seems broken in max 2015 - needs further testing

A maxscript that gives the user more control over the bend modifier
It lets the user input a width and the script will move the center to get the correct width

features:

- uses smart snap to snap to a custom grid
- easily choose angle and direction
- apply new bend modifier with correct offset
- auto update current bendmodifier with selected settings
- realtime update of all settings!
- support for all 4 directions and 4 angles (90 180 270 360)
- choose your final width
- modify multiple selections at same time
- snap position to grid

how to use:

- have 1 bend modifier on top or click on the "new bend modifier" button to create one
- enter the start height in height (used to calculate the correct offset)
- angle buttons control the angle
- direction buttons control the direction
- manual mode: lets the user manually control the width
- grid size: choose the grid size to snap to
- snap grid: if on it will snap to the grid

feedback is always welcome!

Sounds interesting

Do you have any sample screenshots or video of the modifier in action? I'd like to see what it is capable of before installing the script. It sounds really interesting though.
