Description

Visitor as function:
1. You place 10x nature object of different sizes (ranging 10-200 for example).
2. You click Tools - Replace object and replace the previously placed object with a new tree of similar model size.
3. As you can see the new object has proper direction, but size resets to default 100 or at least, random.

Visitor as script:
1. You place 10x nature object of different sizes (ranging 10-200 for example).
2. You click Script and use ExportObjects
3. The script doesn't have a function to export object size variable, only direction!


Old text:
Size of an old placed object is not taken into account when you use Replace Object tool or use script ExportObjects. Only rotation is correct, but size of a newly placed object is then random (when you select that under Nature) or 100 (Default). Of course that can be problematic when you have vegetation of roughly the same size you need to replace.

What means replace object?

Via configs or via v3?

What are the repro steps - which model to use?

Hopefully that makes it more clear.

Thanks. Understood now.

As workaround you may want to look into moveObject for now.

  • Subject changed from Replace object (exchange object) doesn't pick size to V3: ExportObjects script does not export (non standard) object size.

I'm not aware that Visitor3 got updated recently? Or you think we should rely on 3rd party tools that we use for years now, anyway?
