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!

v 2.7.07 Added "Edit Bitmap Gamma" to Materials right click menu to edit the gamma values on bitmap texture maps

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

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.
