  1. Hello, We are looking to improve our worksheets to utilise marionette. Right now we just want to use an existing worksheet template and then amend the worksheet by resetting the column widths to Zero once it finds the totals of any column through out the worksheet. Has anyone found a way to amend existing templates? To customise the template for any project it's thrown into. Thank you
  2. Hello, I am in the middle of assigning IFC within the script to the marionette objects i'm making but ive come across this issue where if i attach a "Custom property Set" it cannot assign more than one specific field at a time. Im not sure if im doing this wrong. If i am then i can correct this and follow that method going forward. I dont understand what could be the issue as i am able to assign multiple property sets within the IFC however when it comes to assigning my "Custom property sets" it just gives an error message and only maps one field. See attached. Thank you. Marionette Custom assign IFC pSet.vwx
  3. Hello, Im coming across this allot and ive had a few work arounds but this is a very simple marionette for a linen room which should not have any issues really. Either I am fundamentally doing something wrong or it could be a bug. It can create a group from the script but again when it makes a Marionette object (PO) it destroys itself. Im hoping someone can take a look at this as ive found this happen a few times for other items i have made. If it's something i am doing then i can nip it in the bud and correct my own errors before i progress further with marionette. Thank you all again for your help. BOHUnitExample.vwx
  4. Thank you both, ive managed to get the hang of it, now just figuring out the asset. Ive followed Alan's file for now, but will look into the move command for the extrude along path. This was great to learn. Thank you again. See attached progress. Office Desk.vwx
  5. Ah I think i get it now, its just ordering the coordinates in a sequence then feeding it into the next action in that order. Ok thats great thank you. I actually found a problem further from this while working on the extrude along path. I am trying to set height for this desk so i can then place legs, i cant seem to figure it out. Can you give a Z location to an extrude along path? Or am i just not getting it. For now ive just placed it into a symbol and given the symbol a height. Thank you agin for all this.
  6. @Marissa Farrell Thank you, very much appreciated. It wasn't making any sense to me, now i know it was just a bug i can continue with the extrude along path ideas. Few things on my mind now, i was hoping to create the profile by marionette by composing lines instead of having the profile in the Vectorworks document i understand the compose node has issues now but until thats resolved is their another way to make it? Finally I have never considered using the ordered list node like this, i'm finding it hard to understand how this works is it possible for you to explain this?. Thank you again.
  7. Hello, I am very new to marionette ive made a few that are working fine. Now I am testing out the "Extrude along path" I am not sure if I have understood it fully. Could someone take a look? I am trying to just generate a line and have the capability to control the line lengths. It makes the group item, however I cant seem to get it to work as a marionette object. Thank you Marionette-ExtrudeAlongpath-OfficeDeskCounterTop.vwx
  8. Hello, I've managed to get back onto scripting and sifted through examples online then made a script which changes the cell text in a worksheet from a design layer pull down menu. However when i select the worksheet image and recalculate it, it then repeats. If i select the individual cell and hit enter it executes once and works fine however the rest of worksheet does not update because the criteria is set to use the cell's result from the script as the layer name to look for. Thankfully i've had allot of references on here to refer to but i'm very new to this so i totally understand if it is not laid out correctly. Any suggestions, anyone? Thank you Test Worksheet script.vwx
  9. Hello, Is there a way of creating a section viewport without navigating to it immediately after creation? I am trying to create multiple section viewports to then arrange on 1 sheet layer. Is there a way of creating more than one section viewport at a time, removing the tediousness of constantly having to navigate back to the design layer to repeat the process again? I suppose it would be a bit like the "navigate back to” aspect of an existing viewport, only in reverse. I don’t believe “Create Viewport” can do it either, which is frustrating when I want to create multiple viewports. Thank you
  10. Hi, This sounds like your doing everything right, unless its a class issue that looks like a visual bug, i would recommend forwarding that to Vectorworks
  11. Hi, It might be worth checking if the tag your using has the correct tag fields assigned to them to pull that record data. Resource manager> Right click (Your Selected Data tag)> Select Edit > "Edit Tag Layout" ( At bottom) > Select the Text > (On Shape Tab) Select "Define Tag Field" at bottom From this check that the calculated field is showing the correct record you want. If this still persists it may be worth following above and make a new Data tag just incase by duplicating what you have to keep your existing data tag layout. Hope this helps
  12. Hi, As far as I am aware through trial and error I have found it is not possible to attach Data tags to Symbols holding custom record data within a Symbol from the Sheet layer Viewports annotations. Is their a way to do this that i'm just not aware of? So far i have not found a solution, this tool has allot of potential i would have assumed that this would be possible already. Please see example file attached. Thank you Example Data Tag.vwx
  13. Hi again, Would it be possible for someone to whip up a quick example of how to script this so i can start, ive been trying to understand scripting and i cant seem to get my head around it. Ive been trying to figure out how the scripting logic works and learning python from UDEMY however i feel i still have a long way to go. Any takers?
  14. Thank you for the reply, Ive just started to look into scripting. I understand worksheets/ functions and have made a number of intelligent worksheets for the company. However i am not sure which scripting language to start with? Any recommendations? Ive tried to look on the forums for the answer yet nothings come up. As for the "User proofing" im starting to understand what you mean. So i wrote a statement to use as a method to work to. Statement as follows; Search selected 'Worksheet' for 'Database headers' Select 'Layer' (Message box shows - drop down box which shows all current layers within Vectorworks document.) Store [Inputted Layer] Search for first 'Database header' criteria If 'Database header' contains 'Layer' Criteria Then, If layer is different to [Inputted layer] replace layer criteria with [Inputted layer] Else, move to next "Database header" Once all "Database headers" have been checked Message box "Worksheet database criteria amended" Click 'OK' to end script I am hoping this is the right simple logic to start with. Thank you again.
  15. Just checking, Is there a script/ marionette anywhere that can set the layer for multiple database headers within one worksheet without having to change it manually. Just to select the worksheet run the script > Pop message shows up, select the layer> click ok > Done ??
