As is written in the script body - uncommend 2 lines

(
	if selection.count != 0 do
	(
		for o in selection do
		(
			objName = o.name
			if (objLayer = LayerManager.getLayerFromName objName) == undefined then
			(
				objLayer = Layermanager.newLayerFromName objName
	 			objLayer.addNode o
			)
			else
			(
				objLayer.addNode o
			)
		)
	)
)

It is easy to works for multiple objects, but what do you want the script to do - only to create empty layers with the same name as the object's name, or th crete layers and to put the objects in its layer?
Anyway:

(
	if selection.count != 0 do
	(
		for o in selection do
		(
			objName = o.name
			if (objLayer = LayerManager.getLayerFromName objName) == undefined then
			(
				objLayer = Layermanager.newLayerFromName objName
				--	uncomment the line below to add object to the layer
	-- 			objLayer.addNode o
			)
			else
			(
				--	uncomment the line below to add object to the layer
	-- 			objLayer.addNode o
			)
		)
	)
)

hi,

thanks a lot for the same. is it possible to have the script take multiple objects and do the same instead of one at a time.

there is another script which does it for materials

for m in scenematerials do
(
if LayerManager.getLayerFromName m.name == undefined
then NewLayer = LayerManager.newLayerFromName m.name
else NewLayer = LayerManager.getLayerFromName m.name
for obj in objects do if obj.material.name == m.name do NewLayer.addNode obj
)
saveMaxFile (getfilenamefile (maxfilename) + "_for_Revit.max") useNewFile: true

would be great to have something which is automated like the one above.

thanks a ton in advance.

			--	uncomment the line below to add object to the layer
-- 			objLayer.addNode selection[1]
