Select Object By Material Name
Select Objects By Material Name
As the name implies this is a simple script for selecting objects based on the name of the material assigned to them. I originally wrote the tool to deal with a sketch up file that was exported for 3ds max, when it came in it had thousands of objects each with their own material, this made it very difficult to work with the file and this script was the result.
The script supports wild cards. For example if you have objects with material names like “AC01_GLASS_01″, “AC02_GLASS_02″ etc. You can drop in wild cards at the start and end such as “*GLASS*” which will select the objects that have an assigned material with a name that has the word glass in it.
