This Marionette Network generates vertical blinds.

Nearly every part of the blinds can be modified by the parameters.

 

Usage comments:

- Put the Symbol 'Vertical Blind' into your drawing.

- Now costumize it to your needs with the parameters in the object info palette:

 

Total Length, Slat Height, Slat Width, Slat Angle and more

(A Video will follow)

 

- Finally you can define textures for parts of the slat by the generated classes:

 

VerticalBlind-Slat

VerticalBlind-Slat_Backing

VerticalBlind-Rope

VerticalBlind-Fixture

VerticalBlind-String

VerticalBlind-Beads

 

Thanks to Dom for the PutByRefNode which made it a lot more easy.

Works fine on your original drawing.

Hi, new to using marionette. Cool script,but should my computer be spinning-wheel-of-death every time I change info in OIP? Take a good 20+ seconds to make each change....

Thx

Hi Alan,

the calculation of the strings with its beads is the bottleneck.

Unfortunately this can't be turned of optionaly due the limitations of marionette.

There is the option 'Show String beads' in the OIP which just controls if the beads are deleted at the end.

20 seconds sounds really long maybe it's time for a new computer ;)

Alternatively you can use the modificated version attached in this post which comes without strings.
