@captaindrewi: if you didn't see the link at the bottom of that post maybe you weren't logged in, as for the video that's strange that you were redirected to my italian homepage, clicking the link should have asked you to save the file... Try right-click & "save as". Someone else had the same problem?

@neirao: obrigado! Thanks for the info :)

You're welcome Captaindrewi, I take the chance to say that I'll be glad to see the works made with the help of this tool (yours as well as anybody else's). I'm not really a modeler, hope somebody could make good use of it. As usual feel free to ask for improvements (meanwhile I'm giving a try to Neirao's suggestions).

Grazie a te per il tuo interesse, Dajean!   *

I think I'll put the links in one of my website's pages though, also because I think internal linking it's more correct towards the people who are hosting my pages.

I've saw the video again... oh well, "tutorial" is a big word for that video... lots of time wandering with the mouse and no real explanation... maybe I'll remake it.

(* "Thanks to you for your interest Dajean!")

i have managed to have a few goes,dont think i would have got very far without the vid.
the column of buttons on the left side of animator start blinking frenetically whilst using the script, cpu usage around 70%.
running on a vista laptop.a bit worrying but it didn't blow up!
it's a very exiting tool...fabulous work.

Yes just like the mirror script, this script makes the processor run like hell... I'll have to remark it in the post above and not only inside the script comments, thank you for the reminder. I use to keep the mouse button down for moving the magnet even if I'm not actually moving it, because the script stops and leaves a bit of relief to my poor 1.5GHz. I also use to turn it off when I'm dubious about the next modeling actions... that is more or less always, eheheh

Have fun and thanks again for the interest.

I've fixed the "all-coords" part of the script, which was quite wrong (see the attached picture to view the different results).

I'm also updating the package attached to this post.

Download it again if you like.

Have fun,
Francesco

Well done!  I have to say this is a very nice looking script.  It gives a nice sculpting quality which is great.  I definitely want to try it out.

Great Script Francesco ;D

Just one thing. Would it be possible to use any mesh as the MAGNET object?
This would be really helpful.

Yes, you can use the mesh you want, but it will behave as a sphere anyway. I guess you mean something like the cloth tool suggested by Neirao, well, I'm working on that, but I'm afraid you'll need quite a good machine to run that script.
