The function of the script is very simple, it generates a NURBS circle shape node for a selected joint. Generally intended to help when setting up FK joint chains. I have found a few other uses in the course of various projects such as in toon-arm setups, or really any other situation where a joint requires a simple shape.
To-Use: Select only a single joint and run the script, the resulting shape node can than be adjusted in component mode as needed.
Please feel free to use this script or any part of it as you see fit. I believe very strongly that the free exchange of tools in the creative community serves to strengthen it. I do ask that if you make use of this tool that you inform me via the contact page on my website www.chrisrigs.com. Also, feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions you may have as to how this tool could be improved. I can make no guarantees that I will have time to address these of course, but I do like to update my tools periodically, and feedback from people who have found them useful is always appreciated.
