A RPM rotation contoller with affect multiplier.

A user requested this...so here it is...simple RPM controller.

Note: it works in Rev Per Minute, so it does not matter if you work in NTSC, PAL or whatever...


Ver 1.01: added Revs mode for the Revheads. This will spin your object N times for whatever the animation range is...Start time does not have to be at 0...

Loops from Surface

2 votes

Simple example of growing loops from open-ended surface. As such, it only looks for the first border and expands from there. Here it is shown on Cylinder with caps removed (default advanced sweep output would also work):

In your dreams, I give this to you for free...

Reality check, $5USD...

Here you can see I've gone in and deliberately deleted some segments so there's a mix of closed and opened curves in a spline....it will still work...

MCG Arches

2 votes

REQUIREMENTS: Max 2016 + SP3 +EXT1/2, Max 2017

Installation: Scripting, Install Max Creation Graph...

Creates various types of arches: Circular, Lancet, Trefoil, Ogee, Reverse Ogee, Inflexed and Horseshoe. Please note that I didn't follow any ancient building codec strictly to the letter...only that the curves are derived from perfect circular segments. Using the Curvature adjustment, you could get other arch types like Parabolic, Elliptical ...etc...

Creates simple spiderwebs with splines. Found in Create Panel>Shape>Vu


ver 1.01: added options to weaving.

Ver 1.02: Added gravity control for Spans

Inset Chamfer

6 votes

A pair of modifiers, the InsetBySmoothingGroup mcg modifier will inset mesh polygon groups by their smoothing groups, which helps to keep flat surfaces flat smoothed when chamfered instead of the usual mess. Keep in mind that for it to work, the smoothing groups should not be shared, i.e. no polygons that have both smoothing group 1, 2 etc. set. Note that the smoothing group edge borders are split afterwards, if you don't want that, you need to apply a Vertex Weld modifier.

Various FX on your face....of a 3D geo that is...

Free for Non-commercial use.

ver 1.01: fixed bug so that now all sides of a box (specifically +/-X) rotate about the edge correctly

MCG Spline Conform

5 votes

Get your spline to wrap onto a mesh or multi-meshes... Yes it is a bit rough around the edges, so it is what it is...

ver 1.01: bit more stable when tumbling around...

VA Mesh Conform

VA mesh conform

Well mesh conform is not someting new to 3dsmax but what if it was much more faster and responsive compared to the legacy one with straight forward parameters and options to tweak.

I created this modifier using MCG, it has all sort of options you might want such as:

- Projection direction: world axis or source object normals.
