Brick Wall Builder

6 votes
Date Updated: 

Brick Wall Builder is a scripted plugin created using 3ds max MCG and as the name tells it creates a various shapes of brick walls with huge amount of flexibility like you can choose multiple kinds of stones and apply a random materials to them in addition to changing the position,rotation and scale uniformly or randomly. It's as simple as just picking the shape and the brick and it will do the rest, and when you are done with distribution you like and thought of changing the shape length do worry also has the ability of maintaining the count and distribution while you are doing so. 

How to install: After downloading and unzipping the file go to Scripting menu and choose Install Max Creation Graph. after installing you will find it in command panel creation tab under VFXarabia category.

Please for more info check the tool videos or the tool page on my website:

Additional Info: 

Update 1.1:

-I fixed the straight lines issue (in case your shape was a rectangle with straight angles for example).

-The parameters now in system unit.

-Increased the limits of some spinners.

-Fixed the min and max, so when you put one for min you will get one.

-Be careful if there is no objects in the end part list please do disable the end part check button or else the tool wont update.

Update 1.2:

-Random scale remapped and goes from 0 to 100 properly now.

-Adjusting the path vertexes on Z axis will mess up the bricks orientation in a weird way, now it's fixed and however you modify it it will stay pointing up.

Update 1.3:

-The bricks are one unit shifted on z axis when created, it's fixed now.

-Now the tool will preserve your bricks Material IDs and will not overwrite them to (1).

-I removed the proxy feature, it doesn't work as it's suppose to work. Instead you can apply BBox modifier to your brick.

-Since last update Side Shift uses the wrong direction, it's fixed now.

Update 1.4:

Error message solved : Can't find operator VuTransFormsOnCurve

I think in ex2 they Curve

I think in ex2 they Curve index, so I think you need to use this modified one.

and there is a problem in ext2 the random is not working properly, I reported this problem to autodesk.
