Flatten_Spline_XYZ

24 votes

This script comes in 6 macros - rolled into 2 script files. The script flattens splines to an X - Y or Z snap point. You select the spline - select the verts you want affected and then use the command. The script creates 6 commands - Flatten_Spline_X - Flatten_Spline_Y... Fatten_B_Spline_X and so on. The non B version moves the verts to the proper location but will not adjust Bezier Handles.

v 2.8.03 Fixed Save preset bug (for plugins like ky_trails)

v 2.8.02 Fixed ini file bug stopping wondow for opening a 2nd time

v 2.8.00 Added Exclude text field for filtering by name. Editing Refrence targets Tab now working!!! This means you can mass edit FumeFX object settings such as speed multipliers and other FumeFX and TP properties that were previously impossible to edit!

Edit ALL modifiers, ALL objects, ALL Materials, All Controllers, ALL Shadow types and ALL atmospherics/Render Effects. Work in max from a "Class-centric" way rather than a per object way. Edit thousands of object's perameters, randomize thousands of seeds, enable thousands of modifiers and more with a few clicks!

General Features (applies to all modifiers, controllers, materails, shadows, atmos and render effects):

MASS EDIT: Mass edit one property on all nodes at once, You can specify an absolute value, a relative value or apply an absolute value to modify

MASS RANDOMIZE: Randomize one property on all nodes at once

SELECT/DELETE BY CLASS: Select all objects with a meshsmooth, or all spheres or all objects with a path constraint etc

FULL INSTANCE/REFRENCE TOOLS: Make all objects/modifiers of a class or selection instances. Make Base object refrences. replace base objects with another obj (eg make all selected boxes an instance of a vrax proxie.) Available for Modifiers and Base objects only ATM.

LOAD/SAVE PRESETS: Load and save presets in xml format for modifiers, objects, etc.

Specific Features (Can be done to All or selected):

Modifiers: Enable, Disable, Enable in viewport, Disable in viewport.

PointCache Modifiers: Set ranges, Set path, Flush path, Reload, Record.

FumeFX: Simulate, Load settings

Lights: Turn all, selected, selected classes on or off. Multiply all light vlaues.

Xref Object: Merge object

Materials: Show/Hide In Viewport:  Shows the material in the viewport. Doesnt work with texture maps yet.

Bitmap Gamma: Mass edit the bitmap load gamma settings. Choose auto or an overide value. Max 2014+

Spring Controller: Modifyspring controller settings (Needis its own section as springs are controlled differently with maxscript.

Merge Xref Controller:  Merges All/Selected controllers

Slice Tool

This script slices an object at regular intervals along the world axes.
Useful for quickly subdividing a complex mesh homogeneously, for vertex painting or to apply a bend modifiier to it for example.

or in the comment section down here ;)

Update 2017/06/14: Added the distance feature.

Update 2017/06/15: The script is now running way faster.

Select By Diffuse

A script that selects all objects in the scene based on their diffuse color. This is most helpful for imported PDB files in which all the elements have unique materials, but share a diffuse.

Color can be chosen from object or by color picker.

DesignToolBox - for architecture & design

4 votes

Design Toolbox is a collection of tools designed to accelerate and simplify basic modeling tasks of  architectural, urban or interior scenes tools: Standard transformations by reference, like the ones usually found in more precise work oriented applications; Fast measurements, speed up positioning of reference coordinates and workplanes. It also includes some other useful tools for quickly apply and manipulate uvw maps, for paneling simple surfaces; plus some others useful time saver tools.

DesignToolBox is packed with our previous tool, refGuides:

refGuides plug-in is intended to improve and speed up architecture modeling, or any case where precise measurements are needed. It allows to create construction guides, for accurately position and model objects. This guides can act as rulers, displaying custom measurement units in the viewport. Another feature is the ability to place **intersection marks** where linear guides intersects in space.

Bitmap Tracking / Resizing ....

23 votes

New - Demo version - v1.65
New  -  ++ All Assets ++
New - Custom Resize / Convert dialog
New - Faster multitreated Auto-Relink
New - Favorive folder list for Auto-Relink dialog (just drag and drop)
New - MyLocations - super fast check for file status - skips unknown network paths
New - support for FStorm Bitmaps - sort by size / resizie
.

Bitmap Tracking / Resizing... is tool similar to Asset Tracking. But it gives more possibility to work with bitmaps:

- Support for All Assets now
- Sort files by name, image width, height, file size, path, gamma, texture name, status (Found - network, Found -  local, Not found)
- Resize selected bitmaps to 2k, 1k, 512, 256, 128, 64px and save in new folder (not available in demo)
    - easy batch resize and reconect selected bitmaps (by size) before sending to external renderfarm,
    - resize bitmaps in large animation sceens to reduce memory ussage,
- Convert... see below
- Change / Rename paths (with paths history and rename path prefix eg. change only server/drive letter)
      * Choose from path from history (already used paths in curent project)
      * Pick new path
      * Batch rename paths beginng ( drive letter or paths C:\sample\abc\ and rename them to Z:\3d\sample\abc\ )
- Multi-threaded Auto-Relink
- And More...
