Copy and Paste Objects

105 votes

It's always annoyed me that I couldn't copy objects from one instance of max and paste them into another - as I work with 2 or 3 instances of max up at a time. It's tedious to do a save selected / merge objects so this script does it for you. It's not a TRUE copy/paste via the windows clipboard - but it will let you very quickly copy objects from one file to another.

A small tool for working with your texel density and scaling your UV-shells.

Some features:
Has a minimalistic Interface (similar to Maya)
Can Get and Set texel density.
Saves all of your settings (including window position) every time you close it.
Shows the most understandable values (px/m).
Works with different system untis (including non-metric).
Can scale UV-Shells horizontally or/and verically using custom pivot.

Requires Unwrap UVW modifier applied and active.

Works bad when:
UV-Shell is not convex (has no seams).
