View Full Version : transform all my group of copied shape to a group of instanced mesh ?

How I can retreieve all transform of multiple object and use there information to create an instanced plane at every of these transform.

That's because I've copy many object but without instance, so I want to retreive all the transform and recreate a bunch of object with just one Plane_shape instanced at all of these coordinate.

thanks to reply if you've got a melscript for that ^^

select the plane you want to instance, then Ctrl+Shift select the rest of the objects and apply this:

string $sel[]=`ls -sl -l -fl -typ "transform"`;
string $instanceNames[];
int $len=size($sel);
float $position[3];
for($i=1; $i<$len; $i++)
select -r $sel[0];
$instanceNames=`ls -l -sl -fl -typ "transform"`;
$position=`xform -a -ws -q -t $sel[$i]`;
xform -a -ws -t $position[0] $position[1] $position[2] $instanceNames[0];
