MCG Sweep Scale

You can use a Sweep to loft on multi-curve spline....but you lose the Scale functionality of the normal Loft. Enter this....MCG Sweep Scale.

Installation:

Then can be found in modifier list (naturally, you should add a Sweep first)


MCG BSh

0 votes

This MCG creates a bounding shape around your Spline. It was originally designed for splines...but you may use it for Mesh as well. This has the advantage over BBox as BBox cannot conform to the contours of your objects.

Installation: Scripting>Install Max Creation Graph...

Then can be found in Create>Shapes>Vu

Use it to obtain a 'footprint' of the object...or feed that footprint to Utility>Measure and get the length of the Bounding Shape.

Requirements: Max 2016 + Ext1/2 + SP3. Max 2017/18

This MCG will blend the last few frames of your (vertex) animated mesh so that it will create a seamless loop. Works directly on your mesh as a modifier, no need for 'cloning' around. You can also adjust Start/End of animation easily.

Installation:

https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/3ds-max/learn-explore/caas/CloudH...

Then can be found in modifier dropdown list.

This MCG will parse your spline by segment or element.

I will stress this on a separate line: Max 2016 requires Extension1/2 + SP3
