Hi, my fault. It's the new

Hi, my fault. It's the new "point cloud" option in the VRayProxy :) If you change near zero, all will be ok :)

ATiles object is very similar to Standard and Extended primitives in 3ds max.
Try to convert ATiles objects to Editable Mesh first and then export as VRay mesh.
I export couple of ATiles objects directly to VRay Proxy and the render was fine.

When you run the script noting happens because 3ds Max only load it to the memory.
To create ATiles object go to Crate tab (where you crate box, sphere ...) > from drop-down menu select Avizstudio Tools > select [ATiles] button

Huge problem with RoofTiles and VRayProxy

Hi atanasbak
very nice script. But, if you convert your ATile Rooftiles in a VRayProxy, the Proxy rendering is not correct. I think the ATiles rooftiles geometry is not compatible with the VRayProxy. It's possible to fix this problem?

Do not run the script. I start it and nothing happens any idea?

Wow! What a time-saver!

This tool is exactly what I needed to for various architectural modeling tasks. The first time using it was a breeze. I'm sure I will use it all the time now. Thanks a million!
