What it does

This script will duplicate (linked) an object and place the center of the duplicate objects at the selected verteces of the currently active object. An X,Y,Z rotation can also be applied to the duplicated objects. The script is useful when having to place a large number of windows, doors, balconies, etc. on a building mesh.

For example:

http://www.siafoo.net/image/9

Result:

http://www.siafoo.net/image/8

Usage

  1. In edit-mode select the locations where the objects must be placed
  2. Enter object to duplicate in text box
  3. Press 'Execute' and it will be so.

Note

Before using this script make sure that DupliVerts isn't good enough for your purposes.

ToDo

  • Allow for creating a parent and/or parenting all the objects to an empty
  • Pre-transform
  • Figure out problems with linked objects (the balcony thing)
