- three scripts for easy, one-click rotating objects on 90, -90 and 180 degree around active axis and in current coordinate system. Scripts also rotate UVW Mapping gizmo and Slice sub-object.
- to rotate a copy of the object - press shift+script button on the toolbar

3PointScale - script for scaling separate objects by specifing 3 points. Like AutoCAD's 'scale by reference' command. Uniform scaling supported.

!take care of proper snap mode - for example, when scaling in top viewport for correct result 2.5d snap must be chosen
!take care of proper reference coordinate system mode - script only supports world, scene node and local system

3PointRotation - script for rotating objects and groups by specifing 3 points.
Like AutoCAD's 'rotate by reference' command
Angle spinner added- now you can set the custom angle while rotating about chosen point

!take care of proper snap mode - for example, when rotating in top viewport for correct result 2.5d snap must be chosen

TapeCoordSys - this tool helps you to create tape object and then select it for coordinate system object in one step. It turns on 3d snap mode automaticly and returns to old snap mode after exit.

 BuildingMaker - Script for creating simple building models from splines

StripesTexture - Script for creating random or regular stripe texture

TransformationJitter - Apply random transformations to selected objects

WhiteVPBackground - Toggle change viewport background color to white or to the default (125,125,125) to change default VP color to your settings, edit the script.
Very handy for printing viewport screenshots.

Icons solution

I have a solution for the icons on 3ds Max 2013/14.
Copy and Rename the folder "Icons" to "IconsDark" and replace on "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2013\UI_ln"

Actually, I have updated

Actually, I have updated version of the script that works without any copying and stuff. But it does not have any icons (I hate to support icons along the script versions, sorry). Will update this page asap.

Script paths are different places

Sergo scripts paths are diferrent in Max 2013 and 2014.
You can copy folders seperately.

This is the issue;

Script Folders ---> Max folders
Sergoscripts > Scripts ---> Max 2014 > Scripts
Sergoscripts > UI > Icons ---> Max 2014 > UI_ln > Icons
Sergoscripts > UI > Macroscripts ---> Max 2014 > Macroscripts

That's all.
Sorry for my bad english.
Hope that helps.

tape coord system with sub-object

Hey Sergo, how´s going?
i use a lot the UseTapeCoordSys script, but i want to ask you if is possible to make it work with sub-objects. I mean, it does work, the thing is that, when you switch to sub-object mode, the current coord sys goes back to the last used, not using the tape. Can you adjust that??
thanks man,
