    Is there a way to use a profile symbol in a Marionette object

    Have you tried using "Control Geometry"? It should do what you want. You can have nested groups inside it and access each sub-group by criteria. @DomChas also made a node that will do this, overcoming some of the limitations of the stock node.

    What’s wrong with the “scale” line in this example? it stopped running when I put it in a wrapper. 


    It loses the escape characters on conversion to a wrapper. If you edit your wrapper and replace the  1" = 1'-0"  with 1\" = 1'-0\" again, it will work.

  3. I have just added an Enhancement Request for combined nodes. (I had already logged one earlier this year for Master Snaps to appear in Marionette nodes.)

    Here is my (probably very incomplete) list. If anyone wants to add to it, feel free. I can always complete it in the original VE

    Combined Nodes (Choose Options via popup in OIP, rename nodes dynamically)

    * Add/subtract/multiply/divide
    * Pop Front/Pop Back/Pop Both
    * if/Filter
    * Greater than/Less than/Equal/...

    * And/Or/Xor

  4. Since we are on a roll anyway: could we have more integrated nodes? I very often find myself subtracting and adding different numbers in the same place in a network. Currently, this means I have to delete the add node, then add the subtract node etc. I would love to have a combined "Maths" node with a simple popup menu in the OIP that allows me to change add, subtract, multiply, divide etc.

    Same for "less than", "equal".... you get my drift...

    (@DomChas crafted an add/subtract node which I use exclusively but if this was integrated for all users, that would be perfect)

  5. There is a new feature which I absolutely LURVE: Thanks for ignoring wires when aligning nodes. It has helped a lot alleviating my Marionette-OCD. Well done!

    Could we hope for *selection* of nodes to also ignore wires for 2019? Like they were not there? That would sweeten up my day even more :-)

  6. I would really like to see Master Snaps implemented for Marionette nodes. When you have a complex network and you are zoomed out all the way for a bird's eye view it can be a tad cumbersome to connect nodes. Snap Loupe is always there, of course, but still...

  7. Valve is a real boon when you try to speed up complex networks. I am using it in a current project and I think it helps speeding things up when non-executable parameters are excluded while a network is changed via the OIP. I had to reorganize my network a little bit to work less sequential. But no bother. 

  8. I have been chasing a nasty bug that will stop the OIP from updating after a short time working with Marionettes in VWX 2018. Unfortunately, I cannot pin it down to any specific action which is ever so slightly annoying because it stops me from filing a usable bug...

    If anyone is able to reproduce this, any help is appreciated. What is happening is that the OIP will continue to show the info of the previous selected object or node until I go to Top/Plan view. Then, even when I continue to work in Top/Plan view, it will require me to press cmd-5 frequently to refresh the OIP. I don't know when or by what action this starts to happen but it always does (macOS). Is anyone else seeing this?

    I have xs I have been using since 2012 and been working off of a demo of the full version of interiorcad. I am trying to upgrade to the full version but can't get hold of the gentleman that has been servicing the US. Next closest is Resolve in Canada but they won't sell to me. I like the program but the lack of support may push us in an entirely different direction.  Any help would be appreciated. 

    @SMIplease contact Sven Biermann (sven.biermann@extragroup.de) for sales. Thank you!

  10. I just got a case in where autosave seems to be part of the problem. The client saves to desktop. Autosave goes to desktop also. She describes the following:


    "Sometimes, autosave stops working for some 45 minutes or thereabouts. I notice this always when suddenly, tools stop working properly: instead of typing text, I draw a circle. Shortly afterwards, my screen shows me the drawing's state of 45 minutes ago."


    Not expecting any answers but maybe this can help find the cause of the behaviour. Thanks!

    I have been using interiorcad xs for several years and want to move to the next level of Interiorcad. At this time it is difficult in the US to get support for the software here in the U.S. or am I looking in the wrong places? Specifically on producing documents and nesting to CNC. 

    Hi @SMI, while we do not have an official dealer in the US, you are welcome to PM me with any specific questions you may have. We now offer a wide range of outputs to various CNC machines, as well as a DXF-based export that is user-configurable. So, we should be able to get you up and running with interiorcad ASAP.
