Attaching Record to Plug In Object create from Node

Recommended Posts

In this marionette, i have records being attached and updated as the size of the truss is changed in the IOP. The records are name and weight so i can sort them and pull weights in a area based on x/y. The records work great as a marionette object not yet wrapped up. However, once it's wrapped and then converted to an object node, the records are no longer attached.

I guess before i bang my head against the wall, i should ask " Is this is even possible?"

Not at a computer right now, but try using the PIO handle node and attaching the records to that while converted to a Marionette Object.

Thanks for the response. Do i break the link and just place the PIO Parent in the file as link it to the hObj input of the record? See images attached.

Yes, that will allow you to set the class of the PIO. If you want to class individual parts within the PIO differently, you would do that the standard way by assigning classes to those parts within the network.
