Program Area Study (Area controlled Cube and Cylinder) 2.8.3

Author: TOI - T. Welman
Date: 2006-02-28


UI to create cubes or cylinders with fixed ground area. You can change the length/width while keeping the same ground area.

Tip: This script is part of the TOI Maya Toolbox. It's a collection of scripts with an easy-to-use installer.
The TOI Toolbox is available for download from our general downloads page.


1. Source the script.
2. Start with toi_programAreaStudy();
3. Use the UI to create objects and use the scale-tool on the created object-controller (locator; selected when created). You can change the total Area in the channelbox. You can use the X-scale to determine the shape.
You can also use Excel to create a list of names and areas to automate creating cubes.

The tool creates specific hierarchies of objects. Use the buttons provided in the interface to move, rotate and scale the objects. This ensures the proper object from the hierarchy is selected for each operation.
