Move To Surface

22 votes

The following will let the user move objects along their Z axis to fit a specified surface. Such a script can be used to automatically plant trees, poles etc. on the ground.

This script is straight out of the 3ds Max MAXScript reference file. Its part of the MAXScript 'How To' lessons that teaches how to use MAXScript with practical problems. Load your MAXScript reference (the one that ships with 3ds Max) and do a search for 'align surface' and it'll be the first result.

I did not write this script I merely copied the code here as aligning to a surface is a very common request. Make sure to read the other 'How To' tutorials in the 3ds Max MAXScript reference - they're all really good!

Nested Layer Manager 2 For 3ds Max

43 votes

Nested Layer Manager 2 provides the ability to nest layers in 3ds Max. This script is small, fast and allows layers to be nested in an unlimited number of folders. It has complete 2 way communication with the default layer manager; If anything is altered in either, both layer managers are updated. This allows people without this script installed to still see the normal layer organisation present in the file.

Nested Layer Manager has a free 30 day trial.
