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 Voxelizer

8 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'.

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...

MCG SimpleWeave

8 votes

 

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.

Inset Chamfer

8 votes

A pair of modifiers, the InsetBySmoothingGroup mcg modifier will inset mesh polygon groups by their smoothing groups, which helps to keep flat surfaces flat smoothed when chamfered instead of the usual mess. Keep in mind that for it to work, the smoothing groups should not be shared, i.e. no polygons that have both smoothing group 1, 2 etc. set. Note that the smoothing group edge borders are split afterwards, if you don't want that, you need to apply a Vertex Weld modifier.

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.
