Takes a selection and reduces the selection to include only a single instance from each set of instances.


Make a sphere and instance it once. Make a 3rd sphere, copy it once. Select all 4 spheres. Run the script in UI mode. Hit Do. Now your 3rd, 4th and either the 1st or 2nd sphere is selected.

Copy Replace

35 votes

Turns a selection of objects into instances or references of another object.

Fixed in v 2.0:

  • Instances outside the selection are not replaced anymore. (Thanks to Anubis)
  • Added the option to choose between instance or reference
  • Changed the "Button name" to "Copy replace"

A toolbar button that replaces the selected objects with instances of the object you pick after hitting the button. In other words - a UI version of maxscript's InstanceReplace command.

Little utility to copy/instance and parent many objects at once
