    Take a simple look at the description page here and find: Installation: Just copy the script to any script directory that is accessed via maya. Run the script by executing “icPolyScatter” (without quotes) in the script editor. You may as well build a shelf button for easy access. Also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUkS2IwU19s Hope that helps.

    How do you run the script? By loading it in the script editor and then execute it? If so, this is not the right way to run it. What are your steps to reproduce? It's not a known error and the script runs fine for everyone else.

    Ok, that is how I ran it. How am I supposed to run it? Thanks for the quick response.

    I've used Maya for years, but stayed well away from MEL. So apologies if I am a little lost.

    Thank you for your assistance, works now. Having trouble getting it to scatter a water droplet around a bottle, the script keeps making a massive whirlwind of the droplets around it. Changing the offset doesn't appear to be doing anything. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    I just tested you described setup and the script works fine. One thing to note would be that your mesh you want to scatter on needs to have freezed transformations. But other than that I would need a sample and exact description of what you are doing...
