Big Thanks

This is just what I needed for a script I'm working on that handles UDK Collision, thank you! And yes

b1 = getNodeByName "Box001"
select b1

is certainly the fastest way to do it.

Cheers!

If your variable "a" refer to

If your variable "a" refer to the object itself:

a = $Box01
select a

But if "a" is just the name as string then:

a = "Box01"
select (getNodeByName a)

And there no "as object" conversion ;)

Yes. Just use getNodeByName function

b1 = getNodeByName "Box001"
