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.

Ultimate Painter

20 votes

Quick updates :
1 : Add a selection of objects in the list instead of having to pick them one by one.
2 : You can undo (Ctrl+Z) what you just have painted after exit the painting tool (right click or escape).

The result of two days of experiments around MouseTools.

You can use it to paint and distribute objects (copy or instances) on the grid or on surfaces. With Random controls, collisions detection, attachment surface...
You can paint all the max objects (geometries, helpers, proxies...)

Pflow to Splines

3 votes

This Script will generate animated Splines on PFlow Particle trails.

The Script is mostly self-explanatory. You just have to pick a Pflow source and press the "Generate Splines" button.
You can additionally choose to "fade" the Splines after x frames. This will help to vanish the splines when the particles are dead.

Super Render V3.0 is the utility for the people who need to
make really large ,1 frame renders. Is extremely usefull for
people who works in arquitecture and printed graphics in general. This script allows you to brake the render apart into fragments,
in such way that the RAM of the PC doesn´t limit the size of the
final image.

LSCMUnwrap

49 votes

lscm unwrap integrated for max5.1 and up

After seeing the max8 peltmapping vids - and doing a bit research on
the topic - I found that wings3d and blender already have nice
automatic unwrappers - using the same technique called LSCM. This
maxscript/plugin combo implements the technique based on blender3d. It
allows the user to mark edges as uv seams and run the automatic unwrap.
