Obj2Spline Align

54 votes
Date Updated: 



A script that aligns objects along a path or spline. much more editable than the spacing tool. see how it works here or download complete package (with mini tut).

Additional Info: 

The script works fine here on max 9 (32 bit) and on max 2009 (64bit). Did not test on other versions.

The script is free so you may change and reuse it.

Version Requirement: 
3ds MAX 9

max 2010... so finally i did

max 2010...

so finally i did some test on a machine with max 2010 64bit version and i am sorry but i can not reproduce the error.

maybe the error occur when the spline is not a line or editable spline object so i insertet a request in fixtry 1.7 if a spline and a object is really selected/picked and in fixtry 1.8 i deleted the classof filter in the picked object dialog for the spline.

anyway please try version 1.7 first before 1.8. if the error still occurs please give me a max 2010 test scene with the object and the spline that do not work. if i can reporduce the error i might get rid of it.

with best regards

Hey man, the script looks

Hey man, the script looks awesome, and it's supposed to work in 3DS Max 10 I see above me here, but when I try to use it, I get the following error:

-- Unable to convert: undefined to type: Integer

Then it highlights line 101. Now I know what Integer values is and such, and I'm looking at it, I'm guessing that something need to either be some sort of string or some other reason I need to define something that is undefined. But since the only things on line 101 is " ) -- end for " I don't really get any smarter...

Please help? I would very much like to use this script, as the current on in 3DS Max, well, you allready prooved it flaws...

Patient (I'll try) and positive regards from Meph.
