  1. Hello there, Hopefully this is the right place to post this... I have made a site model for a small residential design that I'm working on, and I also have a landscape area that I want to show on the site model as a texture bed. In the LA settings, I have it set as 'Texture Bed' in the 3D setting for the proposed site model. I've also right-clicked on the LA and chose 'Send to Surface' but I'm still not seeing it appear on the site model. The attached photo shows the LA selected beneath the site model after I tried to send it to the surface. I've also attached the file itself. Could anyone point out what I'm missing? Thanks so much.

  2. That work. Thank you so much!!! Thanks to all for your help!
  3. Hello everyone, I'm quite new to Marionette and I'm stuck within a network I'm trying to build. I'm using an Objects By Criteria node to return a list that defined by a criteria I've set. The resulting list contains several items that pertain to the same criteria, but I want the list summarize and return only one instance of the different types of items that result from the criteria I've set (hope that makes sense, hard to describe). What I'm looking for is no different than when a database row in a worksheet returns items that match a criteria and then you can summarize those values so that the result only shows a single summarized instance of the different items returned by the criteria. I've attached the network I'm working on, with a square drawn around the node that I'm trying to summarize/. I put a "remove Duplicates" node in but that has no result. Thanks so much for your help!

  4. Ok sounds good I'll try that. Thank you so much!
  5. Hi gain, this file is in VW 2021, need to update my signature!
  6. Hi there I'm a newbie to Marionette and and excited about learning it. However, I'm having trouble with some unexpected wire values coming out of the Contents node that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I made a simple group with some rectangles in it, and used a Name node to get that into Marionette. Then I put a Contents node to get the individual rectangles in. When I debug the wire coming out of the Contents node, I've getting a single value containing codes corresponding to the number of rectangles in the group, but I'm expecting a list of values with each value being "Vectorworks Handle type: 3". I'm using this video as a guide, and at 21:25 is where I'm learning what the Contents node should output ( Thanks so much in advance for your help Marionette practice 3.vwx
  7. Thanks so much to you both for your responses.
  8. Hi Pat, thanks again. When I enter that formula, my worksheet just returns #VALUE! (as in the attached image). I'm not very knowledgeable of using formulae in VW worksheets yet, so maybe I'm missing something in the syntax. Thanks so much for your help again.
  9. Hi Pat, Thanks so much for your response and taking the time to get back to me. I've tried the suggestion you gave, but it's still not seeming to work. I've attached the file as you requested, and truly grateful for you looking at this, and hopefully this thread will help others as well. Reeves site model retaining wall.vwx
  10. Hi Boh, I'm working on a similar application but I don't quite know how to make my worksheet recognize cut and fill values as numbers and not strings (as it seems it cannot use strings for making calculations. I see in your worksheet above that your cut and fill values are adding up in a totals row. I have used the "Create Report" option in Tools to generate a database row that shows only site models and provides some field information about the site model (row 7 in my worksheet below). When I try to do calculations on these site model values, I get unexpected results. How are you pulling your cut and fill values in your worksheet? Thanks so much , Adrian
  11. Hi Pat, for sure. Here it is attached and I've added in the dimensions that they should be. Hopefully I'm not overlooking something simple here. My motivation for this is generally to create various parts for a project and use VW to track their sizes on the worksheet, such as a lumber cutlist for a woodworking project. Thanks again for looking it over. test.vwx
  12. Thanks a lot for your response Pat. I think the main area where I'm having trouble is that when I use Width or Length or Height in a worksheet formula, it seems to give me different and unexpected values returned depending on the orientation the object or symbol is in the design layer. I'm hoping I'm able to use a formula that can return the actual dimension of an object or preferably a symbol regardless of what view is used, such as Plan, Top, Isometric etc. Actually in my document I'm getting rather unpredictable results with length and width. Grateful for any further thoughts on this!
  13. Hello, I'm still a bit of a newbie to VW, but does anyone know how to use a worksheet column to report what the dimensions of a symbol or object are, regardless of how it is displayed or oriented in a design layer? I am simply using extruded shapes converted into symbols to represent various pieces of lumber for a project and would like to use a worksheet to function as a parts list where the various lengths of lumber types are reported by the worksheet based on the drawn dimensions of each symbol. I played around with the IF statement to only print the longest dimension, but it seems that the orientation still plays into what is reported. The project is attached. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Rock display table.vwx
  14. Hello, I'm hoping someone can guide me in the right direction: I'm a VW 2015 user and I've having trouble finding out how to colour a texture bed modifier that is created by the Hardscape tool. Everything is working properly except the colour of the texture bed that is draped onto my DTM (right now it just appears as white, which is the same colour as my "none" class). Where I've gone into my Hardscape Settings with the hardscape selected, and I've set the 3D type to Texture Bed Modifier. Below that is a drop don menu labelled "Main Texture" where I should be able to set how the texture bed is coloured, but I only have 2 relevant choices: "None" and "By Class". Strangely, when I choose "By Class" and hit ok and then go back into the Hardscape Settings, it does not remember my choice and is set back to "None". Even if I was able to choose "By Class", where do I tell it what class to use? Grateful for any pointer you may have on this. I've attached the file I've bee playing around with.

  15. Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me with the following: Is there a way to set all selected plants within a Vectorworks document to a particular project ID in the VW Plant Database? I would like to be able to provide clients with a found set of plants in the VW Plant database that is based on the plant symbols in the VW program. One inquiry I have toward achieving this is if there was a way to append a Project ID to all plants in the VW Plant Database based on which plant symbols are in a project in VW program. I have version 2015 but if this is not possible in that version, I'm curious if this is possible in version 2018. Thanks!
