Scripting bla bla bla
show user profile  Farks
I've had a big trawl through a load of videos and techniques, including dubs (the perfect start for beginners). However i'm struggling with it still. I'm attempting to do an exploded axonometric for and pavilion i've designed. It's made of many components and would take me an age to move each piece a specified distance.
Does anyone have a ready made script for this purpose, or know a good tutorial that could help me on this specific point?

Thanks, Tom

Does each piece have a general formula for how much they're moved and in which direction?
If they're all moved in their own specific way, I don't see how a script would help.

could you do something like appy a repulsive force across the surface of each object. when applied, it'd force things apart in a fairly generic way.

They would all need to move away from the origin at greater distances. The type of script i was thinking of would involve the position of each component moving a gradually increasing distance depending on it's original placement.

Ah, that's easy.

Just select the objects and type

Undo and change the multiplier until you're happy :)
