Duplicate a box to different sizes using table data.
Need to duplicate a box many times.
Each new box has different dimensions and associated name.
Each new box will be saved in new separate file.
This is a small sample of data that will be used (total table has 280 lines):
box name - legth - width - height
LB2043 - 5 - 2.5 - 2.5
SL2566 - 1.0625 - 1.0625 - 3.35
This code needs to run once for each box:
modPanel.setCurrentObject $.baseObject --entering sub object level
--set box dimensions
$.length = 6 -- how to get data from array in here???
$.width = 3 -- how to get data from array in here???
$.height = 6.2865 -- how to get data from array in here???
--center box in scene
$.pos = [-0,0,0.11938] --x,y,z
--save as a new file
sceneName = maxFilePath + "boxName" --how to put the "box name" here (example: LB2043) ???
saveMaxFile sceneName --save the file "boxName".max
How can this code execute, each time with new "boxName" and "box dimensions"?
This is my first attempt at max script. Any advice is welcomed.
