this scripts does the same thing as a free plugin GLUE does, namely it glues objects to a surface. i've written this sript because i was tired of necessity of looking for new recompiled plugins with every new max release. and this script can do a bit more than original: it can align glued objects to normal, and you can glue along any vector, defined with tape helper object. more with newer version - vertex projection, eye ray, more precision

hm... the script processes EVERy object in selection, if you want to glue a group of objects, perent all of them to a dummy (or simply have a parent for all) and then just glue the parent object, all other will follow the parent.

 

and there is a newer version which supports perspective views and cameras

I tested the script on a

I tested the script on a forest terrain by selecting ground plane and approximately 180 trees (each tree is agroup ; all 8 variations).What happens is that it uses only 1 variation out of the 8 + some elements of the group depart away from the others.Is it possible to work with groups and how ?

Nice tool !! If only there

Nice tool !!

If only there was a Scatter tool like the native Max Scatter that would support multiple source objects and the "Distribute Using All Face Centers" option ;) Filling a theatre with people looking in the direction you want would be a breeze.
