CAD cleaner

2 votes

--WHAT THE SCRIPT DO --
When you import CAD file into 3d studio max it usually contains some "extra" data and the so called body objects. Also it contains some hierarchy and you cannot group objects.
The Script converts all this "extra" data to native 3ds studio max objects (typicaly lowering the polygon count almost twice:), but retains the instancing from the original CAD file.

This lets you group and manage your scene as typical max scene and stil use the istanced objects to quickly apply changes.

SubMaterial Picker

2 votes

Hi All,

That's a small tool that allows you to pick a sub material from viewport instead of the multimaterial. It automatically loads the material in SME or CME (depending on what you have open). Holding "Shift", will act similar to default picker and it will load the source material.

This tool request came from Krešimir Jelušić on the Facebook group Stack (for more visit the link below). Dave Wortley (aka fb.me/MaxMadeEasy) also contributed with ideas and code. There is still some room from improvement but I'm not sure if I will have the time.
