This script is very useful for car exterior modelling. It allows you to create really smooth polygonal surface using splines or NURBS curves to control the shape of the surface. Also allows you to control the edge loops of the surface. With this script you have to draw only the borders of the surface you want. Watch the video or the help page for more information!

This is a commercial script. Buy it for $30 or download and try the trial version.

Maybe splines have some problem

It usually happens when the splines have some problems. E.g. duplicated vertices, or edges. You have to clean your splines. If you send me the splines in a .max file, i will check it, and correct it for you.
Send it to [email protected] or via skype (skype name: heavenlypictures) or attach it to here in a comment.

I have a problem. Script

I have a problem. Script creates messy meshes. Script worked fine till now. And it works fine in a new scene. Maybe do I need to delete some cache files somewhere?

Links & Registration not Working

I fixed the links, now you can download the script from here, and you can go to my page. I don't know what is the form of your e-mail address, so I don't know what is the problem with it. Nobody reported this yet. But I changed some things in the e-mail checker method, I hope it works for you now. Anyway, you don't have to register to try the script, just install it, and press the "start trial" button after running the script. If you or anybody have problems please contact me.

Links & Registration not Working

The links to the site and download not working - seems to have moved.
I went to the site and downloaded the software - worked fine.
Tried to register in order to use the software, but it kept telling me that my email address was not the 'correct form.' Totally hopeless so don't bother unless you have the magic form required to register. This guy needs to get his act together is he's going to be selling plugins.

great script! it would be

Well, with maxscript it's a little bit hard, but it's easy with max plugin. So I want to turn this script into plugin. But I have to learn max SDK. Need a few month, but I think I can do it.

great script!

it would be really nice, if you could RIG the mesh to the spline, so changing splline, changes mesh in realtime

is this possible?

cheers
