    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

    Câmera Node

    Hi everybody, At this moment with VW2018, there is any way to create a Camera and control it with marionette? thank in advance for the feedback

    Attaching Objects to a Renderworks Camera using Marionette

    Hi, at this moment, already in VW2018, there is any way to create and control a Camera with Marionette?

    Marionette Hopeless

    @DomCthank you for your great support. Regarding the Marionette Code tree, how complex could it grow? There is any limit of nodes? 100 nodes, 1000 nodes, 10000 nodes? The Marionette Objects take some time (seconds) to generate or updated, and I’m afraid that there is some limit for the quantitie of operations inside a marionette object

    Marionette Inception

    Dear Marionette Gurus, It is possible to have a Marionette (with symbols inside) inside a symbol? Basicly I want a Symbol that the 3D model is a Marionette Object composed by 3D Symbols parts. It is possible this Marionette Inception (we got to go deeper)? Thank you in advance

    Marionette Hopeless

    @willofmaineDo not Give Up. I’m introducing the first Marionette Objects the workflow of my Architecture Agancy. And so far so good. At this moment the only “issue” is every time I duplicate or Copy/Paste a Marionette Object, it reset for is original Input Values. To avoid this you need to change the Values directly on the code. Not a pretty thing to do, but it will do the trick. I’m moving forward with Marionette. If I take 1 hour to 3D module a complete facade, or I take only 5 minutes to adjust some dimensions Values on a Marionette Object, the choice is easy (i’m Talking of course in a repeatable work)

    Marionette Hopeless

    @willofmaineI have exactly the same path on Marionette that you did: 1st - I have used the Input Numering to order the User Interface (that is indicated in a oficial Vectowork tutorial) - Marissa also told me that can not be done 2nd - Remove the numbering, still not stable (the imput fields appeared duplicated after a copy) - Pat Stanford also told me, you should be using VW2018 3rd - I’m now on VW2018 but the reset after a copy continue to be an issue Is any one using Marionette in Office Workflow? It sims the Marionette system is not stable and we can not rely our work on it. I can not use something in my Havy Work Architectural Office that i can not know what it will do. In my office we also use a lot Cinema 4D (same house of Vectoworks) and we have many many things based on EXPRESSO (similar code language to Marionette), and the system works fine and fast, with no surprises and wait several seconds (40 in your case) with the fingers crossed, never knowing what will happen. If Marionette is the Future of BIM Architectural, it needs to be more realible, stable and fast (as EXPRESSO) so we can take use of it. If you succeed in your QUEST, please share with use.... possibly some will follow you Good Luke

    Duplicate Marionette Object Bug

    So every time I copy a Marionette object and I need to edit some measure it will reset the ALL variables? This make the use of Marionette objects very limited. My idea of marionette objects is to have an object with similar structure, but different measures, that I can copy and spread in my project. If in every copy, it resets, it will a crasy thing to control a it will totally lose any possible vantage on using Marionette objects. And is not feasible that my architects edit directly the tree code, is not user friendly and it can not be integrated in the everyday workflow of the office. Any one know if Marionette is already used in the workflow of an Architectural Office?

    Duplicate Marionette Object Bug

    Dear @Marissa Farrell @Alan Woodwell @Pat Stanford If you had a little time, to go through my Marionette Structure, it will be very appreciated your feedback. As I'm starting with Marionette, I need an opinion of more experimented user, regarding the Structure/ Architecture of my Marionette Tree. This is a simple 3D modeling for a rectangular Plasterboard Ceiling with a Cove around. My structure 3D Model flow is organized like this: 1 - Input Values (dimensions) 2 - Simple Math Formulas (Add, Subb, Mult) to get the real demotions of each part 3 - Profile 2D Shape creation (Rectangle node) 4 - Define Attributes of the profile 5 - 3D Shape (Extrude node) 6 - Set Class of the 3D Shape 7 - Apply Texture Basic I repeat this 7 steps all over again for the different 3D elements of the ceiling. This is the right way to do it? I'm doing any thing wrong in the structure? There is any step that I could improve or should do in a different way? There is any limit for the dimension/ complexity of the Marionette Tree? Your opinion on this work will mean a lot to me, as I'm moving on with more Marionette Objects, and I do not want to repeat any error that I could be doing as a beginner Thank you in advance for your feedback. Best regards, Ceiling_V05.vwx

    Duplicate Marionette Object Bug

    Thank You All for the feedback. I already updated to VW2018 and the problem disappear. Now I can Copy, Move, Duplicate with no problem. But when changing the INPUT dimensions in OIP, sometimes it reset all the INPUTS to the original one. This could be turn around changing the INPUT dimensions directly in the CODE tree, but I suppose that is not how should be. Do you have any tip on this?

    Duplicate Marionette Object Bug

    Dear @Pat Stanford I'm using Vectorworks 2017, so you think this is a bug, that is solved in Vectorworks 2018? We have not updated yet in our office, but if the 2018 is more stable in Marionette, thats a good reason to move on to the next level.

    Duplicate Marionette Object Bug

    Dear All, I'm starting with Marionette, and I really believe this could be a great tool. I want to implement Marionette in my Architecture Office, however it looks the Marionette is not very stable, and have strange behavior. This a small example: When I DUPLICATE a simple marionette object, it also duplicate an Input Variable "Dimension A". This does not happen with a simple MOVE, or a COPY/PASTE command. And also if I enter in the marionette object and get out, the Duplicated Input Variable disappear. Is there any one with similar problem? Is there any thing wrong with my Marionette structure? I kindly ask some help/ support from the Forum Team. Hi @Marissa Farrell and @Alan Woodwell could give me some tip/ help on this? Thank You in advance for your help. Best regards Ceiling V01.vwx

    Worksheet Current Layer Criteria

    Dear @michaelkthank you for your feedback. yes, this could do the trick. Could you just help me on this doubts: 1- How can i edit the Criteria? It indicates that need to be edit worksheet formula bar. Where is this? 2 - This criteria Shearch for rectangles in the specific Layer. What would be the Criteria to search in a specific Layer, geometry with Specific Record Data attached? thank you for your help
