    Symbols with embedded Marionette

    So I want to create a series of symbols that have Marionette wrappers embedded within them. The marionette wrapper would take data from an attached record defining the shape and depth of the symbol. By doing this we can have one symbol that is for all telecom hand holds and by changing the records the marionette wrapper would change the shape and depth of the symbol to match. We could then have one standard top view for a legend but on dimensional control plans we could show the accurate size and have a worksheet that quantifies all the hand holes by size. Not sure if all this made sense but the is the gist of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 0485 services symbols.vwx

    Reports Records Database Worksheet Schedule

    Dear VW aficionados, could anyone please explain to me the difference between the below. Most likely I would understand a 'sketch or visualisation' to it better in comparison to reading the Help menu where I can't digest the content. --> Reports, Records, Databases, Worksheets & Schedules <-- Am getting utterly confused about these ;0)) Any input is appreciated. Cheers, Grethe
  3. Is there a way to create a report for symbols that have symbols within them? i have multiples of the same part and parts that have minor changes in them that use some of the parts and pieces from other parts and I want to create a report that generates a report of the total pieces used. Is that possible?
  4. Hello Marionette aficionados... I would absolutely love a tool for drafting all Site related surfaces/areas including Existing, Demolition and New conditions. Basically it would take a polygon and turn it into something similar to a space object, but with a lot fewer functions. full disclosure: I do not know marionette Preface... Site Plans seem simple, but to fully coordinate all the information that gets put on the Site Plan is pretty intense. Our building department makes us fill out very detailed worksheets. They want to know the area of everything. Getting this info correct is the sort of thing that slows you down to a crawl when you're getting ready for submittals. Description of Tool... One of the biggest benefits of this tool, would be that you could make all of your site surfaces on a single class, let's say "A-SITE-AREA", and allow a lot of graphic changes and record keeping to be bundled into the tool (similar to a space object). But it doesn't need to be nearly as complex as a space object. Space objects are a bit heavy and clunky, and I think drawing a siteplan using spaces would create an undesirable workflow. The OIP for this marionette would need to control the following parameters: "Surface Type": This list would be pretty long, and would cover all of the site classes we currently use when drafting a site plan. It needs to satisfy the basic Architectural, Landscape and Civil design elements. You would still need all these classes in the document, it's just that you wouldn't have to constantly be switching to different site classes as you drafted. Instead, the tool would allow you to link each surface category to a specific class, so that the pen and fill properties belonging to each category could still be independently controlled by separate classes. It would be like how door and window component graphics work. You can link each one to its own component class, or you could choose the object class to keep things simple. "Existing", "Demolition" or "New" ("New" would be the default): Including this function means that each surface category would potentially need 3 separate options for class assignment, one for Existing, one for Demolition, and one for New. Having this single feature hardwired into the tool would save a ton of drafting work. It would also make Site Data Tabulations a lot easier. "Pedestrian" or "Vehicular" (for hardscape surfaces): This wouldn't effect class assignments, but would be needed for Site Data worksheets. Yes, we're asked to provide this information in some jurisdictions. "Permeable" or "Impervious": This also wouldn't effect class assignments, but would be needed for Site Data worksheets. Turn Line Work On/Off: Turn Fill On/Off: Duplicate Line Work: An important feature would be the ability to push a button and get the polygon line work redrawn, removing it from the marionette object, and put onto the appropriate class associated with the surface element it represents. You would want to be able to select multiple surface objects all at once, and then run this command, putting the resultant line work into a group, so it could be easily selected and moved to a different layer. Duplicate Fill: The same goes for the fill Add Label Display Name/Title Display Area Is all of this achievable with marionette? Thanks! Matt Regarding Landmark... I know that Landmark has a Hardscape and Landscape tool that is similar to what I've outlined. If I had Landmark, I'd probably be using these tools. I recently posted to the Site Design section about this to see if I was overlooking something in my version (see link directly below). But there's nothing in Fundamentals or Architecture that does any of this for us. So now I'm turning to all you marionette aficionados... I'm hoping we can make something even better using your skills!
  5. Submitted on behalf of a Vectorworks user/client. They pointed out that when Data Visualization is being used to represent values of given objects, how cumbersome it is to manually update record field values if an object changes - for example - in dimension or area etc. His suggestion is to add the capability for Record Field Values to be drawn from object values in the Shape tab of the Object Info Palette. I seem to recall witnessing an implementation of this type of thing using Marionette, but this doesn't translate or connect to the Viewport Data Visualization facility.
  6. It seems that Ungroup (either invoked via script or manually) now prevents any attached records from transferring to the constituents parts of the group. Is this a change or am I missing something here (eg. it is a preference setting)? Any help would be much appreciated.
  7. It would be great improvement when we have multiple objects selected with records attached if Number fields presented as a range of values for the selection and we could do math on the range. Instead of just being blank like current. I.e. I have a whole bunch of desk clusters. The client has numbered each desk for reasons that mean we should match them. I could set up one cluster with the desks numbered in the right order. Say 1 to 8 and the object info palette would show. Better still if we could edit or shift the full range then with simple math operations like plus and minus.

    Records and worksheets

    I have made a symbol and attached a record. In this record I have made a field where you can give a length and a drop down menu that has 4 options. Now I want to make a worksheet that gives me the sum of the length fields with the specific option selected in the drop down menu. Can anyone help me? Worksheet_&_records.vwx
  9. Hey al, Is there a way to use a spreadsheet of X,Y,Z position data to populate the appropriate X,Y,Z fields of a symbol, fixture, or any object? For example, a designer i work with gave me an MA3D file created in 3D but i need to turn it into appropriate lighting plot paperwork. I have X,Y,Z data for every finxture and want to use an easy copy and paste to position all fixtures correctly in the drawing. I have tried using a lightwright data exchange, report functionality listing the X,Y,Z data of each fixture, and tried to create records with no luck. any time i populate the fileds in a spreadsheet, the changes do not get reflected on the fixtures. Any tips? Thanks!
  10. It would be nice if it could be possible to link a formula to a data visualization viewport. For example- I have a GIS map of a town that I can use to get the lot size and building square footage. I can calculate the FAR (floor area ratio) of the properties with a worksheet and would like to be able to show the various FAR graphically in a viewport. I would like to take record values, create a mathematical formula, and apply them to the data visualization viewport. Another instance of data visualization that I would like to do is to be able to compare a space net/gross area to see if it is greater or less than the proposed area that is required from the programming analysis.

    Create Record Field...fldType Input

    I am trying to determine what parameter to input into the Create Field node/FldType to create the different types of fields (i.e. integener, boolean, text, and the multiple formats of numbers).
