It takes a selection and copies it in XYZ a desired number of times, applying spacing, rotation and scaling. It makes some weird 'growths', but I can also see its use in making helical steps etc...

Usage : Move/Place Objects, Select them and pick Grow.
Pick Point, Enter desired data in dialogs and see results. Undo is 1 go.
Un-grouped Faces and Edges can stick together after 'Growing'.
Play around to see types of results...
Shape, location, scale, order all produce different results...
Linear Scaling goes 1 2 3 4 5 6 7... on any scaling factor
Exponential + goes 1 2 4 8 16 32... on any scaling factor !=1
Exponential - goes 1 1/2 1/4 1/8 1/16 1/32... on any scaling factor !=1
Fibonacci + goes 1 1 2 3 5 8 13... on any scaling factor
Fibonacci - goes 1 1 1/2 1/3 1/5 1/8 1/13... on any scaling factor
Version : 2.0 20070218 Added Grow Pointer cursor.
Dialog 'Use Scaling' > 'No' = no scaling.
Now Linear, Expo' + & -, and Fibo' + & -.
Order of XYZ rotation changeable.

Additional Info: 

Unzip Grow.zip.
Put Grow.rb into ../Plugins/ folder.
Put growCursor.png in ../Plugins/Icons/ folder.
(make this folder if it doesn't exist)
If there's no cursor icon you'll get a reminder beep instead.
