This MCG creates a weave pattern.

Thanks to har1sf0x who wrote the h_flipNormals compound !!! came in handy.

Ver 1.01.00: Added logic for seamlessness if to be bent into a tube. So when you bend so that the top meets the bottom (and Welder added) it will be seamless. Also added Skew options just for finer adjustments.

Ver 1.02.00: Updated to have no frayed edges. Also enabled seamlessness in X direction if it is to bent into a tube. Also added display of Resultant Columns.


I know there's a 'demand' for this script but I won't be so opportunistic and make it 'commercial'. All I ask is for those who can afford it, please donate something for the animals...

Any small donations to [email protected] would be greatly appreciated. I intend to then fully donate onto the following:

Thankyou. Meow. Woof. Moooo. Oink. Grrrl.....Bzzzz...

cheat ?

what about making the StripWidth very thin, add a shell for thickness, ie. you're making a 'square' tube...then turbosmooth it into a round tube ?

Tubular/cylindrical weave possibility

Would there be any way to create a weave so it was made up of cylindrical/tubular geometry?
Thanks.

are you asking why only max2016 ?

because lower versions does not have the capability, it simply doesn't know what mcg is. But I don't see why the same logic can't be written with maxscript, infact i was so surprise that when i searched for 'weave' it returned only 2 results !!! One with missing links and one with some unrelated rendering stuff...Seriously ??? No 'weave' script already ?

So i decided to 'mcg' one myself ;)

(please excuse me, my Vietnamese is very dodgy...)
