  1. Hello everybody....


    I'm trying to do a script in marionette, that only shows a part of the value.

    For Example, i want to do a combination of 2 values.


    Number: 04

    Story name: 01OG

    my Goal: 01(OG)+04 = 0104


    I need to keep the only 2 number (01) of my value (01OG)


    something like the Vectorworks Formula by the output mapping LEFT([...],2)


    Someone has an idea ?

  2. Hello everybody,


    I try to do a mapping for my IFC, but it doesn't work.


    Can someone help me ?


    IF(([Style.Pset_DoorCommon_IsExternal] = 'TRUE'), 'E3.2', 'G1.4') 


    Datenmanager (in German)






    Door Style Settings




  3. Hello, I'm here again.


    @Marissa Farrell


    I need your help.


    I have an Issue with the opening in the wall of doors.

    If I take the values of *Door CW*, the result is with e-01m or e00m as unit.

    If I split the unit from number, the information is lost. 

    For example


    9.2e-01m should be 0.92m

    1.02e00m should be 1.02m


    In my marionette node, the result is 9.2 and 1.02 and not 0.92 and 1.02...


    How can I find a solution for that, or where can I find the opening height and lenght of the wall opening from a door ?







  4. Hello everybody,

    Why is vectorworks 2019 working worse than the 2018.

    I tried more than 1 hour to figure out, why my section doen't look like like I want it.

    Why lines are missing by my door in VW19 ? ich check all Attributes bei the Walls and the Doors and I didn't find anything.

    Could someone helps me ? I don't want lined between two hatchings....


    Best regards...

  5. Hello everybody !


    Perhaps someone can help me.


    How can I close a Wall with the "simple" representation ?


    See Pictures :

    A. Wallsettings  : End of the wall : attributes from the shell 

    B. Wallsettings : End of the wall : attributes from the wall.


    A. Complicated representation: The Attibutes are OK (Concrete 0.50)

    B. Simple representation: the Attributes are OK   (Withe 0.25)


    How can I have a good solution ?

    or how can I close the wall by the simple representation  + End of the wall : attributes from the shell


    Thank you for your help








  6. Hello,

    If I do a section in the middle of the building, the hatch doesn't merge.

    If it's outside, it works.... und that issue appeared only in VW 2019, it worked in VW 2018 !!!

  7. Hello,


    I have a lot of Wraps I have to run before I export my IFC File. (about 25 Scripts)

    - Is is possible to make a "Mother Wrap" who runs all the wraps in a specific order ?


    Best regards,




  8. Thank you very much for your help...


    I have another question:

    How can I use the Node "Objs by Crit" for a Column ?

    PON='Column' or T=Column  PON='Säule'

    doesn't work...


    The same question for a Door / Window / Fassade !?


    Thank you so much for your Help...

  9. Hello everyone,

    I need to export some values with the Datenmanager in IFC format.


    How can I change the precision of a number ?

    for Example, 0.30 instead of 0.30000000 or  m3 instead of cm3


    Thank you you for your Help,
