Python in 3D Studio Max, Maya and Blender - examples

1 vote

Hi

I've recently created 3 scripts that create (almost) the same scene in 3 different applications (Maya, Max and Blender). They are intended to serve as a source of code snippets for future projects and examples of how to do stuff in those applications - something like Blender's cookbook.

As the titles says this tutorial is about reading an external txt file. My friend asked me how to read and external text file using maxscript. He wanted to create a tool that grab system directory paths from an external predefined text file. Check the full tutorial here....

Rig / Animate tanks

1 vote

Hi everyone,

"Gearing" is a 3ds Max script, helpful by rigging and animating of tanks, excavators, dredges etc.
The new version supports automatic path following, acceleration / deceleration.
The script is commercial. I intend to add a demo to the new edition, however the 1 st version comes with a limited demo.
The next two tutorials introduce the script's basics.
If you take interest in this area you may watch them at:
1. (1 st version) http://youtu.be/LzhH0fY1Y0Q
2. (2 nd version) http://youtu.be/VPFjEXvReF4

Thanks for watching!

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.

Maxscript tutorial: Abbreviations

4 votes

Have ever wished for maxscript to have short cuts, So instead of writing a whole code like for loops ... or functions you just have to type (fordo) for example or (FN) and then press a Ctrl + Shift + A and it will throw you a full code that you pre defined, it's like magic and saves a lot of time. In this small tutorial we are gonna discuss how to do this using maxscript hidden technique (Abbreviations)

MaxScript 2012-2015 CHM Help

3 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:
