I was in the middle of

I was in the middle of creating a tool like this (pulling my hair out trying) and here it is! Great tool.

I just upgraded to windows7 and now my license file does not work. I downloaded it again and put it in Scripts/startup after a clean Max install but it is still in demo mode.

What can I do?

Hi Ben, I appreciate your

Hi Ben,
I appreciate your work and thanks for giving time to evaluate Parametric Array.
You are absolutely right. There is no measurement tool that allow you to specify the distance between the objects. But inside codes I have inserted some parameters that let me to add this function when you upgrade to new version. Parametric Array has extremely extendable core. Currently I'm working on new interface which holds these functions as extra options.
Regarding your second comment , I have two ideas. One approach is to implement the functions in C++ and get a modifier like Advanced Array in Blender. Second option is to create a plat form that users can make their own plug-in as result of current array. this would be something like FAMILY objects that you can make in Revit. I really like to discuss this with everyone who is interested. we have made a face book page for these sort of discussions and you are welcome to send your comments there (or on my blog.)

I am in the process of

I am in the process of evaluating this product to see if it would be a valuable addition to the arsenal of tools at the company for which I work. I watched most if not all of the tutorial videos and the potential seems great for this product, I have played around with it for a bit and I am very impressed

There are a few things I would like to get some clarification on before making the recommendation:

1. I could not find an easy way to distribute objects along paths with set distance increments. I assume that I would be able to mimic completely the features of the inbuilt spacing tool were I to plunge into the scripting portion of your tool, but before I devote any time to do that I just want to make sure it is possible.

2. The functions of this tool would seem much more usable as a modifier. Is this something that could happen in the future?

Thank you, and keep up the great work!

Hi spike, You should be able

Hi spike, You should be able to use the script for the limited number of items in each array. For the license please visit the following link:

Very nice and looks extemely

Very nice and looks extemely promising, I downloaded the script, installed as directed, a dialog box came up saying this version is a demo and to copy a licence request and email it for a licence, do I need a licence?
Can I use the script without one?

permanent installation(recommended): Extract the files from archive folder and copy them under script/startup.
if you have a license file then copy it as well.
On demand installation : if you don't want the parametric array comes up automatically then run the script form utility bar on demand.
