    use matrix

    Hello everyone I am trying to create a matrix. Who can show me with an example how the knot works? Thank you for your help
  2. Hello Every Body, I am wondering if there can be any way to draw such an object with marrionette. just the guidlines would be also enough, maybe we can do a brainstorming. 3d - körper -.vwx
  3. Hello everyone I'm looking for a way to find the intersection and the ring around the object. After a few tries with Poly 3D and Nurbs I am now asking you. Do you have a solution? Thank you for your help Ring.vwx
  4. Hello there, is it possible to get the the text style from the Parent PIO? just asking to make my onject more customizable (i.e. switching font and font style) Cheers!

    Euler Angles

    Hello everyone I'm looking for a network that can output the resulting vertices in 3D: Given are: - Starting point 3D - segment lengths - segment angle a,b,y So far I've thought of trigonometry, but failed so far. One approach could also be the Euler angles. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eulersche_Winkel Has anyone had any experience with the formulas? Thank you for your help
  6. Hello, some time ago I made a Vectorscript Menu command that computes the current date and writes to a database record. Now I'd like to implement this in a Marionette Object. Whenever I click a button in the OIP of the Marionette Object it should call the Vectorscript. Is this or something similar possible and how do I do it? Thanks for help VvierA
  7. Hi Everyone, I created a network to generate a set of hybrid symbols from a worksheet using VW 2020/2021. They are basic representations of framed paintings to be hung on a wall (exhibition design) with a 2D "footprint" defined by a width and depth column and 3D geometry of a frame and extruded plane representing the image. I'm a little confused about how to define the 2D vs 3D geometry with Marionette in VW 2022 now that the screen plane has been deprecated. Does anyone know what node I need to use to define geometry that should live in the 2D component rather than everything ending up in the 3D component? Thanks! -Chris
  8. Hi, everyone I have two problems with inserting and mirroring symbols with a marionette. When inserting I don't get a Z position. When mirroring, the symbol is shifted in the Y-axis. Is the knot correct? Who can help? thank you Problem.vwx
  9. Hello everyone Is there a node that can be used to read out a value in a table similar to that in Excel? I think of a function like the "s-reference or w-reference". For this, the first column with the label should be selectable with a dropdown popup. Thank you for your help
  10. Hello everybody.... I'm trying to do a script in marionette, that only shows a part of the value. For Example, i want to do a combination of 2 values. Number: 04 Story name: 01OG my Goal: 01(OG)+04 = 0104 I need to keep the only 2 number (01) of my value (01OG) something like the Vectorworks Formula by the output mapping : LEFT([...],2) Someone has an idea ? Thanks
  11. Hi all, I thought that I'd try and put in one place some diverse Marionette resources for you who are new to Vectorworks' algorithmic / parametric modeling tool: Basic Tutorial in Vectorworks documentation More Advanced Tutorial in Vectorworks documentation Marionette on YouTube (thank you Jim) Marionette Developer Wiki (for Pythonistas)

    rotate list

    Hello everyone my marionette generates 3d points and puts them in a list. I convert the points into a 3d polygon. I would now like to change the direction to end-start. ideally, the list is sorted first (z-a) and then the polygon is generated. can you help me? Thank you
  13. I'm building a simple hybrid object in Marionette. Now I'd like to use materials in the object. There seem to be no nodes for materials in Marionette. I'm missing 2 nodes: A 'materials popup' node to select a material from the available materials in the current document. A 'set material' node to attach a material by name to an object by handle. I've been able to create the latter. But when I create the 'materials popup' node, I'm running into an issue. When I create the node, it lists the materials in the document correctly, but when I add a material to the document, it doesn't update except when I save the current document... I'm attaching my custom nodes. Geëxporteerd bestand Marionette.vwx

    This is a scenic design tool I created for set designers to help simulate sightlines quickly for those situations where scenery is moving around a lot during a show and you're trying to check for blind spots in arrangements, communicate with the director, or are designing something complicated in the round. While this program requires a 3D model to work it will only give you a 2D groundplan simulation. Because I'm modeling the blind spots using a lighting device to create the shadow projection there will be some slight error and the tool will be less effective on a multi-level set or significantly raked stage. Directions for use are given in the file along with a series of buttons to run the program. In essence, you run a network to generate a sight line object and name it (e.g. House Right Seat), move the object to the location and adjust the sight line bounds, and then run another network to create a shadow projection simulation of what a person can see from that seat. Finally, you switch to fast renderworks to see the shadows and, if necessary, adjust the Bot-Z depending on where the z=0 point is in relation to the playing space. I'm using a object naming system that takes user input and names objects with concatenation as they're are created, releases them to the user for manual modification, and then regains control in a separate network. This is still a little buggy and sometimes leads to VWX crashing (particularly the user clicks "cancel" after prompted to input a name), so save your file before running any of the networks here. I'm still new to marionette so I appreciate any feedback.
  15. Hello everybody Can anyone tell me if there is a Marionette that can create a plan list for me? If so, where can I download it? Thanks in advance Micha
  16. Im trying too work out a Marionette that will let cables connect to devices. Kind of like a connection point that I will add to symbols. Can anyone explain this in a simpler way. Im basically trying to make a small AV symbol like ConnectCad uses. I just need a simpler version. I m willing to put the time in. I just can figure out how to plan that Marionette.. I have watched all the videos. I just can seem to grasp what i need to start with for this item.. PLEASE HELP
  17. Hi, I'm hoping for an easy fix I've missed in my googling. I want to be able to change the colour/ attributes of a Marionette / object node from the object info panel or in such a way that it is easy/ quick to customise. Thank you for any help in advance. Kind regards, George Marionette - 4 Square.vwx
  18. Hello, Although I have been using Vectorworks for many years I have never had cause to venture in to the world of Marionette and am looking for a little guidance. I have an imported DWG file that has a number of focus positions denoted by a circle and a text numerical reference. I would like to try to write a Marionette script that will take the centre point of these text objects and create focus points at those coordinates, and ideally take the text and use it as the focus point name. Id be grateful for any pointers to set me in the right direction. Cheers. Keith
  19. I am trying to figure out if there is a node or if it is possible to code a custom node to "Send To Surface" where input objects can be sent to a Site Model?
  20. Hi There, I'm having trouble creating a revision history worksheet from my title block borders. As shown in the screen shot below you can see that the revision number keeps repeating the current revision as oppose to the revision the drawing had when it was issued . I though I might be able to fix this myself using the Set Cell Formula, but I can't get that to work either 😞 Thanks for your help!
  21. Hi Everyone, I'm having an issue with the add list node. If I create a list with the ordered list node and run it in, everything works well, but if I extract that information from a worksheet and run it into the node the result is 0 items. I've tried formatting the data as different number types (dimension, general, decimal) but same result. Anyone come across this before? Thanks! -Chris AddList_Debug.vwx AddList_Debug.vwx
  22. Heya Team, I am trying to create a layer filled with symbol insert wrappers. I have got it working but it always inserts the symbol on the same layer the wrapper is on, where do I place the command to tell the wrapper which layer to send that symbol to? Thanks in Advance!
  23. How can I generate a cut list automatically from a 2D drawing? I just want to draw shapes, give each a unique code that shows up on the drawing (with the shape, like a data tag) and simultaneously puts the objects dimensions into a spreadsheet. I have retrofitted the space tool to do something like this, but would love to have this as a simple tool...
  24. Hi there, I try to work with the Insertion Point of Symbols. The problem is that the "Get Symbol Location" Node only creates the X an Y Axis of the Symbol but not the Z Axis Is there some other node which can display the Z Axis? I've seen the node "Get Z at XY", but the problem is that this is the highest Point of the 3d Symbol at the Insertion Point and not the insertion Point itself. Thanks in advance Tom
  25. Hello, I've a file with lots of block text and I want to create 3Dlocus at each text. It's Ok to Get X and Y coordinates. The Z value is the text object himself. The GetString node returns a String, but I need to convert this string to Real number. Is somebody have an Idea?
