Deleting Polygons

Recommended Posts

Hi - I'm hoping somebody can help me. 


I'm new to Vectorworks and trying to get to grips with Marionette objects, I've put this together to create a simple  netball court given dimensions width, length and line width. 


I can't work out why / how to 'delete' the extra rectangle shown in the picture. 


Any help would be much approached!


All the best,

The Red rectangle is being generated by the Extrude node. Without the extrude you get two groups. One for the lines and one for the center circle.


What are you actually trying to accomplish?

Hi Pat, 


Thanks for looking at this - I fell like its pretty close - I just want to 'delete' the big red rectangle. I used it to cut the circle in half but it 'reappears' when I extrude everything.

you can try this...


i think there are more than one Objects in the output List of your "add surface" - Boolean Node. 

put the "Print Debug" node behind, to test the list, or try every item to get the red rectangle.

without the Print debug node, unfortunately you have to try every Item No.  from 0 to 1, to 2 ...  


if your nice Marionette Network works -  can i get it? 🙂

Thank you for the help - the list explode seemed to help after a bit of debugging. It still gets a bit buggy if you enclose it into an object but its good enough for my purposes.

hi GeorgeWL


you can try this <planar Boolean Node> in the file (tilecounter_Fix.vwx

but you need the <remove Duplicate node> behind
