    Data Tag - Materials of a Symbol

    Hi everybody! I Kindly ask help to this Forum Community help on this point: - It is possible to have Data Tag refering to the different materials applied in a Symbol? The idea is to have: 1 - Data Tag in a Section Viewport Annotation of symbol 2 - Identify several Materials of the Symbol (attached drawing) 3 - The Data Tags automatically update if we change on of the Materials (Example: From White Leather to Black Leather) Something similar to the attached drawing. Thank you for your help. Looking forward from some help/ suggestion

    Hello, I wold also love to ave an Automatic Index Pages Number, as we have in Word or Pages. This would be a great help in projects with 50 drawing sheets. Any one could help us or at least give us any tip?

    Architects BIM/2D/3D Workflow

    I confirm everything said by @line-weight. I also advise to work in 3D so far as you can go. In small formats, we are going until 1:20 detail. Then if necessary do Detailed Drawings separate at 1:5 or 1:2 scale at 2D Having everything in 3D will cost a lot of time in the beginning, but it will pay back a lot more in the long run (layout modifications, adjust, re works, etc). Please note this is only valid if you have many similar projects where you can re use over and over the same library of objects (doors, windows, furniture) i hope i could help.

    Texture Size

    @Alan Woodwell and @Stephan Moenninghoff Thank you a LOT for your support. I would not do it without your tips. I’m moving on with Marionette!

    Texture Size

    This node only affect the Mapping of the Object, not the entire texture of the file, correct. I'm asking this because my objective is to correctly apply wood texture on a furniture (several pieces), and on this I will have wood veins in several different directions (using always the same wood texture). Once again, thank you for your help.

    Texture Size

    @Stephan Moenninghoff I believe I understand how this node Work. If for instance I want to rotate the Texture 90 degrees I should introduce in the SET TEXTURE MAP hObj - Object to control Type: Bolean iSelector - 4 (rotate2D) itemValue - 90 If I want to OffsetX the texture 15 meters, I should introduce a second SET TEXTURE MAP node with hObj - Object to control Type: Bolean iSelector - 1 (OffsetX) itemValue - 15 (meters) Please confirm if is this?

    Texture Size

    @Stephan Moenninghoff Tank you very much for your fast reply. Looking at your BOX object, I identify that the NODE that control the texture is the "SET TEXTURE MAP". I do not know if there is any documatantion explaining how this node work? What I need is to control offsetX, offsetY, scale2D, rotate. This will enter in the iSelector input. Do you know how this data should be input? There are several value that will enter in the same input!? How should be done? Thank you very much for your support/ help.

    Texture Mapping with Marionette

    It is possible to mapping with Marionette. When I apply an texture to an Object, I do not have any control of it (rotation, scale). There is any Marionette Node that control the Mapping of the Texture similar to what we found in the Render tab of each object. Some node where we can control the Scale, Offset H, Offset V, Rotation, Repeat, Flip. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Marionette Objects Relentlessly Reset

    @willofmaine I m giving Marionette a 3th chance with the Vectorworks 2019. Let see how it go!

    Texture Size

    Hi, do you get any solutions for these? I’m having the same problem (control the size and rotation of an texture). You have found any additional nodes help in the last Vectorworks versions ?

    Applying and editing a texture map in marionette

    Hi @Alan Woodwell, very good work on Marionette, and thank you for share all the files and you knowledge I'm trying to apply textures in marionette, but I do not know how to control it. How can I control the mapping of the texture (Scale, Offset H, Offset V, Rotation, Flip, Repeat)? There is any special node for this? In your Marionette Frame 2, when we start to introduce deferents sizes, the picture do not fit or even rotate in a vertical format. Do you have found any solution for this? There are new nodes in the Vectorworks 2019? Thank you for your help

    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.
  16. 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?
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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)?

    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

    Hello, There is any way to have a Current Layer Criteria in a Data Worksheet? The objective is to get Data (ex:floor area) from the same Layer where the Data Worksheet is inserted , whitout need to insert the name of the layer in the criteria. This will aloud to get data from a specific layer (excluding all the other layers) just dropping the worksheet on the target layer. thank you in advance from any input>

    Worksheet Current Layer Criteria

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