Instance Tool

47 votes

Instance tool analyze the geometry objects in the scene and finds groups of objects that could be represented as instances of one of them. Then the user can turn every group into actual instances and choose which object from the group will be preserved. The objects in the group are objects that have the same topology (could be morph targets of one another) and the difference between them could be described with transformation alone.

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"

Find identical geometry and instance it

34 votes

Everybody who have imported large amount of data from any cad system know that it normally kills the instancing. The intention of this script is to find geometrically identical nodes and instance them. This script will of course work if someone have used copy instead of instance in a scene and wants them instanced instead.

Added 2015:
I'm happy to see that so many have tried out my Sunday hack that I made 5 years ago...but as it was only something to do for a Sunday its not really something I support. I would love to, but my daytime job takes all my time ;-)

What's new in version 2.0 :

AutoPlace

7 votes

This is a script like autogrid. You can move, instance and copy objects all over the place! ShiftPress the button for options (move, instance, copy, lock rotation and lock scale)

How it works: select an object and press the button. click and drag (left-right = scale, top-down:rotation)

If you select multiple objects it will choose a random one.

tested on Max 2012/2013

Scatter a list of objects across a surface, you can make them randomly change the scale, rotation and tilt. For example placing trees, plants, rocks, etc.
