Arrow Size and fill object

I need this arrowhead as a fill object with all edit features including a spinner to control arrow size also when I create arrow from the custom shape it needs to build upon spline not far form spline.
If possible please help me...
I have created a spinner for that and working on this script but didn't understand how to do this so far...

Shape request ?

Hi Lord,

Can you do a shape request script ?

This 'Wide flange' shape in Extended splines in max; can you make its flange and body thickness independent into seperated spinner-thickness ?
Would be nice if this goes for the 'WRectangle', 'Angle', 'T' and 'Channel' shapes as well.

Tnx

Object disappear when copying

Hey, thanks for this awesome script. I'm using this as a base for my scripted house. I'm having a problem whenever i copy the primitive it disapears. Do you know why it happens and if there was a work around. Thanks for sharing your scripts with the world.

Depends - tell me what you're

Depends - tell me what you're missing. I definitely want to keep it simple, no unnecessary features / visual bloat.

If you're on max 2016,

If you're on max 2016, install service pack 2. If you have lower max version, it won't work, there's no simpleSpline class.
