Haven't touched ASL in a while, but this seems possible. Probably a plugin would be best for this so you can make custom figures. The primitives required would be spheres (for the head and joints) and cylinders for the bones when rigging.

The only downside is you'd have to rig the body manually in figure mode (unless ASL has support for scripting bones). There's a couple good plugin script writers around.

I like the visual format of your questions neirao. It's very clear what you're asking for. Great suggestion!

Currently there is no way to create a new Object in ASL, so the obvious way of doing this won't work.

I suppose you could write an export script that writes a complete .an8 file containing all the separate Objects, then read that back in. This would be a lot of work however. What's really needed is a way to create new Objects directly in ASL.

How about going to object mode, select faces, press shift-d and repeat that ?
