Instance Tool

48 votes

Instance tool analyze the geometry objects in the scene and finds groups of objects that could be represented as instances of one of them. Then the user can turn every group into actual instances and choose which object from the group will be preserved. The objects in the group are objects that have the same topology (could be morph targets of one another) and the difference between them could be described with transformation alone.

Instant Proxy Meshes for Scene Optimization

 

Description

Automatically create multiple proxy objects that replace your high-poly meshes to speed up your work on heavy scenes.

One-click Mass Booleans

3 votes

poster

Must-have plug-in for fast modeling! Now with ProBoolean.

Fast 1-click boolean operations with multiple objects:
-Union selected objects.
-Subtract selected objects from the first selected object.
-Subtract the last selected object from the other selected objects.
-[ProBoolean] Union selected objects.
-[ProBoolean] Subtract selected objects from the first selected object.
-[ProBoolean] Subtract the last selected object from the other selected objects.

VrayProxy Switcher

35 votes

Select a bunch of objects and put unique nodes to a specified directory as separate max files with the related vrayproxy data saved next to it.
Istance copies will be replaced with the new vrayproxy object.
Get previously saved objects back to max whenever you wish.

Arch Primitive

4 votes

Want to make Arches in Max for games? Here's a new fast primitive for making arches for BSP games (this can export as world geometry in the Source Engine).

Attach by Same Material

1 vote

Attached all geometry with the same material to the currently selected object. This collapses to editable poly first, so make sure you're cool with that before you click. :)

Created for merging objects in heavy architecture scenes recieved in Max format with large numbers of individual objects.

Find Coinstances

25 votes

Find CoInstances works in two ways:

1. With Multiple Objects selected it will find objects that are cloned on top of each other resulting in animation flickering

2. With a Single object selected it will find and select faces that are coinstanced

SnapSwap

2 votes

A tool for replacing the currently selected geometry with a same named snapshot (old model is deleted). Can be used for dealing with corrupt geometry.

To use: Run the macroscript, and add SnapSwap to a toolbar from the category "# SP_MeshScripts".

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 ;-)
