  1. Hi. Is it possible to create a custom dialog box in marionette that prompts a user for input? I’m working on a script for a custom wardrobe. I’d like the user to be asked the question “Enter the number of sections” if the user enters 4, it should then prompt the user for dimensions of each of the 4 sections. if the user enter 3, it should prompt the user for dimensions of only 3 sections. is this possible in marionette? thank you
  2. Hi. I'm trying to convert this polyline into a closed polygon. However, it doesn't seem to work. I tried using the convert to polygon node but it doesn't work. Grab Bar - Backup.vwx
  3. To clarify the issue I'm having: I'm trying to figure out how to use the control Geometry node. However, I'm not having much luck with it. Does the control geometry node work only when it's connected to one operation? For example, Control Geometry>Get point on Poly>locus. Can this same control geometry node be connected to another node like Control Geometry>move while simultaneously being connected to the previous Get Point on Poly node? If not, what's the possible work around for this? Attached is the file I'm working on but the control geometry node doesn't work when connected to 2 nodes. I converted the wrapper and polyline to an object node and did those steps but only the corner vertices get created. The other points on the poly don't appear. I'm stuck trying to figure this out
  4. Hi, I've been trying to divide a polyline (drawn in vectorworks) using a marionette script. I want the script to first divide the polyline into equal parts and create a locus point as well as a locus point on each of the corner vertices. However it only creates the corner vertices and doesn't create the points on the polyline. I might not be using the control geometry node properly in this one as it isn't producing the result I want it to. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank You Geometry divide.vwx
  5. Thanks @Stephan Moenninghoffand @m.graf I did try breaking down my network into parts and wrapping them up, but it still caused issues with data flow. I did put a pass node at the end and beginning of the wrapper but it still didn't work well. I'll try what @m.grafsuggested about editing the pass node. I did a lot of trial and error yesterday and for some parts it worked but for other parts it didn't and it just feels that my approach was very "trial and error" based and was just down to luck if it worked. There doesn't seem to be any guide or tutorials on how to effectively use wrappers for large networks.
  6. Hi. I'd like to wrap my network (about 380 nodes) into a single node. However, once, i wrap it, it doesn't work anymore. Is there more to wrapping a network than just right-clicking and selecting "wrap marionette network" that I don't know about. Also, when I use the "pass" node, it makes my geometry behave weirdly. I'd like to know your thoughts. Thank You
  7. @Stephan Moenninghoff I want the symbol to be placed on all the points irrespective of the dimension (the dimension can be anything from 6' to infinity). The script works for any dimension except for when the input is 50'. When the input dimension is 50', for some reason, the last point doesn't get created and the symbol doesn't get placed on that point when logically, it should (as it has been working for every other input dimension)
  8. @Stephan Moenninghoff That only worked when I input the dimension as 50' but when I input any other dimension, it creates an additional point which I don't want.
  9. @Stephan Moenninghoff and @Pat Stanford Gentlemen, My script works perfectly when I input any value other than 50'. It's only when I input 50' as the dimension in the "Rectangle width" node that the last point doesn't get created. I have attached my script and images to try an explain this. It seems like there's something that I haven't quite done right. Thanks Issue with 50'.vwx
  10. @Stephan Moenninghoff Thanks a lot for your suggestion but for what I am trying to achieve, @Pat Stanford suggestion really worked perfectly for me. I really appreciate all the help from both of you, to a marionette newbie like me. Cheers!
  11. @Stephan Moenninghoff Yes, I did do that. However, I don't want the symbol to be placed on the line at the symbol's current center point. I'd like to change the symbol's point of inclusion. Let me know if I'm making any sense. Thank You
  12. @Pat Stanford and @Stephan Moenninghoff Your suggestions were great. Pat's suggestion did however work for me for what I was trying to achieve. However, I'd like to know if it's possible to change the co-ordinates of a symbol in marionette? I used DomC's "Create Symbol" node but the coordinates are not what I want them to be. I want to be able to create a symbol and place them evenly on the points of a line you just helped me solve. Your help has been much appreciated. Thank You
  13. Hi, I would like to know if it's possible to divide a line into a segments of a finite length. For example, if I have a line of 42'6" and I want to divide it into segments of 4' each with the last line being 2'6". There doesn't seem to be a divide by length node in marionette (which is available on grasshopper). Any ideas on how this can be done? Thank You
