Post subject:  PolyMesh Duplicator v1.2.1

********Update
v1.1: Added a command to separate the duplicated mesh into multiple objects.
The stack of the duplicated mesh must NOT be frozen (it needs the PolyMeshDuplicator operator).
Right now clusters, animation and uv coords are completely ignored.
The "separate" command is meant to be fast (hopefully someone will also make it feature complete)
because all the other scripts i found on the net are way too slow.
The commands have been moved to the "Modeling > Modify > PolyMesh" menu.
Added a "Move to 3D Grid with CopyID" ICE compound, to help make 3D Grid formations.
Source code is included.

v1.0 info:
Makes procedural duplicates of a polygonMesh object that can be manipulated in ICE.
Just like Houdini's Copy/Duplicate SOP.
I saw Guillaume Laforge's op here
http://www.vimeo.com/groups/ice/videos/6996197
and since i couldn't find his online, i decided to make my own.
Use it at your own risk.

For XSI 7.01 x86-x64 windows

Posted a video tutorial of it here:
http://www.vimeo.com/7218396


Update: Added "Random with CopyID", "Transform to PointCloud with CopyID"
and "Move to 3D Grid with CopyID" ICE compounds

Local copy can be found here: http://www.si-community.com/download/plugins/PolyMeshDuplicator_Addon_v1.2.1.rar

Usage:
Now you no longer have to open up an ICE tree to get it working.

To use "PolyMesh Duplicator for Pointcloud":
- Select the mesh that is used as instance shape.
- Choose Modify->Poly.Mesh->PolyMesh Duplicator for Pointcloud
- Pick the pointcloud to which the geometry should be matched.
- In the "Copies" field of the PolyMeshDuplicator operator, enter the
number of particles.

If you do not know the number of particles, you can
find it out by choosing View->Scripting->SDK Explorer. Then select the
pointcloud, choose "Object Details" and scroll down until you see: "Number of particles: xxxxx"

I only have 2010 SP1 x64 and it works
If you try to import scenes from previous releases (ex. 7.01),
you have to re-apply the operator,
because SI doesn't seem to properly connect it
(don't know why)

I attached a sample scene
(the forum doesn't allow uploads > 256kb, :-?
so it is split :-?? )

Thanks for your great tool!! :ymhug:

Is it possible to reproduce this effect with your addon?


http://vimeo.com/groups/ice/videos/6999806

http://vimeo.com/groups/ice/videos/6996197

And I would like to make, for instance, random distribution of these spheres, is it possible somehow.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Nassosy for you reply and the compound.
It is such a great tool, so as ICE. I am only a newbie, but sucking in ICE info..

Unfortunately I rather thought about the other movie, this one

http://vimeo.com/6999806

Can I attach your duplicated objects to another cloud points, just like in the above movie?

Highly appreciate you contribution to this small, hopefully fast-expanding community.
