Hi Chris, Many thanks indeed

Hi Chris,

Many thanks indeed for your quick reply, I know have it working. When you mentioned 'editable poly' I knew that must be the problem (and it was) because I always work in editable mesh. I just need to temporarily change the part to editpoly to run the script, then back to editmesh again.

Thanks again Chris.

I don't have Max 8 but I don't think there is anything about this script that would keep it from running under 8...

I just ran it in 2009 and it worked fine - I collapsed an obj to editable poly, selected 2 verts and ran the script and it aligned the pivot to an axis created along the line between the 2 verts. Note that it doesn't work on editable mesh or objects with an edit poly modifier. It only works on collapsed epoly objects...

Hi, Great to find such a script, I've been looking for exactly this function for a long time. However, I cannot get it to work in Max8. Could you provide some basic instructions please ? I have installed properly and icon is present on my toolbar.

Many Thanks.
