Set Ifc Entity, Marionette Object

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm experimenting a bit with Marionette to customize some objects. I'd like to add IFC data to it. I've attached a very simple network.


When I wrap the network and convert it to a object node a 'marionette object' is created. The extrude within the marionette object is set to a certain specified IFC entity but not the marionette object itself. So when I IFC export the marionette object no geometry is exported because it's not a IFC entity...


Anyone any idea's?

What you want to use in this case is the "PIO Handle" node in the Object info category. The "PIO Handle" returns the handle to the resulting Marionette Object and can only be used in Marionette Objects.


The best way to combine these together is with a "pass" node.


I've attached an example. Let me know if you need further clarification.
