No matter your level of programming experience, here’s a chance to jumpstart your understanding of data-driven design and embark on your own scripting adventures. Listen in on our four-part, on-demand Marionette Monday webinar series as our algorithmic expert Sarah Barrett explores the new graphical scripting tool in Vectorworks 2016 software, covering everything from the mechanics of nodes and networks to creating lists and running scripts. So grab a cup of coffee and then dive into these one-hour webinars. Bonus: U.S. AIA members can take the tests linked below to earn 1 AIA LU credit for each webinar.

The first webinar in the series tackles the building blocks of Marionette: nodes!


Take a deeper look into the Vectorworks node library, the process of creating parametric objects, and the importance of using lists in part two.


In session three, discover how graphical scripting can be used to create and manipulate objects, as well as analyze them.


In the conclusion of the series, Barrett discusses how to leverage the Internet when working within Marionette. She also covers the coding language that Marionette is built in: vector script and Python.


Calling all AIA members! After you’ve finished watching the series, take these tests to receive one AIA LU for each webinar.

Be sure to check out our Marionette community forum to view all the referenced files in the series, ask questions, and engage with other scripters. For additional how-to videos and sample files, you can also check out our Marionette resources page, which is updated regularly with new content.

Finally, now that you have a foundation for your scripting success, test your skills and compete for bragging rights, as well as awesome prizes, in our Marionette virtual fair. You can even reserve a one-on-one session with our experts to finesse your project prior to submission.
