  1. Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere on this board. I'm building a marionette script to build platform systems and other complex structures from existing symbols. When symbols are placed, I can move them on the XY, but not the Z axis, even when I input 3D points into the symbol marionette. Is there an easy way to place symbols at a Z height, or move them on the Z-Axis through existing marionette plugins?
  2. Once again I'm diving into using marionette tools to speed up my drawing process. I'm looking to build a marionette sequence that can build drawing labels as opposed to using the stock drawing label. Optimally I'd like the tool to be able to: -Pull the drawing title from the viewport -Pull the current view (Top/Front/Side etc) from the Viewport -Pull the scale from the viewport -Fill in the drawing # in the OIP -Place and rotate an arrow symbol indicating the upstage direction Has anyone tackled something like this before? It doesn't seem immediately easy to build something like this with the stock marionette toolset.
  3. @Antonio LandsbergerThanks! This is a really helpful plugin.
  4. I'm building a marionette plugin to automatically build platforms from predefined platform leg and deck symbols, and have run into some trouble sorting out symbol selection for the plugin. Optimally, I'd like to populate a dropdown from a list of symbols in a certain folder - if our legs are in one folder, the plugin could pull all of those symbols into a dropdown in the OIP. If this is not possible, I'd also be open to a dropdown of strings corresponding to our symbol library. Are either of these possible with the existing marionette toolkit? I've found mixed information on dropdown lists for strings.
  5. I have a series of 3D truss symbols for different lengths and styles of truss, and recently I've started adding 2D Top, Front and Side views to these symbols to make my drafting a bit cleaner. I often draw by mirroring large sections of truss, and I've found that labels (specifically data tags with the truss name and length) in the 2D symbols flip themselves if I mirror the truss objects when I draw them. Playing with the 'adjust flipped text' settings seems to do nothing to change how the text renders. Besides changing how I draw truss layouts, is there any easy way to keep this text oriented in one direction when I mirror truss objects?
