Select By Size / Volume

15 votes

This script allows you to select objects by their size or volume, by checking their
- bounding box size (= bounding box volume) or
- the actual volume of the mesh (the calculation function for this is taken from the MAXScript manual, I think Bobo is the genius behind it ! :-) )

a mini utility show the boundingbox of selected vertices,
as well their Min/Max boundary in world space coordinates.


measure single selected node (selection[1])
works with any geometry node that has .mesh value
allows one floater rollout at a time

Create Animation Bounding Box

15 votes

Script I built to work with Fume FX, but can probably be used for many other things.
The idea is that I wanted to roughly work out the entire dimensions of a characters animation, so a bounding box - of the entire animation.
Lets say I have a character running, and jumping, and falling over - and I want him to be on fire, this tool will track all of the dimensions of the character for the entire animation duration and build a bounding box representing the exact area he's covered.
This way I can create a fairly accurate Fume FX container that isn't wasting space.

Called anytime the selection is changed the script shows in the prompt line (lower right corner, next to the listener ;) the dimensions (as integers) of the selected object in the current units.

Comes very handy while working with interior/exterior scenes. to me at least :)
