Lattice as shape

Hello,

I was wondering if there is some feature (official or unofficial) that can turn a shape (model) in to a lattice.
Does this excist?

The Mesh Deform modifier may do what you want.

If you mean you want to solidify a mesh use this script http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2011=73

Do you mean like Rhino paneling tools? http://wiki.mcneel.com/labs/panelinggallery

I was also looking for this functionality, however in 2.62 blender version the script doesn’t show the panel which allow the change of the thickness. Also works preaty weird with sphere.

Object1 No Latice
Copy Object1 to Object2
Select Object2 Make Lattice. Apply
Now Select Object1 and Object2 and from the script window use Mesh Deformed to RBK
Now Object1 has the shape key for deforming mesh like object2
