Multiple Boolean Union Plugin?

Before I go reinventing the wheel, I was wondering if there are any freely available plugins that allow you to put an arbitrary number of objects into a boolean so that you can perform a Boolean Union or Intersection with a large number of objects without having to nest the Booles. I've done some preliminary searching and haven't turned anything up.
Thanks!

Hey Donovan!

Have you tried just using the connect object?

Niklas Rosenstein has released a script in the last year - called "CompoundBooleUnion"
and do exactly what you want.

This script was part of the "pypline4d-master" free script collection.

Found it in the web or wrote him a mail and ask for.

edit:
Also you can use "rBoole" from plugins4cinema4d.

Regards,
Thomas

You can try MagicMerge from Nitro4d

MagicMerge is also a very good and useful plugin. The fastest boolean workflow!

But you must/can do the multiple boole operation only in one step.
If you want to arrange something after the boole operation -> you must have a copy of it or undo the step.

The two other plugins/scripts offer you more flexibility during the boole operation -> its all moveable and parametric, if you want.

All three are good, free and individual helpful. Try them

Thanks for the responses everyone, it looks like we've all seen pretty much the same thing.

Muckymouse - Connect works for some uses, but not for beveling which is one of my target cases.

Mr. Moose - I have seen that but was looking for something that would keep it live.

TBA3D - Actually, I'm the person that developed the Pypline4D scripts including CompoundBooleUnion. I'm glad to see that folks have found them and are using them. I was thinking about extending the script and was curious to know if anyone had already tackled what I plan to do.
