  1. Hi @Chad Hamilton HAarchs thank you for your feedback . just to confirm, you use: - on title block file with common info - for each layout, for each file you create a viewport of this file question: the individual info/data of each layout (page number, title drawing, scale drawing, drawer, date...) is inserted on each layout?

    Marionette Functional for Me!!

    I will try again! I have used Blueprint code in UE4 and the Xpresso on C4D with great results and improvements on my office Workflow. I was hopping that Marionette could do the same with Vectorworks

    Marionette Functional for Me!!

    Great News! Has you I had given twice a trie on Marionette. In the second round I even introduced it in the workflow of the office 3 objects I have created (automatic ceiling coves, automatic standard facade, automatic skirting) ....it works....but with so much pain, file crashes, file slow down, strange resets for the original shape ....in the end do not pay the enfort : The time to Create the Marionette + the time to solve is issues in each file > The time to do it Manually Old Fashion Style (doing the same little tasks repeatedly) Reading you, I probably will give Marionette a third trying it it is really more stable....no bugs ...no strange behaviors....no crash every object update?
  4. Hi, it should be easy. On the Record you create several data entries: Finishing Price 1 Finishing Price 2 Finishing Price 3 On the object Data you fill the Price for each finishing Than on the Worksheet you call which price you want to see . i hope this will help you
  5. Hi @ericjhberg and @Art V , you have found a solution for your problem? I'm also looking for something similar: a common data File that contain all the Project main info (Project ID, Project Name, Address, Client, etc) and than, some how spread this information to several File Projects and its Layouts inside. Please share your knowledge
  6. Regarding Marionette, It something that are rely being used by common users, in daily work? Looking at the Marionette Forum Gallery it looks like there are not so much users/ shares (the majority of shared files are from people from or working for Vectorworks). I confess that I have given a trie (two times) to Marionette, and it is something that we can not rely on. It is not stable, the files with Marionette tends to crash down, to heavy to open (simple structure). There will be some improvements on this field (very promising, but not delivering)?

    USDz File Export

    In September, Apple will release the ARKIT 2.0. One of the biggest announce is the use of a Open Source (developed by PIXAR) of 3D file (USDz) that will be fully supported by Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iMacs) and their common apps (Mail, Safari, Notes, Pages, etc). This will aloud that any one can easily share 3D Objects via e-mail or web, and every one with an iPhone (there are millions out there) could see the 3D Content in Augmented Reality in real presence full scale. The main goal is this USDz file will became the PDF of 3D and Augmented Reality. This is a Game Changer for ALL of us Architects, Designers, Creatives that already work ALL in 3D. It will be very easy and natural to share our creations internally in Work In Progress and also with our Clients for more engaging approvals of our concepts/ works Knowing this, and as a heavy VECTORWORKS user, my simple question is: WHEN WILL VECTORWORKS WILL FULLY SUPPORT USDZ FILES? Please do not be to late, the BIG WAVE is coming, and we as Vectorworks Lovers want to catch it FIRST. Please right here your thoughts and predictions about this.

    Automatic Sections Labels

    There is any way to automatically make Sections Labels as the ones indicated in the attached drawing? I use the Section View Ports, and it work great, but would be fantastic if Vectorworks have a tool to make Automatic Sections Labels (mainly the reference of finishing materials and reference of the furniture). I have tried the ID Label tool with no success. It mainly work only on the layout plan. Only the Doors and Windows can have a 3D view. Any one know a solution/ tool. In a parametric CAD program, where every elements could have data attached, should be easy to have Automatic Sections Labels. Thank you for the advise/ feedback

    Layouts external DATA reference

    There is any solution built in on VECTORWORKS for workflow problem: Project DATA info update in ALL PROJECT FILES and LAYOUTS. For each project in our office we have about 5 vectorworks files and each one with several sheets layouts. There is any way that we can centralize the Project DATA info (name, address, client, date, stage, etc) in a common external file (as an xRef) and easily Change/Update this information and imedeatly populate all the linked files and layouts (without manual imports or worksheet updates - just with the open of the file)?

    Worksheet Current Layer Criteria

    Thanks a LOT (you work on Sunday!!!!) 😉 Now it works PERFECTLY I may have an additional question regarding Worksheets.

For each project in our office we have about 5 vectorworks files and each one with several sheets layouts. There is any way that we can centralize the Project DATA info (name, address, client, date, stage, etc) in a common external file (as an xRef) and easily Change/Update this information and imedeatly populate all the linked files and layouts (without manual imports or worksheet updates - just with the open of the file)?

    Worksheet Current Layer Criteria

    Sorry for may late reply I'm to busy doing the daily work, than it not leave many space to the improves. I want to thank you both for your great feedback. I want to create a mix of your both ideas, but I stoped (probably in a very basic step) @MullinRJ your file works great when I open, if I change the name of the Layer it automatically updates, but when I copy your worksheet to my file, the result turns 0 I have to active any specific script in my file? I notice this CCC window open in your file with the runscript (attached image). Could you help me in this little step? Thank you again for your help. Best regards, Nuno

    Marionette Script deletes class "0" in custom file template

    Hi @Marissa Farrelland @sbarrett, i have exactly the same issue in my office. In random, the Marionette Objects delete the ‘0” class and than for us it is impossible to understand if we miss some information. as a work around we are trying to get rid of all “0” class elements in our base drawings, but as this is a standard layer/ class in Autocad users, every time we import some drawings from external suppliers, the “0” class apears again. I confess this is a UGE issue because we can not use Marionette Objects , and being always afraid that data will be lost. and please not that we have the “NONE” class. please advise what is the solution ! my major problem to implement MARIONETTE objects in the workflow is this kind of Bugs. thanks in advance for your support

    Marionette RESET Bug

    Dear Vectorworks Marionette Developers TEAM Every time I copy/ duplicate or even modify some value in the Marionette Object, it will completely RESET the object. Do not make any sense, and this isthe main reason that I do not introduce the Marionette in my Office Workflow. The main propose of Marionette should be to reduce time on repetitive tasks, and with these BUGs it does exactly the opposite. Marionette is very INSTABLE and it’s impossible to work in a system like this. I HOPPE the VECTORWORKS team take a deep improve an the this systems, because as it is now, is no good. All other major companies as Autodesk, Maxon have similar sistems more stable. A STABLE Marionette system is my which for 2018 (early 2018) I hope Have a nice 2018
