View Full Version : Geometry paint Help please

04 April 2009, 06:44 PM
Hi everyone,

I am reading the "Autodesk Official training MaxScript essential" and tried the mouse track example in the book to place my objects on a surface.

Everything works fine but I have no control over the distance between objects being placed on the surface.

Could anyone plz tell me how I can control the distance? Thanks in advanced.

Here is the code I have:

function myFooFunction message intRay obj faceNumber shift ctrl alt =

returnValue = case message of
if (obj != undefined) and (intRay != undefined) do

pot.pos=intRay.pos --position
pot.dir=intRay.dir --direction


#mouseAbort: (undefined)
#mousePoint: (undefined)
#mouseMove: (#continue)

I would store the position of the last created item in a variable and test if the newly created object is at least that distance away from the last created object. You could put that in the if clause.
