Any way to copy from object to another object, same format, another object? It looks confused, I don’t know if you could understand.
Hello - do you mean you’d like to copy object attributes - layer, color, material etc etc from one object to another?
MatchProperties may be what you are after… otherwise I need an example.
No Pascal, i mean copy like copy by point, but, same angle. Something like “Copybygem” from Rhinogold, you know? Copy from object “A”, the object “B” to multiples objects “A”, same angle, adjusting to each position. Got it?
OrientOnSrf may also help here.
Yes, I already use Orient and OrientOnSrf. I’m looking for something that I don’t have to do one by one, something like copy from something, but with “automatic adjustment”. There are like hundreds a day, one by one is something that slows me down a lot, looking for something more efficient
Yep, that sort of operation is why Rhinogold and other plug-ins exist.
Got it, thx
If the source <> target objects were all block instances it would be relatively easy to script. Is that the case?
Yes, it is the same format as the object that will be copied from, exactly as in the image above. The cutter should align with the objects it was copied from
Are the objects you are trying to align Block Instances ?
AFAIK in Rhino only block instances are “aware” of their position based on block insertion point and plane, so based on that info they could be mass-aligned together. Otherwise it would not work, or at leas could be difficult in all cases, depending on the objects geometry.
Maybe you could upload a sample file.
ill try send to you an example
Here is a script that would do it, provided that the destination objects and source objects are block instances:

Coooool! I’ll try it!
