Ms -- script for piling up primitives that have a height parameter These lines are comments that define the script. In addition, you might want to add your name, the date you created the script, and any other details you deem necessary. The script will operate on objects already in the scene, so the first thing you need to do is make a collection of these objects. 3. In the Editor, add the following line: coll = $* -- Puts all objects in a collection named coll Before creating a loop to go through the objects, you need a variable to hold the Z position for the next object in the loop.

The expression is evaluated to a Boolean, and the result is assigned to the variable test. Also,the script statement while test do is equivalent to while test == true do. 46 Collections III Collections The term collection describes any grouping of objects or values that 3ds Max keeps track of. Arrays are one type of collection. An ObjectSet collection is a special type of collection maintained by MAXScript. Its contents automatically change with scene changes. For example, the objects collection holds the scene objects at any given time.

Fill in array elements for the cylinder objects. Youdefine the first element to be the cylinder height, the second its x position, the third to be the cylinder's name, and the fourth to be the modifier you are applying. 0 cylobj2[3] "second cylinder" cylobj2[4] bnd 5. Build an array of cylinder description arrays. my_cylinders = # (cylobjl, cylobj2) To access an element from cylinders, you use cylinders[i] [j], where the first index [i] refers to the cylinder description array, and the second index [j] indexes into the cylinder description array.
