Help with tutorial

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to follow the tutorial "Algorithmic Design in BIM Software" on the VW Uni site but can't get my script to run properly. 

I've obviously made a mistake but just can't find it.

Can anyone help?

Hello - unfortunately I used a version of the Collate node that was not the same as in the default library. That node needs different inputs. Below is the thread talking about this, and I have attached a corrected script.

Oh, thanks very much 🎉

I thought I was too stupid to follow simple instructions yesterday.

Now I'm motivated again 💪

Just one other simple question for a beginner... When I download and open a marionette project from someone else, how do I find the script if it's not already visable? 🙈

That's easy - assuming the name of the node or file corresponds to the name of the entry in the Marionette Gallery.

1) Click on "Marionette" at the top of the page.
2) Click into the search bar in the upper right corner.

3) Select >>Search In "Files"<<

4) Write the name of the tool/node/object you are looking for into the search field.

5) Hit enter.


Point 3) will assure that the search goes looking through all Marionette Gallery entries and will give you suitable results.
