Populate:Terrain assists in creating and optimizing terrain surfaces from contour lines or from existing meshes. The quad based output allows for easier later remodeling, for example using push/pull painting. The regular face size reduces rendering issues (GI, displacement) and you can use Turbosmooth on it.

Populate:Terrain is a scripted plugin for Autodesk 3ds max. It assists in creating and optimizing terrain surfaces for architectural visualization applications. Populate:Terrain fixes imported meshed CAD models or directly converts contour lines. The result is a clean quad based poly surface with user definable grid size.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fveb2k65ajal0um/AACorZACSZ6Alh057hUbN-7Fa?dl=0

This link will stay up as long as dropbox allows and as long as people dont abuse it :D

it is for the 1.86 version i found in an old downloads folder while cleaning up, take it for what its worth, i don't know if it works with current versions of max, last i used it was in max 2016.

download and install at your own risk, i cannot be blamed if this breaks your max install :)
