MCG Clonewolf

6 votes

another cloner ??? This Clonewolf allows both local rotation AND offset rotation to work at the same time !!! It also 'fits' the clones together using bbox instead of you manually fiddling around, it also allows mesh alignment for rotation so you don't have to fiddle with your object's subobj level.

MCG Randomize Elements

1 vote

Pretty basic modifier to randomize mesh elements, the difference from the existing ones is the possibility to specify an upnode, which serves as a reference system for all the transformations. That means that XYZ rotation are then parallel with the object's axes, same with translation and scale.

VA CloneOnCurve

5 votes

An extended version of the (AClone on curve) modifier that ships with 3ds max, this one adds the ability to read multiple curves per shape and distribute the clones based on the size of the mesh.

Update 1.1:

The new update brings the ability to control the number of clones incrementally, and if you edited the first point in your shape you can control were the clones start to appear of finish.


MCG SpacingTool

3 votes

This MCG is a Spacing Tool for splines. Unlike the default Max one, this does NOT intermittently disappear from your viewport !!! And it gives you rotation controls as well.

(You can use it on a mesh as well but it's best for curves)

MCG BifoldPlanes

0 votes

Bifold 'rig' for opening windows, doors procedurally.

Video you see is of BifoldPlanes.


- does NOT have Circular arrangement.

- does NOT have Alternate Hinges, ie. all are either top, bottom, left or right, instead of top+bottom or left+right combination.

- Effectors will use only pivot, not actual mesh.

To get BifoldPlanes to open up your windows, you'll first have to open up your wallet...
