    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    hello sbarrett thx for this. I will need to dedicate more time for understanding the topic. in your last file (..._Marionette2) I can see the marionette as network of nodes. in the former version it is "wrapped". Could you tell me the difference between them? Michael

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    hey, ok, if I get it right, marionette does get values from worksheets. I think, I am able to solve this with a worksheet, myself. but, i have no idea, how to make this work in marionette. is there anywhere a tutorial around, from which I could learn how to get values from worksheets and bring them into a stamp symbol? our support in Switzerland does not help customers with marionette issues.

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    hello sbarrett thx for the clip. i understand the method now. may I ask you another question? as I understand, this marionette does get the values from each and every room with the same RoomID... but, what if we want to get only the Rooms from a specific layer? is that possible? In my case I have some split-level apartments. their area is divided amongst different layers. but, all spaces do have the same RoomID. how can we tell the marionette stamp on level 1 to show only the area of the relating spaces? moreover, with the help of D. Corpataux we developed a script, that does update the apartment area tag automatically for all rooms. I'll attached it here. VW Apartment Area v2.vwx

    Hello, seems realy interesting. But: I am not able to open this file in VW 2018 SP4. Why is this so? Mi&D

    @sbarrettHello, I started looking into the file you've posted. I've put some comments on your text message. Could you please give me some hints regarding this. have made a script that I think does what you are asking. It takes the total area from the worksheet and writes it to the Additional Info 2 field of the correct space. It works on all the spaces in the document. I have wrapped the network and given it the name "Apply Apartment Area to Spaces." It works, but the space tags (>what is a tag?) do not update automatically - they have to be "bumped." (>what is a bumping?) What worked for me was to select all of the spaces, and choose the correct space label from the dropdown (>which dropdown list do you mean, where can i find it?) list (even if it is already selected). This will update the tag to show the correct info. VW Rooms only_NvdS_Marionette.vwx

    Another Feedback, Marissa: whenever I turn visible all classes, the Marionette shows up again. How come? before that, all classes related to marionette have been on...

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    here is the problem with marionette stamp again: I go from a layout into the construction layer. - NB: there is no plan rotation. - I copy the marionette from one construction layer to another. marionette stamp doesn't appear. as I do "zoom all", the rulers on the edges of the drawing area go far out from the origin... in the info palette "marionette object" is still active. I do "select all" another time, but only the objects close to the origin are activated, the marionette stamp is not taken in consideration. but it is still there...like a ghost ...

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    Hey! Thx for reply. We have reset the user origin, so that it is equal to Vectorworks origin. What sounds important to me is your expression "while running a marionette script". That means, we can still keep on working in rotated plan, but at the moment we run the script, we must take care, that the plan angle is 0° - correct?

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    hello sbarrett, we have a big issue with marionette: there is a problem with rotated plans ("Planrotation" in Swiss VW) and if the user-defined Zero-Point (Benutzernullpunkt) is not identical with the Vectorworks-Zero Point, and if the plan is rotated: every time the Marionette Stamp is regenerated (or if we replace the symbol) it will be placed far out from its original position. in my case more than 30000 miles away. We think that the conflict is due to Zero-Point, Rotation angle and Center of the object. Do you think you have an idea, of how we can solve this problem in marionette? cheers, Mi&D

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    hello nicowanderschaaf, i had a look at your file. It is not this, what I needed. I need a tool, that does automatically summarize all Spaces with the same Room ID. You just wrote the area by hand in the table. I have hundreds of apartments to provide with that information. I don't want to insert all the data by hand. I send you back the file with my worksheet which does calculate the apartment area. The Formula for it is: =FLÄCHE(((R IN ['Space']) & ('Space'.'11_Room ID'='2201'))) You've posted above a marionette, which does "get cell values". I would like to get this marionette in my file running. It should get the values from column B (Apartment area) and write it into a Worksheet or into a Room Stamp. Do you think, that this is possible? Unfortunately, I don't have enough Skills in Marionette to program this. I hope you can help me with it. thx , Mi&D VW Rooms only_NvdS.vwx
