  1. Hi @jimi123, Tiles is a Marionette script. As such it doesn't require installation. Simply download the English vwx file plus the manual (pdf file) and follow the instructions.
  2. Hi @AlHanson, the If node should work fine. Could you please the check the checkbox in the object info palette of the Bool nodes? If the checkbox is ticked, the Bool node returns "True" as is indicated by the text "True" right after the checkbox. If the strange behavior of the network(s) persists, please upload the vwx-file with the information which Vectorworks version you are using.
  3. I believe I have a solution for you. Use SelectObj with the criteria (IFC_ENTITY='IfcMechanicalFastener') to get all IFC entities that even could have the field "Tekla Bolt". Then make a loop to go through all selected objects using IFC_GetPsetProp to check for the value of "Tekla Bolt".
  4. Hi @David O, I don't think there's an easy way around this. What kind of solid are we talking here? Primitive solids like cuboids or cylinders? Are they tilted in any direction or in a right angle?
  5. Hi @WhoCanDo, have you tried writing 'Tekla Bolt.Bolt Name' instead?
  6. Hi Niels, thank you for your message. We are aware of the issue. Currently the node doesn't work in either wrappers or Marionette Objects. Our developers are working on resolving this. As soon as I receive information about it, I will post it here.
  7. @Olaf Pfeifer Maybe this is what you are looking for:
  8. @Amorphous - Julian Hi Julian, thank you for your feedback. Being responsible for the Marionette tool "Tiles", I will take your suggestions into consideration going forward. Please send me a message with all necessary information of your setup, so I can try and replicate the behavior you are experiencing. I did a quick test just now on my laptop using a square of 20 * 20 meters and the pattern "English Bond". It took about 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
  9. Sorry @caboom, I'm not sure where the problem is. Maybe @Marissa Farrell can help.
  10. Thanks, this is very helpful. Unfortunately I couldn't find any documentation for this command. It can probably be used for all kinds of things.
  11. Hiya folks, I'm trying to get a new node running, which is supposed to unlock all input objects, but for some reason it won't work. Who has a good idea? unlock-node.vwx
  12. I noticed the difference between the symbol's content being used in the example file for "Symbol to Group" and that in yours is the plane reference. Yours is "Screen", while the one in "Symbol to Group" is "Symbol Definition". I think that is where you should look into.
  13. Dear architects and interior designers, in case you missed it: about a week ago the overhauled Marionette Tool "Tiles" was updated with some minor tweaks to version 2.0.1. It's available both in English and German. This tool will help you when planning tiles in the context of backsplash, reflected ceiling plan, walkway/terrace surfaces or facades/brick walls. 20 ready-to-use patterns allow you to get up and running quickly and easily. With the help of an extensive manual you can create and save as many new patterns as you like. You can download the tool in the Marionette Gallery: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/files/file/211-tiles-verlegewerkzeug/ If you like the tool, please give it a thumbs-up (and a review). If you have questions or feedback, please write us and email or a message. Thanks!
  14. Nomi, good you figured it out. 🙂 But in case somone else wants to know: Manually downloading python libraries isn't necessary. You just have to replace the links in the node* with the latest version. * In the file VoronoiObj_v2017_CrossPlatform_MFarrell.vwx it's the node called "Voronoi". With Scipy it's exactly the same as with Numpy: find the file repository, choose the right file and replace the links.
  15. Hi Nomi, welcome to the forum. If you are getting an error message, that numpy and scipy cannot be installed, it is most likely due to an incompatibility with the python version. When you look at the file links inside the voronoi node, you will notice, that in the file names it says "cp33", which stands for "CPython 3.3". VW 2019 is shipped with CPython 3.5 though. Here you can find the latest numpy files: https://pypi.org/project/numpy/#files Mac: numpy-1.16.4-cp35-cp35m-macosx_10_6_intel.macosx_10_9_intel.macosx_10_9_x86_64.macosx_10_10_intel.macosx_10_10_x86_64.whl Windows: numpy-1.16.4-cp35-cp35m-win_amd64.whl Using these should solve the problem.
  16. Taproot, welcome to the amazing world of Marionette! If you prefer a more visual way of selecting a symbol, you could try the custom node "Get Symbol from Folder":
  17. Extrudes are possible, but have not been fully tested, yet. Those are planned for the next big version 3.0.0, but I cannot say when this will be happening. Please write me a private message and tell me what you want to do. I might be able to help you out.
  18. To close the loft, you have to add the first curve (POP FRONT) to the end of the curve list (APPEND).
  19. Hi GRZEGORZ, you're almost there already. To make the connections between the two circles, you need the Polygon3D node, which takes lists of points. List of points in your case would be point pairs. To get those first ZIP both outputs of the Divide Curve nodes and then CHUNK this big list into lists of two elements (pairs). Antonio
  20. Hi KroVex, 1) You can simply use a valve node for this purpose. By default it passes the item when True and blocks the output when False. If you need it the other way round (pass when False, block when True), you can use the not node to invert the boolean value. 2) I have no answer for this one, but I would like to see this in Marionette as well.
  21. Dear Marionette community, after some time, we have finally come around to finalizing and uploading some of the nodes that were created/improved in order to solve various challenges for customers. And we will continue uploading more goodies next week. Here's a list of what we uploaded this week: Get System Info With a single click this node provides the user some of the most commonly used operating system and Vectorworks information. There's an option to see the information as an alert additionally to getting the data via out-ports. For more experienced users, this node can serve as a template for their own custom nodes and networks when system information is needed. Ungroup to List This node returns all objects from groups chunked into separate lists according to the group they were previously part of. Get Bounding Box v2 This node will provide you with the coordinates of all four corners and the dimensions (width and height) of the bounding box. Random X n (spoken "Random times n") Depending on the input this node returns random whole or floating-point numbers and rounds them to the number of decimals set in the OIP. Through iN you can set the number of random numbers you need. Get Holes in Poly This node returns all holes and the outer poly of any given polygon as new separate geometries. Please have a look, let us know how you like it and send us a message if you find a bug or have ideas to make it better. 🙂 I wish you a wonderful weekend, Antonio
