Voluminance MCG

12 votes

Voluminance calculates the amount of light each vertex receives taking into account the distance traveled inside a mesh. A longer distance traveled inside means more of the light got absorbed resulting in a darker vertex color.

To view the result in the viewport enable the 'VertexColor channel display" in the object's properties dialog. For rendering you can you use the vertexcolor-map to drive material parameters.

MCG 32BitPatternMaker

10 votes

This MCG allows you to make tileable geometries. Works on just about anything that has a Tesselate on it.

(The 32Bit refers to 32 Tris you can use to form a pattern. It does not impose restrictions on your software version or op system, you need at least Max 2016 that is...)

Updated Ver 1.01: compacted boxes, added Tile Mode

Ver 1.02: checkboxes are now buttons, also added a few more patterns...check out latest video.

MCG Rings

9 votes

 

Rings for the mographers. Based on my VenetianBlind mcg, use this with a Bend to create rings of all sorts. Go nuts !!!

Combined with MultiSlicerRot

 

Ver 1.01.00:

  - Added Random X Offset so you can randomly move the strips sideways (this is the old 'RandRevolve')

Vu_mcgRope

8 votes

I modified the ARingClone mcg to have a twist with it and end up with a rope maker. Basically, you create 1 really tall cylinder, apply Vu_mcgRope modifier to it and define how many strands of rope and the amount of twist. Apply a PathDeform to your rope to shape it with a spline.

That's it. Any questions...I'm just trying my hands on MCG for the first time. It's free, of course. Vu. [email protected]

MCG FFS

8 votes

 Installation: Scripting, Install Max Creation Graph...

Max2017 should work straightaway, for max2016 ensure you have SP3 properly applied then Extension2 (maybe 1 would work too...can't be sure)

FFS...Floor Flux Sake !!! I empower you to take the Red pill or Blue pill....go into the graph and choose your destiny on the far right...Fastest compile time could be a second (Blue pills) or slowest (Red pills), with all functionalities, up to 15 secs !!! But once you've compiled the graph, it should be pretty quick.

MCG Curl a Spline

7 votes

REQUIREMENTS: Max 2016 + SP3 +EXT1/2, Max 2017 Installation: Scripting, Install Max Creation Graph... This MCG will curl a Spline, multi curve splines. Works with both Max 2016 and 2017, although in 2017 you'll get deprecation messages, it will still compile and run.

Ver 1.10: added Delay option

Ver 1.20: added Curl Axis so you can curl vertically (Y) or flat (Z)

MCG Stitches

7 votes

Create stitches along a path (multicurves supported). You are welcome to use the free variant Path Constraint but this has a few more controls.

ver 1.01: added Double Stitch option

 

ver 1.02: Added Cross Stitch option

 

Ver 1.03: added Zigzag Stitch option

MCG Path Constraint a.k.a IncrCloneOnCurve

7 votes

This MCG constraints your object motion to a path. The motion can be repeated forever beyond the curve.

It can also be used to incrementally clone object along a curve and there is no need to adjust the distance

between the clones and count when length of curve changes.

 

Ver 1.01.00: You can now use a curve to control scaling of the clones.

MCG Honeycomb

6 votes

This MCG creates a honeycomb structure.

Pretty sure you don't need a video for this one. It will appear in Create Panel, not Modifier.

Love bees people, without them who's gonna polinate your plants for you ?
