  1. This is a very old post, but I´m really struggling here with the DWG export and can´t understand how it "still" works so awfully. As @Nina Ivanova said, the export "look allright" in Autocan´t viewers, but the reallity is they are NOT right. A single different block for each detail means that the whole Layer from which the detail was built will be copie for each detail. That situation made us have a single detail sheet with 10-12 details come up to over 60Mb in size just because the main section was big and allready detailed... Our only option so far is to explode the views into groups and then export, but that is absolutely contraty to any BIM process because we loose the automatic relation between model and plans. I know VW is powerfull in the "data visualization" but instead of multiplying the sections endlessly I´d rather loose some of this might and get a real solid outcome that is: - DWG Modelspace with the plans in 2D as we lay them in our Layers. - Layout with cropped view of the Model Space. Remember that DWG CAN control the visibility in a per view situation... Does this have to go into wishlist to get into consideration? BTW. the thing with the duplicate export in that a detailed view export outputs the class of the main container and also the classes of the components of top of it is another strong ISSUE...
  2. Hi Mrs. Farrell. I was sondering if you could somehow rescue the Marionette? I´m trying to build an intelligent object in the form of a truncated pyramid and I´m really struggling with the solid modelling and the construction planes.
  3. Thanks! I already solved it. I had to uncheck the "use story height" (I think is the translation from german).
  4. Hello All! I´m trying ot get the hang of creating customn wrappers, commands and objects, but I´m hitting a brickwall here. I manage to build a simple "extrude rectangles" network, but as soon as I wrap it, it doesn´t work anymore. From the non-working wrapper is evident I won´t be able to build a commnad... I´d very much like to build commands with the "Sel=true" criteria. Any hints to make them work if and when I solve the first problem?? I attach the simple examples just in case.OBJ by Criteria.vwx
  5. This thread is fairly old but I guess the process still stands and I can´t seem to replicate it. I create a Network that produces the desired geometry ✔️ I convert it to a wrapper and this wrapper to a Marionette Object ✔️ When I try to convert this Object to an Intelligent Symbol, the option is grey!! 😭😭 Am I doing something wrong here??
  6. Vielen, vielen Dank! Es ist echt toll und erklärt viele Sachen das für mich "kömisch" wären.
  7. Thank you very much! I got to get used to the Marionette way. Coming from MANY years of "vices" in Grasshopper needs a lots of efforts to get used to it. Will test your network in the office tomorrow, thanks!!
  8. @m.graf I´ve been working with it, but relies too much on symbols. I want to control the geometry through the hole...
  9. I discovered by dumb luck that a prism "object node" made with Marionette will "drill a hole" in a wall when you attach the prism to it. What I don´t get is how to define the parameters of the frame. I thought I had it but the only one that is right is the "Dicke" (Thickness) everything else makes no sense. Can it be because I modelled it "flat" (XY) and turned it afterwards? How can I define a vertical rectangle from the beginning? Thanks in advance!!
  10. Hello! I´d like to create a Node Object or Command with this shape. The geometry is fairly simple, rectangle with thickness and minor offsets. What I can´t wrap my head around is how to build the base network for the two methods. For the NodeObject I´d like to build it from two "draggable" points. How can I input them in VW and reference them in a Network? For the Command method, I´d build it with two clicks on the opposite corners of the pre-built window-set (Windows are built from several joint modules). How can I reference "clicks" in a network that will be later a wrapper and then a command? Thanks a lot in advance for any help, it will be very much appreciated!!
  11. I got the examples from Mrs. Farrell, decomposed them to investigate and tried to "compose" them again and everything disappeared! Am I doing something wrong with the selection order? 1. Wrapper, 2. Curve, 3. R-Click on wrapper convert to Object Node...
  12. I feel really clumsy. I can´t seem to be able to create connections between the nodes. Anytime I try to click and drag from the "white little circle", the node gets selected and dragged. Am I missing some particular "method" here? Thanks in advance...
  13. Thanks again Mrs @Marissa Farrell it worked like a charm. I´m currently unable to get Dummy End or Priunt Debug nodes to work, so I can´t decypher, and I´m really eager to learn what did you set up and why between the output of the test repeat and the sequence of numbers, I guess you got a zippd "line of text" and you decomposed and reordered it. Right? IF I knew python (big if) would it be possible to code a node that took two lists and concatenated the strings in each place? I´m attaching also a file with the "not working" debugging components. NO DEBUG.vwx
  14. I´ll study your second file in depth tomorrow Mrs. @Marissa Farrell thanks a lot! I´m just anticipating a question. How would I deal with executing a Marionette over a bunch of selected objects? I tried making a wrapper out of the network and saving it as a command in hope this would allow me to select and then execute, but it hasn´t been the case. Any hints in that direction? Thanks again! After this week and a half of hard VW inmersion got wonderful feelings from the community support behind it!
