Marionette Monday Webinar Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi Nadja Sue

It works on my computer as follows:

1. Enter Group

2. Edit Heliodon

3. Exit Group

4. Run Script

Maybe the old map is not deleted and the old one. Or maybe try copy paste to a new document.

I live in Switzerland. Maybe German IP are blocked :-)

Thanks for the update!

"rectangle" has double quotes the next SetDescription is in single quotes. does it make a difference if you use double or single quotation marks?

There are 3 ways to specify strings in Python! ' ', " ", """ """. Just remember that the quotes have to match at the beginning and end of the string value.

http://www.tutorialspoint.com/python/python_strings.htm

I guess the link to this python tutorial is based on Python 2 as opposed to Python 3 which Vectorworks adopts.

Can you suggest us a better tutorial, as the change in strings between Python 2 and 3 is not subtle. (Especially for multi byte peoples :) )

Yes you are right, windows is the problem because it uses '\' instead of '/' for filepaths. ('Image from URL'-Node)

You can find the fixed version in the attached vwx.

I just found another issue - no matter what location I selected I always ended up in Turkey Ankara.

The reason for this was that the Long/Lat values containded a comma (maybe caused by german OS preference) . I fixed this problem with a self written StrReplace-Node.

Now most Citys are accurate but when I select Spain Barcelona for example it still misses the target.

hello

Where can I find the last existing nodes or the one that have been modified without waiting for sp3? I heard something about it in the webinar but… forgot when.

Thanks in advance

Hello all, I just wanted to give everyone an update on the info given in the last webinar. At 12 min. 30 sec. of this webinar, I say that the command vs.RectangleN() can be given a variable name. This is not correct. This function returns None, so the variable would be equal to None. No matter what, it is necessary to use the vs.LNewObj() after the rectangle function in order to give the created rectangle a variable. I apologize for giving the wrong info, I hope I didn't confuse anyone!

The ones in the original post here were approved for credits, I do not know if any of the recent ones were or not. Who was the presenter?

You might want to add a link to this thread in the description of the videos. I came across the series via Youtube, and even searched for them on the Vectorworks site. Nothing was listed on there, so I had written it off. Just stumbled across these now by chance.

We have something good for this planned, not sure when it will go live but it should resolve dead ends like this! 

I will also add the link in the meantime regardless.

Sounds good, and I forgot to mention that I was looking for the files, as the video refers to them a couple different times.

Is anyone else having issues with the infographics.vwx file that was posted?

Every time I open it, it crashes. Running VWX 2017 on a mac.

Could anyone convert it to 2017, see if that solves the problem please?

 

Thanks.
