the fields in the object (in this case Spaces) and the node seems not to follow... I could make things work normally when i switched to use Get Record Field node instead... But i wonder why Get IFC Pset Value doesn't Is there maybe a trick to make this node update accordingly with new Pset values ? Thanks for any hints ! Test_Spaces_Chk_PSets.vwx

    Get IFC Pset Value error ...

    Hello Marissa and other Marionette friends When using Get IFC Pset Value node i'm getting the following error message (2018 SP3) It seems to be something internal in the Python code ... isn;t it ? Tks !
  13. Hello folks Testing the great (and brilliant) sequence of scripts posted by @sbarrett using GeoPy... I'm using OSX 10.11.6 I could manage to install Geopy to the target inside my user folder (i used: pip install geopy -t /Users/David_PRO/Library/Application\ Support/VectorWorks/2018/Plug-ins/Marionette). And the object is correctly searching for the data of different capitals and showing correctly when changed in Object Info Address parameter... that's really awesome... However, the object for precipitation graph is showing the following error when i change the parameter "Units" to milimiters... Any hints ? Tips ? Again, fantastic examples ! Show one of the great functionalities of Marionette...

    Get IFC Pset Value error ...

    Hello Marissa: Thanks for your prompt reply... The object i'm feeding into the node is a Space object ... so, yes it does have PSets (several...) attached... The issue that i noticed here was that those Spaces were recently applied with the Space tool so their entity were IFC Standard Spaces not IFCSpaces... The curious point is that, the entity Space Standard shows several PSets (and of course... the one defined to be read by the node ...) in OIP The error message was not very clear regarding what was happening. Yes... i think that the absence of a parameter should not present an error message by the network Again tks for you suggestions and also for sending the node avoiding the error message ...

    Converting Strings to Numbers

    Ok... got it. Tks Marissa ! Yes... i think that in case we do have units involved we better trying creating a custom node and do things in Python instead ... right ?

    Event Driven Behavior

    Thanks for the suggestions Pat Yes, i already approached the issue using those options ... I wondered if it might be another approach maybe... after seeing the approach @DomC adopted using NextObject in a Wrap ... but in that case the object is hidden inside the wrap...

    Event Driven Behavior

    Hello Marionette lovers ! Is there a way to use Marionette to apply a "smart behavior" to an existing object ? For example: Let's say we have a wall (already in the drawing...) and would like it to become red if it's length is higher then 5m... I know that we may create a Marionette Command that can do this by selecting the wall and running the command But what i'm trying here is to have the object automatically incorporate this characteristic ... so that, whenever the wall is re-scaled it drives the length checking script ... Something like an event driven Marionette node net .. (?) Thanks for any ideas !

    Updating Spaces in a BIM Model

    Thanks everyone for the various comments, suggestions and tips ! Marissa... Yes... That would be very important to have something in the future that could address the direct creation of Spaces (considering it's importance inside BIM modeling... if there are nodes to create Walls and Slabs... that should be also ones to create spaces objects ...). Don, the usage of "Create Custom Object Path" is a great tip indeed... thanks ! Again, thanks also Alan and MaWi for helping !

    Updating Spaces in a BIM Model

    Great ! Thanks for the suggestion of using "Create Custom Object Path" and also thanks for the tip of using a template and change it's parameters ... Helped a lot ! Thanks !

    Updating Spaces in a BIM Model

    Thanks everyone for the replies and suggestions... Hi Marissa Yes... that's something i was also missing in VScript ... That would be very important to have something in the future that could address the direct creation of Spaces (considering it's importance inside BIM modeling...). Thanks !

    Walls Still Left Unconnected

    Hello everyone ! A few months ago (version 2017) i created a topic mentioning about the node Wall left walls unconnected when you feed a list of vertices into it's inputs. Now (in 2018) i realized that the Wall node is still presenting the same issue... I wonder if there's any form to join walls via Marionette without having to re-program the node... Thanks for any tip...

    Walls Still Left Unconnected

    @Alan Woodwell Thanks for your comment ! As you know there's a tweet in the wall node code provided by @Marissa Farrell in my first post in March ... That will work fine ... What i wonder is why not incorporating that new solution to the wall node that comes with the program ? I think the evolution of the nodes is an important point to remember when releasing new versions of VW don;t you ? Or do this behavior of the wall nodes is something that is expected ? Cheers !
  23. Experiencing with the use of Wall nodes with a list of 2D points i end up by getting separated walls... Am i missing (probably...) something in the network of nodes i'm using (see attach) ? How to get the walls connected with each other ?

    Wall Connections Using Wall Node

    Hi Marissa... Making some experiences with walls in Marionette in 2018 i just noticed that the wall node was not adjusted with this new Py script you made here ... it's still leaving the walls unconnected when used... should we keep sending this modified script here to the customers ?
