miauu's Script Pack is a set of scripts that will help you to make faster and easier some of the tedious task when you use 3ds Max.

miauu's Script Pack include:

Visual Pivot Placer offers you the fastest and easiest way for manipulating the pivot of single object or of a group of objects. There are two additional scripts. The first one allows you to set the pivot of the selected object to the center of the selected verts, edges or faces by usnig the assigned hotkey. The second one allows you to set the pivot of the selected object anywhere in the scene by using the assigned hotkey.

In-Volume Scatter is a tool that allows you to create clones of one objects and place them in the volume of desired geometry object. You can scatter objects in 3D or 2D shapes. Also, you can use In-Volume Scatter to randomize the position, scale and rotation of the selected objects. You can scatter multiple objects at once and you can select objects and removes collision between them.

Orbit viewport around picked point offers a new cursor based camera navigation, which allows you to easily orbit around specific areas of focus, because the point of interest is automatically placed on the geometry under the cursor when you begin navigating. To work properly you must be in Orbit Selected or Orbit SubOjbect mode. You can use the "Alt", "Shift" and "Ctrl" keys to make your navigation more comfortable.

Alt+click will execute the "zoom extents" to the object, in which is placed "the point of orbit".
Shift+click will place "the point of orbit" and will execute the "zoom extents" to "the point of orbit".
Ctrl+click will place "the point of orbit" and will execute the "zoom extents" to the object, in which is placed "the point of orbit".
You can set "the point of orbit" in object, that is a part of XRef scene. Note that in the scenes with thousands of objects, there will be a delay between the time when you click an object and you can start orbiting.

Nested Isolation allows you to have up to 10 levels of nested objects isolations. You can move objects from one level to another, to add new objects to any level. You can enter in isolation mode even if you are not in top sub-object level. This work for Editable_poly and Editable_mesh objects.

 

Multi Dirs Save allows you to save current max file in several locations on local or network hard drives.

Clone between is a tool that allows you to specify how many clones you want to create between two points. The created arrays are parametric. At any time you can go back and made changes in your arrays. You can set the distance between the clones with accuracy.

Align Tool offers you a new ways to align two objects - parallel, coplanar, perpendicular, interactive normals align and 3 points rotate and align.

 Live Measure v2 allows you to measure the length of edges, segments or splines, area of faces, dimension of objects, distance between the active camera(Camera view) and the selected object, distance between objects, distance between points in real time and the angle between three points.

miauu's Scale Tool is a tool that allows you to scale the desired object, to desired dimension with few easy steps. This tool is very useful when you import or merge objects, that's not match the scale in your scene. Supported objects are Editable Poly, Editable Mesh, and objects with Edit Poly modifier on the top of the modifier stack. You can scale groups, can set the dimensions of the objects by entering numbers(units) instead of percentages, can match the dimension of two objects or groups.
 

Set Edge Length is tool that allows you to change the length of the selected edges or segments to desired value. Supported objects are Editable Poly, Editable Mesh, Splines(Line and Editable Spline) and objects with Edit Poly modifier on the top of their modifier stack. IMPORTANT - for Editable Mesh and Spline objects setting the edge length is undoable.

Hidden Polys Manager extends the built-in hide/unhide polygons functionality of 3ds Max. It allows you to hide or unhide certain part of the object.

 

miauu's Corner Align allows you to create corners by connecting vertices or edges with few very easy steps.

Hi!

You are the first one that tells me that the videos not explains how the script works. You can contact me at [email protected] and I can explain you how each script works.

About the Orbit Viewport Around Picked Point: Orbit Viewport around picked point not works as a button in the toolbar. This is explained in the video. Assign a hotkey to the macro, hover the mouse cursor over a mesh object(lets call it objA) in the scene and press the hotkey. Then you will be able to rotate the viewport around the point that is located on the surface of objA and was below the mouse cursor when the hotkey was pressed. If you use the Orbit Viewport Around Picked Point with a button in any toolbar nothing will happens, because there is no mesh object below the cursor.

miauu's Script Pack vol.1 version 3.4 is available

miauu's Script Pack vol.1 is updated to version 3.4

Changelog:
New Scripts:
- Align WP to OP - alligns the Working Pivot to the pivot of the selected object.
- Aliogn OP to WP - alligns the pivot of the selected object to the Working Pivot
- Turn Off WP - will turn off the Working Pivot. It is recomended o use it when the Working Pivot was activated by the Visual Pivot Placer.

- Visual Pivot Placer is updated.
-- added Align to Sub-Object. When 1, 2, 3 verts, edges, faces are selected the pivot of the object will be aligned as follows:

- 1 vert is selected - to the verts normal
- 2 verts are selected - the position of the pivot will match the middle point between selected verts. The X axis will match the direction betwen selected verts.
- Three verts are selected - the position of the pivot will match the middle point between selected verts. The X axis will match the direction betwen the most farthest verts.The Z axis will be perpendicular to the plane that the selected verts forms.

- 1 edge is selected - the position of the pivot will match the edge center. The Z axis will match the normal of the edge, X axis will match the direction of the edge.
- 2 edges are selected - the position of the pivot will match with the midpoint of the two centers of the edges. The Z axis will match the normal of the plane that selected edges forms. The X axis will match the vector of the longest edge.

- 1 polygons is selected - the position of the pivot will match with the centers of the selected polygon. The X axis match the vector of the longest edge. The Z axis will be perpendicular to the selected polygon
- 2 polygons are selected - the position of the pivot will be aligned to the center selected polygons.
