Snap Verts

2 votes

Snaps selected vertices to the closest vertices of the target object.
Works on Editable_Poly and Edit_Poly, at any level in any modifier stack.
Also works inside the same mesh (if you pick the same object as target object)

This is based on this script: http://visionlore.com/lab/snapverttovert.php

Edge Loop Regularizer EditPoly

10 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.

v3.9: Fixed bug of Connect ring edges. Исправлен коннекта ring-рёбер

All this works by single hotkey.

DeformByProjecting Utility

7 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:

v2.1 Added tool which works by selected axis transform/ Добавлен инструмент, который работает по выбранной оси трансформации.

Spline FFD

19 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.

PolyModOp

3 votes

Say goodbye to scripts that only work with Editable Poly and not Edit Poly modifier. PolyModOp is a MAXScript struct wrapping the Edit Poly methods using the familiar signatures of the polyop methods. That means you check once at the beginning what kind of object you are dealing with, pick either polyop or polymodop, and the rest of the code will be the same as if you were writing it for Editable Poly.

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.

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
