Attaching room numbers and names to polygons and Spaces

Recommended Posts


I regularly receive architects base files with polygons and separate text elements for room numbers and names. I want to extract these and create Vectoroworks Space objects with the same number and name fields.


It looks like it should be easy for Marionette to do this, it just isn't easy for me to configure Marionette! Has anyone else had a similar requirement (and solved it) I wonder?

What you are talking about is the same idea as this file. This takes loci and nearby text taken from a survey and converts them to the Existing Tree PIO. It could be adapted to the Space object. Because the Space is a path-based object (each Space shape is potentially unique, based on a path), you would have to adjust the script a little.

Many thanks @sbarrett I will pursue further. I loved your tutorials btw. They were what piqued my interest in marionette to start with.
