TurboSplines 3dsmax script - banner

Automate and simplify the creation, edition and animation of multiple path deformed meshes!



TurboSplines is a 3dsMax script for creating multiple spline wrapping animations (a.k.a. path deform animations) incredibly fast.

This tool automatically assigns Path Deform modifiers to preset or custom meshes and helps you quickly produce many spline-driven animations, which you can easily control from a friendly interface.

Make growing splines, animated cables, wires, ropes, ribbons, moving tentacles, branches, worms, etc.

TurboSplines uses 3dsMax standard modifiers and geometry, so you can edit your meshes and animations without needing the script. There's no plugin dependency.
