Hey, with the transform, are you able to tick multiple axis? Would be cool, could be used to do 2d or 3d explosion forces.

Here's a snippet of code that converts wire color to A&D material's diffuse color

$.material = Arch___Design__mi showInViewport:true name:("mat_"+$.name)
$.material.diffuse = (myColor)

EDIT: I hate Garp, who is faster and better than me every time :)

But be aware there are already tons of randomizer scripts out there.
