Marionette and symbols?

Recommended Posts

So I am just starting to play with the marionette tools and I am wanting to make a script that will do seating layouts they way I want and need them done (the event seating tool is a pain in the butt and never really works for me)

So I want to take a symbol (can't figure out how to do that)

Duplicate it in an array (simple)

Group that array (simple)

Duplicate that group offset but a certain distance (6' aisle for example) in both X and Y

I can pretty much figure out everything except for specifying the starting symbol. I was thinking Input Name would do the trick but can't get that to work soooo... not sure now!

I figure I can end up with a script that I can put in the number of chairs per row, spacing between rows, then spacing between sections and the number of sections. Then really quickly I can change it up to find the best layout for a room (given fire code and such)

In this post over on the Marionette forum, DomC has posted a file containing his custom Marionette nodes to insert 2D & 3D symbols.

Now there is a great use for Marionette, been wondering what would be some simple things that it could be used for.

Post your results please and maybe have this post moved down to the Marionette section of the forum please Jim.

Thanks
