Instance Tool

40 votes

Instance tool analyze the geometry objects in the scene and finds groups of objects that could be represented as instances of one of them. Then the user can turn every group into actual instances and choose which object from the group will be preserved. The objects in the group are objects that have the same topology (could be morph targets of one another) and the difference between them could be described with transformation alone.

A simple script, same like archive, but save all asset in one flat folder without zip.

checked "update asset path" will change all path to selected folder(easy for distribute render).

checked "strip all path" will strip all the path, easy to share scene with other without showing your folder structure.

 

 v0.6 - add save selected object feature and option to save max file.

A very simple but EXTREMLY USEFUL script you will use all the time!

With just one click it opens the Slate Material Editor and displays all the materials for the selected objects well organized in a clean view.

Forget about the annoying material picker tool. Add this simple button to your toolbar and every time you want to see the material/s for your current selected object/s just click the button and... Voila!

It will save you a lot of time!

csWorkPlane

This is a collection of macro script relate to construction plane. It started as an implementation of Modo’s work plane. It includes the following four scripts.

autoAutogrid
It allow you create a grid object. After the grid is made, the grid will be automatically activated, and all transform coordinates will be set to Grid.
The core functionality of this script has been in 3ds Max for long time. AutoGrid, Grid object, Grid coordinate. I just make more streamlined workflow.
If you want to go back to the default coordinate, Run this script again while pressing SHIFT.
