I saw this thread and decide to make a script. :)

Then Syphorlate show a very elegant solution for quadratic extrusion and I add it to the script.

This is the final version of this script. Any future development of smart extrusion is in Syphorlate hands.

 

Work only with Editable Poly objects.

Important:

After each extrusion press the "Apply" or "OK" button to confirm the new mesh shape.

 

Installation: Drag and drop the mzp file in 3ds max.

Unzip the MZP file(using any archiver) and copy the PolyExtrudeIcons.png in maxRoot/UI/icons folder or in maxRoot/UI-in/icons folder. Then restart 3dsmax.

Go to Customize-Customize User Interface-"miauu" category.

 

Version Requirement: 
tested on max 2009 (should work in older versions too!)

Hey guys, I made another script doing real extrusion(not just scaling) with correct quadratic outlines. Check the comments of this thread.
