  1. Changing the names in zubehor and c_list doesn't change anything. And this code here deletes the sketch style after a 47 was displayed in the message. obj = vs.GetObject( 'Sketch style-1' ) vs.AlrtDialog(vs.GetTypeN(obj)) vs.DelObject(obj)
  2. First of all, sorry for the late reply. The answers helped a lot and the problems could be solved as far as possible. However, new ones have arisen. - With the code from below I try to retrieve all database entries of an object that are stored as text. out = [] for rec in range( vs.NumRecords(obj) ): r = vs.GetRecord(obj, rec + 1) r_name = vs.GetName( r ) fields = [] for fld in range( vs.NumFields(r) ): if vs.GetFldType(r, fld) == 4: fields.append( vs.GetRField(obj, r_name, vs.GetFldName(r, fld) ) ) out.append( fields ) However, this works almost too well, because I also get the IFC data output. In a format that I do not understand, however. [0] = ['{F32360E8-A72D-11ED-8823-0050B6F558F1}', 'GlobalId', '', 'OwnerHistory', '0', 'Name', 'abc', 'Description', '', 'ObjectType', 'Unstyled Wall', 'ObjectPlacement', '0', 'Representation', '0', 'Tag'] [1] = ['42dB'] Is there a way to sort out IFC databases and retrieve the database fields from there separately? - While trying to get a list of all sketch styles I ran into some unexpected behavior. I create the list with the following (greatly simplified) code. def content(type, n): MyList, NumItems = vs.BuildResourceList(type, 0, '') list = [] for i in range(1, NumItems + 1): name_old = vs.GetNameFromResourceList(MyList, i) #h = vs.GetResourceFromList(MyList, i) list.append(name_old) #END for return list #END def zubehör = content(47, 'Linienart') The object type 47 in the last line I get from Marionette. But this object type represents record definitions and not sketch styles. And the record definitions are also output by the upper code and in the output no sketch style appears. Does anyone know where my error is? I also can't find an object type for sketch styles in the appendix. Is it possible that they are handled internally as a record definitions, but the listing recognizes that it is a sketch style and therefore does not output it?
  3. And here is the automatic translation, for all those who have the same problem again. Uncontrolled from DeepL. Hello Flo, you don't necessarily need to program this in the script. It is enough to think of a clever filter that you can use in the table. I have put a part of the Marionette objects in another class (as a filter then the class taken) Marionette object name I tried but did not get to run. If this is not enough you have to rewrite the script to check if the values exist. But I personally don't like the solution with the script. It would be easier to attach a database to the puppet objects and to write the desired "parameters" in the puppet object directly into the database. Then you can also "capture" everything possible in addition e.g. the area of the rectangle etc. Tip: With the node "Parent Pio or now ("Marionette Object" in VW2023) you get the data to the Marionette Object. Without it, the data are attached to the rectangle in the marionette object. Greetings Markus
  4. Hi I would like to build a translator. It should refer only to the document structure. Texts placed in the document can be disregarded. The rest should be translated. For this I have encountered some problems. - Is there an easy way to generate a list that contains all symbols, wall styles, line types, folders, etc.? - What kind of object has the object type 57? I found it by examining the parent object of a folder. Unfortunately, it is not listed in the appendix. - Similar to point 1: Is there a way to loop through all data visualizations. Again, unfortunately, I have not found any documentation. Thanks in advance for the help.
  5. Too bad, I don't know C++. Is there any way to make the listener work in C++ but call a Python script in it? And how complex is the whole thing with the SDK?
  6. Hi all I would like to create a code that is executed when an object is selected. Optimally it would be any object, determined by its name, but if it's easier it could be a PIO. Is this possible (only in Python) and if so are there any examples? Thanks in advance for the answers. Manuel
  7. Not sure if it helps you. But there is a marionette node for selecting symbols.
  8. For the visibilities you can use SetVPClassVisibility. In the function reference you can find it under the group Objects - Groups. There should actually be an object variable for the texts. If I am not mistaken, it should be 1029 - Flip Text. But it has not been tested.

    😀 Puppet node is the DeepL term of a marionette node when translated from German.
  10. Some time ago DomCcreated this Nodes to manipulate the parameters of an Marionettenode.
  11. Some time ago I created a script in the german forum that transfers settings from one viewport to another. Maybe even the English version is online. Unfortunately I never got around to publishing the script here, because it might need some extensions.
  12. Maybe I have an idea. But I'd like to run a few tests of my own before I promise too much. For these tests I would need some more details. - It seems as if you always fill one half of the shelf with plates and the other with glasses and bowls. Is that correct? - What are the diameters of your dishes? - Are there any specifications for your shelf regarding size? For example, only with certain depths?
  13. Are these all individual objects that can be placed completely randomly or would it be possible, for example, to pack the glasses in a predefined block. This block would have a length that could be used again.
  14. At the node level this can't work as far as I know. But mostly a loop can be bypassed. In your case you could divide the length of your shelf by the width of your objects and get the number of objects that fit into your shelf. Now that you know how many objects it takes, you can use a range node and some math to calculate the insertion points and then place the objects. With objects of different widths it gets more difficult, but there should be a solution here as well. Otherwise you will not be able to avoid a user-defined node. Is this about your books or another project?
  15. Because I am using a student version, I can't send you the finished node. So here's the code that does what you want. #MRoth #V1.0 20200523 @Marionette.NodeDefinition class Params(metaclass = Marionette.OrderedClass): #APPEARANCE #Name this = Marionette.Node( 'Get Part Min' ) this.SetDescription( 'Break the list into a list of lists of length n' ) #Input Ports inList = Marionette.PortIn( [], "list" ) inList.SetDescription( "The input list" ) n = Marionette.PortIn( 1, 'nStep' ) n.SetDescription('Number of items per split list') #OIP Controls #Output Ports list = Marionette.PortOut('lists') list.SetDescription( "The result lists" ) mi = Marionette.PortOut('nMin') mi.SetDescription( "The min value per list" ) bo = Marionette.PortOut('iIndex') bo.SetDescription( "A bool that indicates whether it is the min value in the list." ) ind = Marionette.PortOut('bMin') ind.SetDescription( "The indexes of all min values." ) #BEHAVIOR this.SetListAbsorb() def RunNode(self): #inputs list = self.Params.inList.value n = self.Params.n.value #script n = n[0] newList = [list[x:x+n] for x in range(0, len(list), n)] mins = [] bools = [] index = [] for x in range(len(newList)): l = newList[x] m = min(l) mins.append(m) for y in range(len(l)): item = l[y] if m == item: bools.append(True) index.append(n * x + y) else: bools.append(False) #outputs self.Params.list.value = newList self.Params.mi.value = mins self.Params.bo.value = bools self.Params.ind.value = index And here how the node is installed. There are certainly better ways to build the node, but the above one works, which in my opinion, is the most important thing.
  16. The popup node should be located in the Inputs-Intermediate folder.
  17. Some time ago I created a wrapper that inserts a symbol at a 3D coordinate. Symbol 3D.vwx I do not know how to import a symbol from the favorites.
  18. I forgot to tell you. To change the distances you can simply change the mass at d = (2072, 0, 0) #(x, y, z) Dimensions are in mm.
  19. I wrote you four scripts that duplicate an object and move it by the desired distance. Excuse me for bad scripting style. But it should work. Move Right.vsm Move Left.vsm Move Down.vsm Move Down.vsm Move Up.vsm
  20. How do you want to enter the values? In a separate dialog box. In this case I would recommend you to use CTRL + D [Duplicate] and then CTRL + (ALT) + M [Move/Move 3D. If there schould be a command for each direction and length of movement, there will be six commands. But they are quite easy to create.

    Hello everybody I'm looking for a function to set the color of a single character of a text. So exactly the opposite of GetCharColor. I want to install this function in a marionette node. That's why it would have to be a Python command. Thanks for the help.
  22. Hello @Marissa Farrell I would like to take up the question above again. Is there a list of commands somewhere that you have added to the default nodes under #Behavior? Preferably also with effects on the node. I mean code lines, like these: this.SetLinksObjects() this.SetListAbsorb()
  23. If you use the node in a marionette command, you can use it to perform actions on a selected object. Actually Objects by Criteria would work too, but I find this node easier to handle.

    This Node sends an object to the front of the stacking order. If several items are moved foreward, the first item in the list will appear at the bottom, cause the subsequent items are placed in front of the first item.
