MCG Pixelize Bitmap

0 votes

This would most likely be completely useless...but do I care about what you think....not really. It was an exercise in how to process 2D array (the bitmap) in 'clusters'...so you can learn the technique from here if you can be bothered.

Installation:

(2018 can be drag & drop mcg into viewport)

MCG Voxelizer

7 votes

 

Bob the Boxelizer added some bells and whistles to Christopher Diggins' Voxelizer in the Sample Pack. Probably more useful to mographers....or use Bottom up method to illustrate 3D printing..

Video here: http://1drv.ms/1Itid08

Ver 1.01.00: the voxels are now 'cubic', ie. uniform in all dimensions, not oblong if your orig geo was oblong. Also added option to pick building block instead of default 'box'.

What's there to say really...

Installation for Max 2016/17: (2018 can be just drag+drop)

Then can be found in Create>Shapes>Vu.

MCG Simple Branches

0 votes

No....not L-system. Instructions here, don't ask me to hold your hands...the very least you can do is read a bit... http://area.autodesk.com/learning/mcg-whats-new-2018--sample-pack

If you're ultra lazy, you can just drag 'n drop the mcg into the viewport.

(of course, it can be done with 2016/17 too..but I ain't going backwards..)

A RPM rotation contoller with affect multiplier.

Loops from Surface

2 votes

Simple example of growing loops from open-ended surface. As such, it only looks for the first border and expands from there. Here it is shown on Cylinder with caps removed (default advanced sweep output would also work):

MCG Animate Visible To Camera

1 vote

Since you can't animate the Visible To Camera property...(well not that I know of a way...) use this to 'control' it. Watch the vid.

Eureka !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At last, an MCG modifier that modifies SELF NODE !!!! This may open a whole giant can of giant worms....

 I suggest you use the modifier version, VisToCamMod, IMO is the most userfriendly..

MCG Quad Angle Selector

0 votes

Tool to select quad faces where the angle of the 2 tris is more than Tolerance level. This is a SELECTOR only, what you do with the result is up to you, it does not auto-alter your geometry.

MCG Spline Conform

6 votes

Get your spline to wrap onto a mesh or multi-meshes... Yes it is a bit rough around the edges, so it is what it is...

ver 1.01: bit more stable when tumbling around...

MCG Zoolinderrr

1 vote

Annoyed that the default Cylinder doesn't allow more than 200 in Height/Sides/Caps seg count ? Stooooooopid, Zoolinderrr is waaaay betterrrrrerrrr... (ok, there is a limit of 9999 but who's counting ? Especially male supermodels)

Use in cases where you need to stretch your longfellow along a really really long path and you need lots and lots of segs...

(The Weld in MCG is crap so use a Welderrr instead)

No there's no video !!! Just print out this picture and slap it on your bedroom wall....Zooweet dreams...
