# Tool for rectangles with equal surface

## Recommended Posts

Hi

I am a Vectorworks-User from Switzerland...

trying to create a tool for different rectangles, whose two side lengths can be changed as desired, but with equal surfaces.

This should be very practical when designing floor plans (implementation of space programs).

In a second step I would like to make this concept also possible for Spaces.

As far as I know such a tool doesn't exist in VW at the moment.

I have started studying marionette, but my skills are not strong enough to get there.

Could you help me with this?

I attach my actual network, which is based on the Golden Ratio tutorial from Service Select.

Hi Mi&D

I am a cabinet maker, also from switzerland.

Is this what you would like to have?

Hi Gregi

What a coincidence!

Thanks for this.

It's bringing me one step beyond, but something is missing:

All rectangles should have the same surface, only the edges can change.

In your output, all rectangles have different surfaces...

I've tried this, see attachment.

How can I make the whole range of rectangles show up, like in your example...?

We might need to combine your and my network to get to the point...

like this?

Tool as Marionette Object?

hello

M.Graf

The result is exactly what I meant.

What's new for me in your network is: "Sequence..."

You've substituted my Input node "y" (real) with Data flow "Sequence".

I don't understand the logic of the "Sequence".

Could you please explain it to me?

Furthermore I don't understand the part of the network right from the "rectangle-node".

Why do you need the "Get Area-node" and "round". What is Print Debug doing?

By the way:

Thanks for any further explanation.

Wow, I only realized now, that a slider is implemented...Great!

I was thinking, that it could be nice to apply this method from 2D-rectangles to Vectorworks-Spaces.

What do you think about it?

Hello Mi&D,

the print debug node shows (print) the result of the Marionette network.

If you remove the round node, you will see the reason... 🙂

with DomC "spacesfrom List" and my "Objektnode" i get "Room's with fixed Area"...

thanks for that, m graf.

unfortunately, I don't understand how to bring together the marionette "Spaces from list" of DomC and your "Object node".

Could you please get more into detail?
