    Radial Move - Modeler LScript

    Hi all!
    After lurking this forum for years and almost never writing anything I'd like to give something back to the community.

    This is a LScript I began to write in 2005, it sort of worked but probably not for anyone else but me. So a few weeks ago I needed it again and decided to update it a little. Now the script is hopefully a little more useful and I hope some of you may have some need and use for it.

    The need for the script came when I needed to alter the diameter of a simple straight pipe and still keep the wall thickness. None of the standard tools did what I wanted. Stretch for example didn't keep the wall thickness and also was very hard to control for exact measures.

    The simple task it performs is to move selected points in a radial manner from the center on selected planes. It can also move all point equally on all axis... Look at the pictures, they are explaining this better than my wording is

    The script doesn't work (very well at least) on bent, rotated, curved objects.

    I give this script to the community for free. Please copy it, give it to your friends, modify it to your liking but do not sell it for profit!

    Post any bugs you find here, I'll try to fix them when I got some spare time. But don't expect too much.

    Hope you like it, have fun

    I don't know why.
    As a user of various CAD programs and other modellers, inadequacies like this have always drove me mad about LW (but it's still the most intuitive, enjoyable one to use of the lot!)
