Loop Regularizer

Rearranges loops in regular n-gons.

Additional Info: 

This modeling tool works with edge loops on planar and curved surfaces as well as cross-sections and accepts multiple loops at once. Valid loops must be closed, not branching and not connected to each other.

Installation: Drop the .mzp file in a viewport. The macroscript is saved in the userMacros folder. The tool is accessed through the right-click quad menu of editable poly objects when in edge, border or polygon sub-object mode. When downloading the file, its extension is sometimes changed to .zip. Just change it back to .mzp before dropping it in max.

For further customization, the tool appears under Regularize Edge Loop (Poly) in the Editable Polygon Object category of the Customize User Interface dialog.

v1.1: Just a tiny change in the code.  Works the same but is a little faster and clearer.

Version Requirement: 
max 9 and above

Not working for 2017?

Hi im very new to the use of scripts in 3ds max so this might to user error but i cant get the tool to work on any type of poly object, ive tried a keyboard short cut and a tool menu button but neither seem to work. Any suggestions would be great thanks!

@anyone with issues using this;
'the script is in the package.
Rename .mzp to .zip
Extract the macro script file .mcr

..edit the file as needed.

Hey, just FYI - photobucket changed their policy and decided they don't want to let people use them as an image host anymore so your thumbnail isn't showing up.

Andrea, I tested it and it

Andrea, I tested it and it works fine for me in 2017. After you install the script, exit 3dsMax and restart. It will appear under Editable Polygon Object Category in your Customize User Interface panel as "Regularize Edge Loop". You can then add it to a hotkey, or put it in your Quads menu. It will only work on an Editable Polygon Object, not Edit Poly modifier. You need the updated script for that.
