Various tools for use with the Skin modifier.

Additional Info: 

Skin Paint Mode On/Off:
This is a Macro Script found in the PEN Tools category for turning the Paint Weights tool on and off.

Skin Paint Blend Mode On/Off:
There is a hidden feature in Skin that is a blend or a blur paint mode that allows for the weights of verts to the blended. This makes it easier to soften areas or correct uneven weighting.
This is also a Macro Script found in the PEN Tools category.

Set Paint Weight to 0.02:
Macro Script that sets the paint weight to 0.02. This is a number that is hard to get to using the Alt+Shift feature that I often use.

Update Painter on Mouse Up:
Toggles the paint mode to update only when the paint is finished. This is great when working with very large meshes that make the paint mode slow.

Installation:
Unzip and place the PEN_SkinTools.ms file in the STRpluginsSTRscripts folder and PEN_SkinTools.mcr in the UIMacroScripts folder and restart Max. All scripts will be found in the PEN Tools category in the Customize/Customize User Interface dialog. Add the tools in your favorit quad menu or set hot keys for them.
