This is a script like autogrid. You can move, instance and copy objects all over the place! ShiftPress the button for options (move, instance, copy, lock rotation and lock scale)

How it works: select an object and press the button. click and drag (left-right = scale, top-down:rotation)

If you select multiple objects it will choose a random one.

Average / Copy Border vertex Normals

2 votes

By Marc Robert / Trebor777 ([email protected])

Tool to fix seams between 2 objects by averaging or copying the normals from one another's borders.

The user needs to select the same number of vertices on both mesh with an EditPoly modifier named "VertSelect". It's created automatically when the meshes are picked if they don't already have them.

The tool will compute the closest vertices from each other and uses those normals.

Overview:
A simple tool to render out top down maps from 3dsmax. An ideal way utilizing the tool would be in creating tilable textures. Besides tilable textures, this will help in overlaying additional small scale details on already made in-game meshes in a much more straight forward fashion.

How to Install

UI:

Conform selected objects to other objects's surface. The scripts works only with Collapsed Editable Poly objects from the selection. Other objects in selection are left intact.
Known issues
Sometimes when operating with surface objects with too many vertices some vertex may not be placed over the surface.
This tool is still in development phase so any feedback is quite welcome.

If you have high polygon file and low polygon file finished UV mapping process before,
this tool can  extract Normal, Diffuse, Ambient Occlusion, Lighting map in one single image within 3DS Max.
So you don't  need to use Photoshop to collaborate all these map images in a single image file.
Baking process will be easily done in a minuite by using this tool.
