Instance Tool

40 votes

Instance tool analyze the geometry objects in the scene and finds groups of objects that could be represented as instances of one of them. Then the user can turn every group into actual instances and choose which object from the group will be preserved. The objects in the group are objects that have the same topology (could be morph targets of one another) and the difference between them could be described with transformation alone.

Find identical geometry and instance it

34 votes

Everybody who have imported large amount of data from any cad system know that it normally kills the instancing. The intention of this script is to find geometrically identical nodes and instance them. This script will of course work if someone have used copy instead of instance in a scene and wants them instanced instead.

I'm happy to see that so many have tried out my Sunday hack that I made 5 years ago...but as it was only something to do for a Sunday its not really something I support. I would love to, but my daytime job takes all my time ;-)

Script makes instances of picked main object from all selected objects.
Target objects can be replaced (deleted, primary script function) or leave untouched.
New objects can copy scale or rotation from their previous versions.

Exaples:
Have some copies of some object (not instances) and want them change all same way.
- Convert them to instances, change them at once by editing just one.
