Dimension Input to String

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a marionette script that can do the following

  • Take dimension inputs.
  • Make a shape base on those inputs.
  • Make a text box next to the shape with the dimensions and other specifications.

I'm having trouble converting the dimension value into a string. Does anybody know of an easy way to do this?

Here's what I've tried so far. I've attempted to make a node for VS.Num2StrF but I'm not having any luck. If I hard code the value directly into the function it works.


If I try to pass a variable, then it doesn't work. Am I making a simple mistake?

Also, the nodes in the "Text" category should already convert the values to strings before creating the text objects, if you plan to use those.

Just to follow up - I think the issue with your node is only that you included "SetListAbsorb()".

When I took that out, your node ran for me.
