Override -Selection Mode- & -Convert Selection- in EditablePoly/UnwrapUVW

19 votes

This script override selection mode in EditablePoly/UnwrapUVW AND allow to Convert subobject selection to an another in EditablePoly and Unwrap

Hit 1 or 2/3/4/5 ==> go in vertex/edge/..() mode
Re-hit 1 or 2/3/4/5 ==> go in object mode and you can select another object!
I have added a line, with "Max modify mode", like this, if your are not in "modify panel" when you select an object and hit 1 to set vertex mode, the script go automatically in the panel "modify"

Install:
Go in Customize User Interface, Group "Main UI", Category "zOffTy Tools" and set
1 for epoly_vertex

Connect Always

14 votes

By default, Max has two separate commands for Connecting Edges and Connecting Vertices. You had to have two menus for both of them.With Connect Always, you just have to select the vertices/edges and hit "Connect Always"

Here is the code if you dont want to download:-

macroscript Connect_always
Category: "Butt tools" buttonText: "Connect Always"
(
$.EditablePoly.ConnectVertices ()
$.EditablePoly.ConnectEdges ()
)

The category and buttontext is needed if you want to put it in a menu or quad.

Select Every N-th-no UI

37 votes

If you want to select every 2nd or 3rd or 4th, etc edges, just select the first edge, skip the desired number of edges and select the second edge, then execute the script.

If you want to see the time that script needs to make a selection, just start MAXScript Listener.

Instalation: Drag 'n drop two mzp files in 3ds max, then go to Customize - Customize User Interface. Under "miauu" category you can find "Gap Loop" and "Gap Ring" scripts.

On the video below the script works 3 times slower, because of Camtasia and my old, single core PC.
