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

Great product but I have this problem

I can not use the tool when there's modifiers on the object, its only usable when I am in editable poly mode with no modifiers applied, I saw people using it in edit poly modifier but I couldn't, please let me know what I can do

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.
