Total Control of Spline Subobjects

 

Description

SubSpline is an Advanced Subobject Selector & Material IDs Editor for spline shapes in Autodesk 3dsMax.

Easily expose on screen the vertex numbers and material IDs for all your selected shapes, with a simple toggle button.

Take advantage of cutting-edge tools for spline subobject selection that complement and extend 3dsMax’s standard tools: shrink/grow selection, offset selection, dot selection, random selection, and more!

Accurately manage and control the material IDs assignment for your spline curves and their segments: quick buttons, predefined patterns, offset IDs, randomize IDs, etc. This is really helpful to control materials in spline modeling, hair plugins or procedural modeling plugins like RailClone (iToo Software).

SubSpline will greatly speed-up your workflow and save you a lot of time!

It’s an ideal tool for CG artists and professionals that usually work with vector curves in 3dsMax, e.g. for Architectural Visualization (Arch-Viz), Engineering, Industrial Design, 3D logo design and spline modeling in general.
