Description: This MouseTool is made to help place a node onto the surface of some geometry based upon mouse click location. it will place the node by its pivot point and orient its local z axis to the normal of the intersection. (Additional: Added a new Ability to click and drag to rotate around the Nodes Local Z axis)  Hope its helpful to someone besides me. Heres the code... Enjoy

Mesh Surface

Creates surface defined by four splines. The order of picking the splines matters - they should form a closed loop. If you get a weird looking mesh, try once again starting with another of the four splines:

Note that if any of the splines are animated, the resulting mesh is animated, too.

Move To Surface

The following will let the user move objects along their Z axis to fit a specified surface. Such a script can be used to automatically plant trees, poles etc. on the ground.

This script is straight out of the 3ds Max MAXScript reference file. Its part of the MAXScript 'How To' lessons that teaches how to use MAXScript with practical problems. Load your MAXScript reference (the one that ships with 3ds Max) and do a search for 'align surface' and it'll be the first result.

I did not write this script I merely copied the code here as aligning to a surface is a very common request. Make sure to read the other 'How To' tutorials in the 3ds Max MAXScript reference - they're all really good!
