How To Use

  • Run once to activate macro (the macro is loaded resident into the memory of the PC).
  • Press G to grab the contents of the 3d view and copy them to the clipboard.
  • Press Q to quit.

PS: if you wild other format modify the values of the line number 33 ex:

line 33 : glw.resize(640, 480) # reduce the SubWindow

to

Line 33 : glw.resize(800, 600) # reduce the SubWindow
