Version 4.2.8 - May 2017

PolyUnwrapper is a complete set of professional tools designed for the texture artists, especially for the architectural and game industries.

It contains plenty of features that will greatly help you improve your unwrapping workflow.

PolyUnwrapper

 

Main Features Features

  • Multi Stitch. Stitch Multiple Shells at once
  • Custom Packing algorithm and tools
  • Tool for matching the Shells Width and Height
  • Easy Grid Spacing
  • Render UV Tiles (UDIM)
  • Cycle Checker map
  • PolyUnwrapper Toolbar now keeps on top of the Unwrap Editor
  • Render Open Edges
Additional Info: 

The plugin does not overwrite any 3ds Max setting, nor does it save any information with your scene, so you can use it and then open the same scene in another machine where PolyUnwrapper is not installed.

Note: It only replaces the standard Unwrap Modifier toolbar in 3ds Max 2010 to 2011.

Version Requirement: 
3ds Max 2010 - 2018

Packing

Your packing algorithm is very convenient. I really need your command for pack shells. I have a lot of objects and select each new object, it is necessary to press the button on the package. If you are help me , I would be very grateful to you.

I am working on supporting Max 2017.

@Ateruber
The only PolyUnwarpper commands available for hotkeys are the ones listed in the Macroscript, as you already found.
