Nice Script

Hi Jeff,

I tried using your script but was not able to get it right. I have the following questions, it would be really helpful if you can take some time to answer them,

1. Where exactly the part max files get saved? I dont get to see them and the batch file returns an error - "Error opening the scene file"
2. Does the script automatically change the output path for .fxd for all the part max files?
3. Once the part .fxd's are generated how can i get back them into a single scene?

Hi! This is a brilliant script!
But! Does it work in 3dsmax9? At the moment i'm getting an error "type error call needs function or class got undefined." this happens when i hit simulate locally. It all works up till that point!
