Delete UnRemovable Layer

0 votes

It may happen to you that you wanna remove an empty layer that you created before but delete option is grayed out in layer-manager and you no longer able to remove that layer. just remember that 3Ds Max never let you delete a layer while it contain some nodes nor default layer called “0”. but in some rare situations even an empty layer that you created and then you have done with it and want to delete it, but 3Ds Max not let you do that. It’s happen because of some unclassified nodes that came with your imported models from other programs, so you can’t see them in viewport and not in layer manager too. The only way to get rid of them is to select that Nodes from MaxScript and delete them manually so layer’s delete option will back again.

delete useless faces

Hi! Im not such a ninja in scripting, but I managed to make this! Thanks a lot to my friend Vadim who help me to fathom some things in max script!
1) This script remove useless polygons enshrouded by other geometry.
2) No unwanted geometry will be generated, just removing precisely mesh-interior faces of selected editable poly object.
3) It's hardcoded so pretty slow, sorry for that.
4) no multiple objects allowed yet
5) all opened parts will be preserved to avoid any bugs

This is a small script for completely removing all references to missing plugins from your 3ds Max scene.

Use with care (!) and do not save the results under the same file name!

The script will replace any missing plugin object with the first usable alternative object of the same class (e.g. a missing render effect will be replaced by the first available render effect). I cannot give any guarantees this will not mess up your data, your machine or your live.
