Filling up your spaces automatically with symbols

Recommended Posts


Imagine you have client, which delivers you a room list. And a list, which objects have to be in this rooms. You can consider this lists with hundreds of rooms on your left screen and click them one by one in your rooms. You will make errors and your eyes will get squared.

Another real interesting example how you could accelerate a routine job with a marionette script.

Look here:


Sometimes I remember the good old times I turned on the radio-volume and drawed hatches with single lines one by one.

Think you should edit the "Get Record Field" node and paste the content of the 2019 "Get Record Field Node". Specific the vs.GetType(h) function should be replaced with vs.GetTypeN(). That issue hits every Marionette Script which were using SetRecordField and GetRecordField.


Attached an Updated File


Best Regards
