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.

Delete Modifier Utility

This small utility allows to delete any modifier in a selection. First, it captures the modifiers in the selection. The group of selected objects can be of different types (geometry, shape...). Then select which modifier you want to delete and click on "delete".

Modifier Auto-Select

47 votes

This is a tool I put together because sometimes you have to work with modifiers on multiple nodes and the modifiers aren't at the very top of the stack. You’re constantly having to select the node and then selecting the proper modifier. Prime example of this is when you have a turbosmooths on top of all of your geometry while you are either skinning or modelling. It would be much easier, and save quite a bit of time, if every time you selected a node you just automatically were on the skin modifier or edit poly modifier.

Multi Slicer Pro

18 votes

Multi Slicer Pro is a maxscript file that cuts your object with slicer modifier on any number of slicers, retaining at the same time the modifiers stack and providing you with an interface to control the parameters of the modifiers added to an object. As a result you have a setup that allows creating complex and unexpected animations of your object. Have free version.

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.

SnapVertsToGrid Modifier

2 votes

This is a simplemod plugin that will snap all the vertices of the object to the grid based on the grid snap spacing value.

Note that this modifier is the legacy version. If you have Max 2016+, you should use Brushify instead.

Sculpt Fixing

2 votes

Sculpt fixing is a tool for 3ds Max that lets you sculpt any object that uses a Point Cache modifier. The Point Cache modifier allows you to store modifier and sub-object animation to a disk file that records changes in vertex positions. If you are using an imported Point Cache modifier on a model to play back the animation and you need to sculpt it, Sculpt Fixing is an intuitive and easy-to-use tool that will save you time.

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:
