    vLookup function

    Sorry, I forgot to upload the latest version of the VLookup script. I'm attaching it now. The beginning of the script contains the example line to insert in a worksheet: =RUNSCRIPT(120; 'Rapporten Architectuur/WSVlookup.py'; A1; 'A1..A5'; 2) You can change the formula to: =RUNSCRIPT(120; 'WSVlookup.py'; A1; 'A1..A5'; 2) Where: 120: path to script folder (Library:Defaults:Reports_Schedules) 'WSVLookup.py': script file A1: Reference to the lookup cell 'A1..A5': Reference to the lookup range, you can reference to another worksheet using 'sheetname:A1..A5' 2: Column number to return WSVLookup.py.zip

    Plugin Menu

    Commands can only be in a menu, objects can only be in a palette. Commands and objects (like in parametric objects) can be created via the plugin editor, check the "extra" menu.
  6. To write back you can also use vs.SetRField(str(yourvalue)) str() is the Python way of turning a value into a string.
  7. Is there a way to get the height of a 3D volume at a given x, y location? What I need is a way to get the top Z height - bottom Z height at a given x, y position. Any idea that could help is welcome!

    How to embed user nodes in Marionette tool list

    After creating the marionette node, turn it into a symbol with the "convert to parametric object" option on. This way the node will become a "red" symbol. To create a category, just create a symbol folder and move the node symbol in there. To add your own nodes to the default library, insert it into a Vectorworks file and store that file in the (user) folder "Users/<username>/Appdata/Roaming/Nemetschek/Vectorworks/2018/Libraries/Defaults/Marionette/". Update you library and you're done.

    Disappearing columns

    We’ll need the Vectorworks file to be able to solve this issue.

    multiple intersections

    Select all trusses and add solids first. Then intersect solids.

    vLookup function

    The from data is in spreadsheet cells. I didn't need it from database rows... Sounds interesting though.

    vLookup function

    I only used it in a database row. But I think it should also work in a spreadsheet row. Thanks for the manual!

    vLookup function

    I recently created my own vlookup function. See attached file. Check the remarks at the beginning for the way to use it. WSVLookup.py.zip

    One year later... still having problem with stories

    Split levels can be done by stories. I usually create multiple story levels for each level type: top of structure finished floor s_top of structure s_finished floor ... Then I create multiple wall styles: base to base, split to split and if needed base to split and split to base. Same for floors.

    model origin in section viewport

    I'm trying to create a kind of benchmark that could also modify the Story levels. I can do that, but then the section viewport needs to be positioned so that the origin of the model in the viewport matches the origin of the sheet layer. I'm trying to modify it so that it would work also when, the section viewport is positioned elsewhere on the sheet layer. I have been thinking about the elevation benchmark tool, but I can't read the indicated height value from the PIO object, there's no parameter for that...
