Push 2

6 votes
Version: 
1.4a

This scripted plug-in was wanted in the forum. It is like the original push modifier but with the option "Straighten Corners" of the shell modifier. You can "push in" and "push out".   -- Update V1.4a --

 

Additional Info: 

I finally updated to V1.1 :
-Correction of the reported bug.

Now if you change the topology under the "Push2":
first you will have a strange result but no more crash or error message of the script, then you will just need to update manually the modifier by clicking on "Push2".
I didn't find a way to automatically update without crashing Max (I have the version 2012).

Update V1.2 :
-Corrected the unwanted interaction with the modifiers on top of "Push2".

Update V1.3 :
-Convert the value into world units.
-Modify the name to "Push amount"

Update V1.4 :
-Corrected the bug with error message when applying the modifier to a selection with multiple objects.
Notice a limitation : you cannot instanciate this modifier.

Update V1.4a :
-Corrected a "Compile error" that was reported.

About shell

If you look carefully at the shell modifier, its last parameter is called "Straighten corners". I don't need to add it, it's already made !

This is cool, how about SHELL? =)

This is pretty cool, would be really nice if you could do the same for shell. I hate when the corners dont align with the rest of the polygons. what do you think?

ooops, I mean : can you

ooops, I mean : can you manage to calculate the real distance (display name is not the challange)

OK. In fact, it would be cool

OK. In fact, it would be cool to have a "distance" instead of "scale", because in every day job it is more easy to use distances. :-)

Scale parameter

I called it "scale" instead of "push value" because it moves vertices by multiplying the calculated vectors and is finally added to the current position.
It is just the same parameter as in the original "Push" plugin with a different name.
Of course, I could rename it if you want...
