[ 3dsMax <> UVLayout ] UVPipe mod by miauu

10 votes

This script will allow you to send the selected objects to UVLayout and get them back.

This is useful when you wants to have more than one object in the same UV square.

All editable poly objects from the selection(selected objects or groups) will be sent to UVlayout.

Fast Housing

6 votes

Fast Housing generates an architectural structure through a custom procedural mesh object, you can change parameters and watch the results in real time. It's an easy and intuitive way to create a house at a simple level, its versatility allows you to create your own style, usefull for the creation of urban backgrounds.

This script creates a FA_House primitive object which works as any 3ds Max object: any deformer can be applied, renderable, can be converted to mesh etc ...

Show Textures in viewport (one click!)

2 votes

A simple check button to place on your toolbar, to show or hide the textures for all materials in scene.

It supports almost any kind of material or render engine.

The script was written in a way that depends as minimum as possible on render engine, so it should support a wide range of engines and materials. But it's not infallible.

Delete static keys - cleanup tracks/fcurves - HeckTools

3 votes

Hi All

This is intended to help cleanup your track view/graph editor for animating.

script removes all static keyframes excluding the initial key. essentially this acts similarly to the Maya feature "delete all static channels".

Also, it goes through and cleans up the tracks that have extra static keys that are in between your other animation keys leaving the animation in tact, but yielding a cleaner view of the chaos spaghetti.

leave feedback if you try the tool.

3DS Max File Version - 2013 update!

3 votes

This VB-compiled tool serves just to test which version of Max was used to create the saved Max file. Since 3DSMax doesn't do a good job at writing its version in the file's properties - I use this tool to find out what version it was created in so I can go back to the proper 3DSMax to edit the file.

If you have multiple versions of Max installed and want to know what version you used on an old project - use this tool to find out.

Max 2 Unity

1 vote

Max 2 Unity is a script I made to improve my workflow when creating game assets for Unity.
It allows me to quickly iterate on assets and easily change them without losing any Unity scene data.
Select the folder in your Unity project in which you want to put your meshes ( Ex : _Meshes )
and press export.
It will export FBX models according to the settings you've set, and when going back into Unity, Unity itself will reimport the meshes and apply the corresponding changes.

Max2Unity also correct the model orientation for unity import.
