Marionette with Record

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to make a simple tool that has a few text user input text fields as well as an object that gets its color fill from a drop down menu. All these fields should also link to a custom record so that the information can be put into a report. I have most of this working in a very thrown together manner in the attached file, however there are a few specific things I'm most curious about.


1) How do I structure this so that when I eventually get this to work as a tool the created object is placed at next mouse click? Currently when wrapped object is created at 0,0

2) Why when converted to a Marionette Object does the attached record break? 

3) Why is the file size so huge for so little information?

Thanks! That works much closer to how I intended. Much appreciated. I'm just starting to get a better feel for how the marionette system works.


Any sense as to why the file size seems so huge?

i think the file size come from every single Marionette Node, if you want a smaller Marionette Objekt / File size, you have to optimize the Network and wrote it with fewer Node's. 🙂  

For Example, this Part (Screenshot) in your Marionette Network can replace with one simple "Python - Node".
