PEN Reset Xform is designed to make the task of resetting xforms on objects easier. This is done by automating the process of locating objects that need to have their xforms orthogonalized and or normalized. Objects that have been mirrored at the object level or scaled at the object level in any way will result in a transform matrix that doesn't have all of its axes at right angles to each other or the axes are not one unit in length.
Designed to ease the task of resetting the transform matrix on scaled or mirrored objects. Models that have had their transform matrix scaled by either using the scale tool at the object level or objects that have been mirrored using the Mirror tool in the main tool bar will exhibit strange behavior later in the pipe line. Scaling, especially non-uniform scaling will affect the children in a hierarchy, making them skew as they rotate. Modifiers like Skin will not work correctly as they are based off the object transform of the node that they have been added to. If the object transform has not been reset envelopes and mirroring will not work as expected.
Installation: Down load PEN_resetXform.mzp and drag and drop it in the Max view port. This tool is still in beta so it only being copied to 3DSmax\scripts folder. Marco scripts have not been included as of yet so the script will need to be run from the scripts folder for the time being.
