MCG Magnetic Filaments + DCP Van Gogh
Extract DCP to: C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2017 - 64bit\ENU\en-US\plugcfg\DataChannelPreset
After MCG installation, Filaments can be found in Create>Geo>Vu
Added MCG Magnets Advanced: going where DCM couldn't...(if you got my zip file from OneDrive previously, please get latest from here now...it now has Offset so you can get the Swirl effect)
ver 1.02: added option for Pointy or Blocky Filament shape, also can use Custom Mesh Filament.....but VERY slow compared to the native Pointy/Blocky shape...
ver 1.03: improved performance for Custom Filament
Important Note: the DCP should work on any geo (elements) underneath, ie. you could clone a bunch of elements yourself by hand if you want to, when you load the DCP it complains that MagneticFilaments is not present...this is due to the fact that DCP saves unneccesary / irrelevant info in the stack IMO...you can ignore the warning and just load the DCP and it would still work
