If Marionette, the new Python-based graphical scripting tool in Vectorworks 2016, has you intrigued but unsure of where to start, then join us for Marionette Monday, a free webinar series that will delve into both the technical and aesthetic design possibilities made available through this feature.
“Graphical scripting can be very intimidating to non-scripters, but these webinars will shine some light on the ‘mysteries’ of scripting using a powerful, dynamic tool: Marionette,” said Sarah Barrett, webinar host and Vectorworks’ architectural BIM specialist. “Once you learn the basics, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll be creating complex, parametric objects.”
Interested? You can sign up for the webinars now. And don’t worry if you can’t make the airdates, as all registrants will be sent recordings of each of the webinars. Each Marionette Monday will air from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on the following dates:
- January 18, 2016 — Part 1: The Basics
- February 1, 2016 — Part 2: Intermediate
- February 8, 2016 — Part 3: Advanced I
- February 22, 2016 — Part 4: Advanced II
The first and only cross-platform graphical scripting tool available in a BIM-authoring software, Marionette enables designers with little or no prior programming experience to create custom application algorithms that build interactive objects, streamline complex workflows, and explore the power of 2D drawing, 3D modeling, and BIM workflows within Vectorworks software.
