Find identical geometry and instance it

34 votes

Everybody who have imported large amount of data from any cad system know that it normally kills the instancing. The intention of this script is to find geometrically identical nodes and instance them. This script will of course work if someone have used copy instead of instance in a scene and wants them instanced instead.

I'm happy to see that so many have tried out my Sunday hack that I made 5 years ago...but as it was only something to do for a Sunday its not really something I support. I would love to, but my daytime job takes all my time ;-)

Boujou2max imports raw markers from Boujou as an animated cubes or dummies. This is a good solution for raw motion tracking without camera solve.

Place Objects according to normal

3 votes

This script will place objects according to the normal of the face you place them on.
You can add multiple objects in a list and let the script random pick one of those, or disable the random button and choose yourself.

Script features:

- Add multiple objects to a list and start placing them.
- Place them with the first click, then move your mouse to rotate the object and click again to confirm.
- Cancel placement at any time.
- Random select objects from the list.
- Add a Z-Offset to the objects.
- Place objects according to the normal they are placed on.

DeltaMushToSkin

DeltaMush to Skin is a c++ 3ds Max modifier which smooths deformations while preserving details with "converting" to Skin feature - the plugin solves Skin weights matched as close as possible to the DeltaMush result. It enables the user to export such rigg to the game engine like Unity, Unreal etc. The whole process is incredibly fast thanks to multithreaded optimization.

WeightPro is a 3ds Max plugin for automatic, fast and smooth Skin modifier weighting, no matter if the mesh has good or messy topology. It voxelizes the mesh with the skeleton using GPU to calculate the shortest distances between bones and vertices.
It allows you to make adjustments during posing in realtime.

Available for 3ds Max versions: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.


Modifier Auto-Select

50 votes

This is a tool I put together because sometimes you have to work with modifiers on multiple nodes and the modifiers aren't at the very top of the stack. You’re constantly having to select the node and then selecting the proper modifier. Prime example of this is when you have a turbosmooths on top of all of your geometry while you are either skinning or modelling. It would be much easier, and save quite a bit of time, if every time you selected a node you just automatically were on the skin modifier or edit poly modifier.

Auto mesh Skinning

13 votes


This script is for fast and accurate mesh skinning, but it won't generate skin for production ready. There will by always something to correct weights.

It's very simple all You have to do to set slice boxes. Just watch video and everything should be clear.

In version 0.6 there is simple automatic mirroring made. The rigg should be set in x=0 position.

All comments and suggestions are welcome.

------------ version 0.7 -----------

- Script didn't work with bones which had space in names - Not any more :]
