Some Python tools to Glue(Rivet) things onto Nurbs in Maya


These are a couple python tools i wrote for facial rigging in Maya.  One allows to glue(rivet) nulls onto a NurbsSurface(0-1 parameterized) the other allows to glue nulls to a nurbsCurve.

They both depend on builtin Maya nodes.  I used Python classes (object oriented programming) to try to organize things a little.  This was tested in Maya 2008.  There may still be some bugs.  Orientation not supported yet.  But hope you find them useful.  (Modify at your own risk)

example: nurbsCurve result

example: nurbsSurface result
