View Full Version : Moving points at certain value
06-01-2005, 08:03 PM
I select a row of points of a polygon object. Now all i want is to set every points x-value to zero (or any other number). Is there any way to do this without setting each value indivitually. Like a script or plug-in or a build-in max function???
Using Max 6 btw,
any help appreciated

no problem :)
simple make sure you have "select and non-uniform scale" selected from the scale button drop down menu (appears when you hold the scale button down). then right-click the button to open the "scale transform type-in". if you want all the verts to be on x-0, first of all type 0 into the x box of the "offset: world" section on the right. this will basically scale all the verts together in x to a value of 0, thereby giving them all the same x coordinate.
Next, right click the "select and move" button to open the "Move Transform Type-In", and with all the verts still selected, type in 0 on the x box of the "absolute: world" section on the left. now all the verts will magically be at x-0 :D
hope this helps :)
(maya has a MUCH quicker way of getting all your verts to 0.....just by holding down the x-key to snap them to the grid, and then drag them to 0 using the x-axis on the move tool. dunno if max has a similar way of doing this???)

i'll try that...although i think the way lightwave does it is great, there's a "set value" tool. U just type in 0, choose the axis and ta taaa..but anyway, thanks for thehelp
