Maya create object at mouse position




I’d like to script (preferably in python) a poly plane that appears at my mouse position when I hit a keyboard shortcut. The polyplane I can do, but as for the rest - is that even possible? I have a lot of experience using python, but only simple scripts and functions. I can’t figure out how to get and set at the mouse position, and any help would be greatly appreciated.


Check out this stack overflow question and the documentation for the draggerContext command. draggerContext has options for how to project a mouse pointer position into 3d space . It is, however, kind of clunky but it’s a good place to start.
