This is a collection of macro script relate to construction plane. It started as an implementation of Modo’s work plane. It includes the following four scripts.

autoAutogrid
It allow you create a grid object. After the grid is made, the grid will be automatically activated, and all transform coordinates will be set to Grid.
The core functionality of this script has been in 3ds Max for long time. AutoGrid, Grid object, Grid coordinate. I just make more streamlined workflow.
If you want to go back to the default coordinate, Run this script again while pressing SHIFT.

LockWorkPlaneToOrigin
If you turn on this mode, the plane which face to camera will automatically become the construction plane.
If you want to go back to the default coordinate, Run this script again while pressing SHIFT.

AlignWorkplaneToFaceSelection
1) Select an object
2) Select face(s)
3)Run this script.
This script will make a grid object at the center of face and activate it. The ZAxis will be aligned to face normal.”

RemoveWorkPlane
Turn off workplane by deleteing the workplane from the scene. It is same as SHIFT+LockWorkPlaneToOrigin

It's a great script. I would

It's a great script. I would like to use this script for drawing freeform splines in the viewport like this: https://youtu.be/BinLlhiKgzY?t=452. But I can't seem to get it to work properly. I posted about it here: http://polycount.com/discussion/comment/2496332#Comment_2496332
