gizmoControl

gizmoControl UI screenshot
This macroscript (to be found in the "MB Tools" category after executing the .mcr) will allow you to link the transformation of a modifier gizmo to some other scene object. Afterwards, the gizmo will always be fully aligned to that other scene object, which can be freely animated by any kind of controller and linked to any other scene node. In some way this is very similar to World Space Modifiers but it works for any kind of modifier gizmo.

This tool can be very useful for creating complex modifier animations, for example animating a Slice modifier's plane along a path, attaching a UVW Map modfier to some animated helper object, transforming a Displace modifier with some other object, or having an extra node control the- symmety plane of a Symmetry modifier.

Inset by Smoothing Group

9 votes

As the mcg installation process was pretty convoluted, I decided to redo the InsetBySmoothingGroup modifier in maxscript - the speed is the same and you don't have to care about different versions of max behaving different, connecting disconnected nodes and all that stuff. Now it's just one .ms file, and there's no vertex weld needed either.

Align Slice Modifier Gizmo(Plane) to 3 points

3 votes

The script allows you to pick 3 points in the scene. The slice gizmo of the slice modifier of the selected object will be aligned to the picked points. When you run the script the SNAP will be automatically turned ON.

Bake vertex position from modifier stack

30 votes

I was wondering on how I could achieve a footstep-like effect on a mesh without some fancy softbody/physics/plugin-action, and I came up with this script. It basically bakes the vertex position from the modifierstack on each frame to a keyframed editable_poly object. It keyframes only the modified part of the mesh, and does not change it back, hence the "track-effect". See the example image:

Edge Selection from SmoothGroups

1 vote

Modifier that converts smoothing group borders to edge selection. If you want to display the result, put a Mesh Select modifier below this one and make its edge mode active.

Grow Vertex Selection

1 vote

Grow selection leveraging the Data Channel modifier. For more information, refer to the original discussion.

: DataChannel GrowVertSel

This is a self-contained modifier and is applied as such, it's not a Data Channel preset.

Create Holes

14 votes

Modifier for creating holes from selected vertices or polygons.

Available Lite version.

Advanced Sweep

6 votes

A curve-controlled scripted sweep modifier. As of now, both the Interpolation and Profile animation rollout UI items are just placeholders for non-implemented stuff. Using curve controls this way is pretty much experimental and as such, I wouldn't advise using this in production - better collapse it or make a pointcache and use that instead.

Delete Faces Modifier

2 votes

The DeleteFaces modifier allows you to delete faces on a mesh without having to add topology dependent modifiers like Poly Select.

V2 is now a compiled C++ plugin for Max 2015-2018.

Changelog:

Version 2.1

* Added support for Max 2018.

* Fixed some problems with Delete Faces.

* Fixed isolated vertices not being deleted.

* Added button in Custom Attribute to delete the rollout when it persists after the modifier list has been collapsed.

Version 2.0

* Adds new options for how to handle smoothing groups: match any, match all, match none.
