7 votes
Date Updated: 

This script allows us to quickly create a wall using the shape (linee, text, circle ecc..)


----- Features

-- support for multiple objects
-- reverse knots order of selected spline or all "attached" shapes
-- 2 modes: use offset shape and extrude modifier method or combo with extrude and shell modifier which is more flexible solution for sure
-- created modifiers can be instance or copy

-- wirecolor option (solid or random color)
-- option for unique name

-- Extrude props: Segs, Map Coords, Caps
-- Shell props: Segs, Autosmooth, Override Inner - Outher - Edge Mat ID (always use the form "number-number-number" ei. "1-2-3" or "3-2-1" or ...)
-- Auto multimaterial (for edge-shell mode) with tree custom diffuse colors
-- Convert selected shapes to spline shapes

Many thanks for the MCR file. Works great now :)

It would be nice to have a few 'custom presets'.... instead of having to fill in menu.

Ariel_G has created a 'Reference Guides' tool for creating construction lines.
But nobody yet has made a good 'tape-measure' that works as smooth as Sketchup.

This would be the Holy Grail for all architects. A measuring system that helps you place windows, doors, walls and lighting very quickly.

That's because is not macro script.
Drag & drop *.mcr file into the viewport and you can find it under category "Michele71"

I really like this tool. Perfect:))))

I have crossed over from the happy land of Sketchup to the dark world of Max and have to really think before I do anything now. I don't like editing pologons or extruding cos it's too much micro mangaging. I prefer to use the spline and box to create buildings onto imported Sketchup plans.

This tool has made something that SHOULD be very simple... simple again.
It's a thing of beauty!

It's great to finally find a script I can relate to.

Many thanks.

PS - But, I cannot find it under 'customize tools'.

All your scriptz are belong to me!
