DeformByProjecting Utility

4 votes

DeformByProjecting is a scripted utility for 3dsmax that allows deform one or more objects by projecting mesh verticies on the surface of another object (preform). The basic idea is similar to Conform (Compound Object), but functionality DeformByProjecting utility has differences and features:

Select spline afrer connect knots.
Выделяется сплайн после коннекта вершин.

Fixed bug connect knots of splines. If Command Panel will pulled from 3dsmax, tool will continue work withuot bugs.
Исправлена ошибка соединения узлов сплайнов. Если Коммандная панель будет вытащена из макса, инструмент продолжит работать без ошибок.

All this works by single hotkey.

Edge Loop Regularizer EditPoly

7 votes

Edge loop regularizer for Edit Poly. This script is an extended version of the well known edge loop regularizer script. This version has a ported part of the original script that can handle edit poly objects. The only drawback is that it can be slower when you are planning to use it on an edit poly object, because how max is handling edit poly modifiers. If you are planning to use it on an edit poly modifier, it might better to detach the part you want to regularize, and than attach it back when you finished the modification.

Weld Autosmooth

0 votes

Overall functionality and advantages

  • The script welds separated vertices and later autosmooths the faces if it's needed
  • It is very useful when you have imported the file that was generated in other software and the vertices are somehow separated
  • You can use these two actions (welding and autosmoothing) together or separately
  • Saves time when you have a lot of objects that need welding and later autosmoothing
  • The script can work on entire scene or just the selection

Spline FFD

18 votes

Spline FFD is a tool that allows you to move multiple vertices at once, moving the points of a spline.

New 1.1: Added mode that preserves the original distance between vertex.

With Spline FFD you can select a number of points on a mesh and creates a spline that passes through these points. By moving the points of the spline, the original mesh vertices move properly.

Bevel Switcher

0 votes

This is a quick and simple script that lets you set the bevel type with a hotkey so you no longer need to open up the bevel settings dialog. Works with any Editable Poly object or with any Edit Poly modifier.

Install the macroscript and you'll find it listed under the Burke Studios category. Assign this macroscript to a hot key so that you can access it quickly. The script uses a timer to determine which bevel mode to enable:

1. Hit the hot key ONCE and the bevel type will be set to -Local Normal
2. Hit the hot key TWICE quickly and the bevel type will be set to -By Polygon

Vertex to shape

21 votes

This is a script I did for a co-worker. It takes a vertex selection and turns that into a shape. It is the same as taking an edge loop and converting it to a shape but with less button clicks. Actually that is how it is scripted as well. It takes a vertex selection and converts it to a edge selection and then shrinks it to get the right edge loop. Then it just converts the edge to a shape. Pretty simple but it might help your work flow if you need something like this often enough.
