Version 1.2 - Add Interactive mode - watch the last video

Work with Editable Poly and Edit_Poly objects.

Cut quads and N-gons.

Save Preset system.

Works with edges and polygons on Editable Poly objects. On Edit_Poly objects works only with edges.

You can choose to Keep Quads when cutting.

For more information read Help.

Drag-n-drop miauuEdgeCutter_v1.mzp to 3ds max. Restart 3ds max. Go to Customize - Customize User Interface. Under "miauu" category you will find "miauu's Edge Cutter".

Strange, but I-mode does not work in max2011 and up.

This error occurs when you tried to install the script or when you try to run it(the installation is OK)? The version of Max 2015(design or not) does not matter.

I just tested the script on Max2015 - there are no problems. I've used the miauuedgecutter_v16_0.mzp.
