MaxScript 2012-2015 CHM Help

2 votes

After some time looking to get back the behavior of the MaxScript help previous to 2012, I couldn't find any information to do:

Press F1 to open the CHM Help file (not a combination of keys)
Open a single instance of the CHM file
Pass the selected word to the Index tab.

Finally with the help of a "lost" little utility, I got it working (mostly) as it used to be.

What do you need?

1. The CHM file
2. The little utility "KeyHH.exe"

You can download the CHM files from the following links:

Brick Wall Quick

4 votes

This is not a tutorial or script, just download the .max file.

Just trying out a brick wall with several scripts but sadly I have an old laptop so I thought why not try to make my own brick and then use the Clone Modifier (iToo) to clone it to two layers so that I could add more layers at a later date. It worked, I admit it's not brilliant but it might be useful to someone out there.

Made in 3D Max 2009

Added a Script made using Primitive Maker, it will be found under Wall and created a brick.
