Does Marionette intimidate you? Alan Woodwell, architectural designer at Playoust Churcher Architects, offers helpful insight in his recent AECbytes article, “The Many Marvels of Marionette and How to Make the Most of It.” Marionette is one of Vectorworks software’s smartest tools because it allows users to speed up their design workflows and simplify repetitive tasks, leading to impressive finished products. When Marionette made it’s debut, AECbytes Editor Lachmi Khemlani, Ph.D., commented: “From what I saw, Marionette seemed fascinating, and I would have to rate it as the ‘coolest’ feature I saw at this year’s AIA.”
