View Full Version : some little help with basci maxscript?

02 February 2008, 05:09 PM
Hello there guys,
═ have no really idea about maxscript, and i haven┤t managed to make something very simple:

the idea is to select a bunch of vertices in a mesh ( wether in editable poly, edit poly or mesh poly select...) run the script and it will create a point helper per vertex selected, and in the position of each vertex...any ideas on how to do that?

thanks gurus of maxscript!

Hey metamesh, whasup?

There it goes:

vertArray = getVertSelection $

for verts in vertArray do
p = point()
p.pos = polyOp.getVert $ verts

if you want it to work with a mesh you just have to remove "polyOp." from the last line and it will work. I hope it helps.

see ya
