  1. I was about to upload a new version of my Books Marionette, containing some lever-arch file symbols but the upload was cancelled with an error. Is there a limit to file sizes? Thanks.
  2. I suppose some more swapping of columns is necessary to make the offset more uneven 😁
  3. After some major refactoring (actually, a rewrite), the network has become more elegant and much smaller. Modifying the points before they are fed into the polygon proves much faster and more manageable. Now, it's also easier to add more options (movement of vertices along the x axis?). And since the "Set 2D vertex" node is now redundant, the whole Marionette works as an object. Array-IT2.vwx
  4. Added some numbering and introduced a second random parameter. Now, each of the four vertices is randomly moved in y direction. It's actually something I needed as well so you're in luck 🙂. I have filed a bug about the object node not playing nice with the "Set 2D Vertex" node so once that's fixed this will be quite a fun object to play with. Array-IT1.vwx
  5. I've actually done it. It doesn't convert to an object node. The "Set 2D Vertex" node fails inside the object node. @Marissa Farrell can you confirm? @mickcullinan you need to pick the offset values out of a list of random values and apply those offsets to the vertices in each poly. Looks a bit messy because I was not able to enter more than one value for the "Set 2D Vertex" node. I think that is actually supposed to work. I suppose you want the top and bottom rows to remain flat on the outside. The "Remove At" node is good for picking every nth value. Careful if you have more offset values than polygons because the last poly will receive the last value in the list. Better to strip the excess ones using "Split List" (although that's kinda hacky). This can probably be done more elegantly but it works. Array.vwx
  6. @mickcullinan You need to make an array first and then modify the points. Can you work off this? Convert the rects to polys and apply your point modifications. Set the Mix2 to "Cross reference". Array.vwx
  7. Try undocking the object info palette. It's a knows issue. You running Mojave?
  8. Hi everyone, I have a strange behaviour on a customer's computer with strong flickering and a display like this: Graphics card is Radeon. Has anyone seen/solved this before? Thanks!
  9. As a flat workpiece? Extract surface and pray it's a single axis curve. If it is, go to Model -> 3D Powerpack -> Unfold Surface.
  10. You need to make it predictable!
  11. You will need to find a way to align those vertices if you want to make an object from this Marionette network. Those vertices are going to realign. The offset fed into the index port of the Split List node is likely going to be different for different polylines.
  12. Oh, come on, you've done it. Just work on the reordering of those vertices. Very minimal, nice marionette.
  13. You were on the right track. I don't think you need to do much sorting because the duplicates are all created in order. You need to target the relevant circles' indices. Each index is a poly vertex. Try the "every other" node.
  14. Loft is your best bet. try creating the end top corners as lines, join using a NURBS curve and then shell to get the thickness. If you're going to send this to a CNC, stay clear of any Subdivision modelling as that will not give you the right type of NURBS surface in the end. You must use solids to create this.
  15. I have a fix available. Please download v. 1.1. Please also try copying and pasting into other documents. It should now work without issue.
  16. @martinfdc do you have "Show unit mark" turned on? Can you try turning it off, regenerating your TV and then turning it back on? Does that help?
  17. @martinfdc can you try making a simple path extrude and then resetting the Marionette by changing any of its options? Does that help?
  18. Just to add my 2c, I am seeing this issue regularly on clients' machines. I think it is Windows only. The saving issue appears to be such that the inactive tab is saved instead of the current tab.
  19. Has anyone come across this? This is PC only. Re-rendering on Mac will create the background just fine. Image compression is set to PNG already so it can't be that. Nothing we do reverts this. I am seeing this on several clients' machines. I'm also logging this as a bug but if anything transpires here, I want to be able to use it as reference. Thanks for comments! test Visualisierung2.vwx
  20. Version 1.1

    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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.

    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
