SCRIPTS IN PACK:

RotateClockWise,
RotateCounterClockWise,
RotateAround
- 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.

To whose who uses

To whose who uses 3PointRotation in 3ds max versions 9 - 2009:

In recent versions of 3ds max there is a bug in pickpoint maxscript function. So, to get correct results with 3dpointrotation script don't drag mouse while picking points. In other words when you pick the point in the viewport, mouse must not move between the moment you press left mouse button on the point and until you release the button. Otherwise picking becomes dragging and maxscript couldn't recognize point coordinates and script won't behave correctly.

Hope this helps you a little.
