Marionette node with Braceworks symbol

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

BenV posted a cool node last year.

He made a swivel CB.

Now I took his idea to use it with a truss bookcorner

I've had a job last week where I needed it with braceworks.

The only problem is that the symbol is on in an angle but with the node I can adjust it

I only don't get it working with a braceworks truss symbol.

Does anyone knows if that's possible and how?



Greetings Martijn

In order to make a symbol work with Braceworks the Truss Record must be applied.  This is what the Auto Connect engine uses in order to generate the red line that shows when a connection is possible.  I am not sure if you can apply the Truss Record to this particular Marionette object because of the wrapper and how it changes the way the object behaves.  @Marissa Farrell may know more on whether it is possible or not.  


When I use hinges I create a symbol with a specified angle and setup the Braceworks data as a L-Corner and this works well and allows the Auto Connect to generate.
