Some Maya MEL Scripts I Have Written Over These Years

Although most 3d software has a variety of tools that can help you to complete various tasks, scripting languages like MEL and Python are useful to simplify complicated tasks, in particular, certain jobs that are not available from the GUI. Therefore they have an extensive amount of functionality, and the potential value of their technical role will assist your project by speeding up complicated or repetitive jobs. Below you can find some scripts I have written over these years.
