    Dovetail Detail

    Version 0.1


    Features: Creates a two-dimensional dovetail detail using the standard method for dovetail joints. Available in German and English. Both objects inside the file. Known Issues: Go easy on the sliders! I haven't had the time to build in the appropriate safety-nets. Lousy bit of Marionetteering on my part here but there have been a few requests from local users and it works pretty well if you don't overdo it with the dimensions.

    Parametric Books

    Version 2.2


    Features: Places books from a designated symbol folder in a box ("shelf") Eliminates books that are too tall or wide for the box Allows to randomize the sequence of placement within each book collection Option to repeat the list to fill long shelves Six different types of random angles or all straight Offset from shelf edge (Random Max/Min) Allows for any number of stacks in-between standing books Number of books per stack (Random Max/Min) Offset and angles for stacked books (Random Max/Min) Option to have only stacks, no upright books Known Issues: The gap between angled books and stacks is not correct. I won't fix it ūüôā IMPORTANT *** Configure your books using the Marionette instance provided in the document. Then, make a copy. Ungroup that copy to lock its values. Start over. This will speed up your workflow considerably and you won't have to wait for each Marionette instance to recompile ***

    Homemade CNC

    JFYI interiorcad has an SVG export for 3D parts. Here's the "V" in interiorcad and as an SVG-file. The SVG has the routing contours inside the pockets, that's why the V is striped. We usually need it to export graphical information of 3D parts to third party software, in case it is needed. %22V%22.vwx Bauteil1_Haupt.svg.zip

    TV All-in-One

    Version 1.0.0


    No need to keep different size TV symbols any more with this handy Marionette. The screen image is adjusted automatically to the size of the screen and standard screen sizes can be chosen from a popup-menu. Features: Generates a TV set at standard sizes or at a user-defined custom size The "Automatic Size" option will fit the maximum available size into the given Box ("Shelf"). Choose from different Images to be shown on screen Add a frame in black gloss or aluminium Option to use surround light (aka "Ambilight") Wall mounted (centre of box) or free standing Can be used inside an interiorcad cabinet and will automatically adjust its size to the available space inside its box

    user folder in dropbox/cloud?

    One more word on this: if two resources/files/plug-ins with the same name exist in both your user folder and your WGF, VWX will first pull resources from your user folder, then your WGF. So, you need to make sure that you save new template files, resources or plug-ins to the WGF and delete those files from your user folder.

    user folder in dropbox/cloud?

    Do not put your user folder in the DropBox. It will mess up activation and cause other issues. Use a workgroup folder for what you want. I have the same setup and sync all my settings, templates and other VWX-related resources in the WGF, which lives in my DropBox. It works flawlessly. HTH.

    Version 1.0.0


    Adjustable lidded box. The box can be resized and the lid height and offset can be set. Features: Textures of lid will adjust with lid rim A printed logo will replace the label holder if space gets tight (Adjust or replace the texture to change the placeholder logo) dimensions are always outer dimensions, regardless of lid offset (box will shrink if lid offset is increased) Box and drum insertion reference is always front for convenient placement on a shelf Textures and label holder symbol are contained within the marionette script so it fully supports cut/copy/paste between documents "Reset on Move" is OFF

    Smart Valve

    I really like having the Valve but I needs it to be smarter. Could an option be added that portions of networks joining after the Valve are not affected? The Valve currently disables too much and could be used much more often if this was possible: In this case I want the dialog to pop up only if the valve before it has been enabled. Currently, the Valve kills my entire network downstram of it. Is that necessary? Could the Valve please also disable controls in the OIP? If a control comes after a Valve, this would be an elegant way of hiding it. Thank you!

    how to create a knife bevel

    Ah, I like a good modelling challenge. Here's another take. Hope it helps! Knife.mp4

    Why does my section viewport render like this?

    @jtempleton did you extrude open polygons or polylines to make objects? They can cause this.
  11. Thanks, @Gunther this may help until the issue is resolved!
  12. Here are two viewports rendered with OpenGL (top) and Renderworks (bottom) on a client machine (left) and the same viewports rendered on my computer (right). The client is quite desperate because he is getting these black backgrounds in both OpenGL and Renderworks intermittently. He is also seeing white (RGB 255,255,255) areas in rendered images turning black on his computers but nobody is able to reproduce the behaviour anywhere else. Any ideas? Thanks!
  13. As for the original topic of this thread: I am still fine. No occurence of black viewports with my workflow. So, definitely better.

    Renders Turning Black Once Updated

    @Jim Wilson I think it's gone. I haven't seen it since SP2. Thanks!

    Texture Size

    Yes, only the mapping.

    Texture Size

    Think so. It's been a while. I had a quick look inside the wrapper and it looks like this: Feed the values in according to the node description. You may have to string several of these together.

    Vortex box

    Use a function perhaps, like x*x*50 or something similar?

    Texture Mapping with Marionette

    @Nuno Antunessee my reply to this thread, it has an object attached with some texture manipulation that should answer all your questions:

    Texture Size

    @Nuno Antunescheck out my Box objects. I am resizing the texture to fit to the lid for example. Does this help? Box.vwx

    VW 2020 Suggestions

    I can only comment on the auto-cutout for countertop wish: That is entirely possible with the full version of interiorcad. You can group a routing contour with a sink symbol and have it behave like a window in a wall: Cutout.mp4

    Cabinet Drawers

    Is this the "Custom Cabinet" you are referring to? You can click inside a segment and adjust its size as shown in the screen shot.There are more advanced options in the full-blown version of interiorcad. Some videos here.

    Vortex box

    Try this. It's not far off, just needs some refinement. Vortex Box.vwx

    Vortex box

    @Palle You need to supply a list of values to the rect and, subsequently, extrude node. That will take care of everything. The ordered list is not necessary for this kind of thing.

    Updated Books (2.1)

    The Books have been converted to run with VWX 2019 and I fixed an error where the 'Hardcover' library needed a shelf depth and height of 2m to produce any books.

    Vectorworks User Interface Overhaul

    Yes but what I am proposing are changes pertaining to the functioning of the UI. That's UX. What I was trying to say was, let's not confuse VWX functions ("How do I change the crop of a viewport") with UI functions ("How do I access the side pane widget while the RM is in a docked state").
