Marionette Ramp

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am an exhibition designer (and new here) and would like to develop a "ramp" tool for my work.

Some booths are built up around 10-20 centimetres over the exhibition floor and therefore use a ramp module of about 1-1.5 meters deep to avoid a step.

Eventually I would like to have a BIM module, but I thought I could start with a simple marionette where you type in the desired height and depth of the ramp and the it extrudes along an active path.

I've watched a couple of marionette tutorials but still obviously don't even understand the basics.

Before giving up I just wanted to ask if anyone can give me a tip on how I could continue (perhaps I'm going about it completely the wrong way)

Thanks a lot

😲 Oh, thank you so much! This really does help, I'll play around with it a little more, and perhaps get back to if I get stuck again. Thanks again, Neil
