fantastic tool, Chris. I like it a lot! :ecstatic:
(how about an additional 'move' function? for offsetting each group/component...)

Great script, but may I suggest a few enhancements:

I'd like to be able to rotate and/or scale randomly within a min to max value, a selection of components by a chooseable local axis. (I.E. each components axis.)
This script only works on the global/world Z axis, right?
Preferably the user should be able to choose X, Y or Z or any combination of them. And choose between Local or World axis.

"Why would you want that?" you may ask.
Well I've spent some time making trees and this would speed it up considerably.
I can think of other uses as well... :)
Let me know if I need to explain better what I want.

I think it might exist already, so correct me if you are thinking something more. If you select "axis" it will scale and rotate on each component's local axis.

Does that do the trick?

Do you have the name of that plugin? Or do you mean you think its already in your script?

Chris


Thats right but your script only rotates around the Z axis?

I would like to be able to select x, y, z axis or any combination of them. Like three checkboxes one for each axis. Or a drop down menu.
(It should still have Z axis as default.)
And a checkbox for scale and one for rotation so you can have the script do just one of them or both in a easy to use way.
If you want I could make a image explaining what I want.

Ahh, yes. That makes sense now. Correct. the script only rotates on the z axis.

Part of the problem with the checkboxes is that I would need to use web dialogs to make that work, and at this point, I have no clue how to do that. I could probably get all the options implemented using the default SU inputbox (expanding the current one), but that inputbox is very clunky and I don't love it. But I'll think about it and see if I can think of an easy way to get it all into the inputbox and not make it too overcrowded and difficult to understand.

If you'd like to mock up an image, that would be fine with me too! Thanks Jan, you've been a great help on this script,

Here is a mockup of a possible interface without a fancy web dialog.
"Scale about" is same as current version.
Should maybe change name to something like: "Origin"

Hi! first of all, great plugin!!
i have a suggestion: is it possible to have an "aplly" button in the plugin interface? i mean, sometimes is good to play around with the settings, and when you hit "ok", if you want to play a little more, you have to go all the way down again and set everything again.....so, i think an aplly button will help a lot, because it wont close the plugin window, so you can change the settings and aplly them again in the same window!
anyway, this is a very useful script, thanks a lot!
regards from brasil,

Jsrocha

Muito obrigado amigos!

@jsrocha I am learning how to use web dialogs, so once I get that down, I would be interested in trying to update some of these scripts to use them. One of the biggest benefits is the abilty to have an easier ability to implement things like you requested. I suppose I could do it without a webdialog, but it seems like it would be easier to control in a web dialog.

@accabrera - Thanks, glad you like it!

Chris, is it HTML, JavaScript or the linkage between these and Ruby (or all three)? I'm planning a frontal assault on the latter (rewrite Lininger but going much slower) which I could kick up to the front of the line. I've done HTML (http://www.easyHTMLtutorial.com) and am mulling on JS.

Hi Martin, I'm not even sure what it is that is holding me up. I don't know HTML at all. I don't JS at all. And I have no clue how they interact. So reading through JS tutorials leaves me confused because I don't understand what its doing tot he HTML. Reading through HTML tutorials seems to help the most currently. So I will gladly look over your HTML tutorial.

I just got a report that this might not be working right in 7.1!

So if you use it and it moves components all over th place, instead of just scaling them, please let me know. I need to look into it.

But otherwise I hope you find it useful :)

Can any Mac users verify if this script is working on SU 7.1? It appears to working great on Vista, SU 7.1 but I still have a report or two of it not working.

Anyone have any example files where it is not working for them?

Thanks

Thanks Thom!

I should mention what is not working for some, just in case you just verified it loaded.

I have heard 2 or 3 reports of this plugin thoring components all over the place, instead of using their axes. It seems that for some, this plugin does not scale and rotate according to the specified axes.

So if anyone still feels like testing further, awesome. Otherwise, I'll write a debugging version and give that to anyone who wants to test it out, see what is broken on their system.

Thanks again,

Chris

I just tried the random rotate and scale. That worked as expected. But if you have specific procedures that's reported to fail, then I can try that.

When I choose component base everything was o.k. though. :?:

Has it been on all components? or is just on face-me perhaps?

I tried with groups, components and face-me components. Can't reproduce.

...maybe it has to do with nesting..?
