shape node, fk

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.
