Select Hidden or Occluded Objects

Select only visible objects! Delete all objects hidden inside other objects!

If you are working with object heavy CAD models you probably know that often 90% of the objects are hidden internal components of the rig. Stuff you usually don't need or want. Object count that make 3dsMax crawl.

This script lets you either select what is visible or hidden from the current view - or let you scan the whole scene. 
It's a very efficient way to clean up your scenes with a high accuracy!

For people who work often with Objects ID, this script may make it easier. It allows you to see which objects have ID, to select objects by ID, assign a ID and all this without entering in properties of the objects.

Version: 2.34

  • Add "Assign ID by Layers" button
  • Add Option to Assign Wirecolor by ID

Scene Explorer Delete Extension

0 votes

This script allows deleting selected nodes and layers in the Scene Explorer. The default delete option of 3ds Max only deletes empty layers and nodes without childs. With this tool, deleting a selected parent node or layer implies deleting all its children hierarchy.

When you drag this script into the viewport of Max, it’s added to the “Barreira” category of the Customize User Interface panel. Then, you can create a button to execute the script easily.

Tree Maker

Great script for creating trees... Some of the 'sweet' things about this script are:
- After you generate the branches - you can rotate and move them about to more easily control the shape of the generated tree.
- The generated tree already has mapping coordinates applied (this isn't perfected yet - but it works pretty well).

The user can create buckyballs (geometric shapes of carbon atoms consisting of 12 pentagons and a varying amount and arrangement of hexagons) - other fullerenes - radiolarians - soccer balls (european footballs) - or any number of other interesting geometric shapes. Cancel out of the Chamfer floater to create other fun shapes with the vertexes and edges that get selected on the base geosphere.
