Tool to create branching geometry from a series of splines.

The Download URL is for the free version.
Follow the Homepage URL for the full version.

Additional Info: 

SETUP:
To install, simply extract SplineBrancher.zip into your 3DS Max directory.

After opening Max, select MAXScript from the top menu, and click "Run Script..."
Navigate to the KM folder in the Scripts directory. Select the file called "splineBrancher.mse" and click "Open".

HOW TO USE:
1) Create a series of linked splines approximating the shape of the branches.
2) Set the starting radius for the initial branch.
3) Click "Add a spline" and select the initial branch. Repeat for all additional branches.

What do I get with the full version?
