Voluminance MCG

11 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

9 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.

Combined with MultiSlicerRot

 

Ver 1.01.00:

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

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.

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]

Brick Wall Builder is a scripted plugin created using 3ds max MCG and as the name tells it creates a various shapes of brick walls with huge amount of flexibility like you can choose multiple kinds of stones and apply a random materials to them in addition to changing the position,rotation and scale uniformly or randomly. It's as simple as just picking the shape and the brick and it will do the rest, and when you are done with distribution you like and thought of changing the shape length do worry also has the ability of maintaining the count and distribution while you are doing so.
