## 3DS Max - Create A Custom Construction Plane

In this video, we will see how we can create our own construction plane,
close to the UCS thing in AutoCad. We will learn also how we can place a construction plane on top of a specific face so that this face's orientation will be the custom construction plane's orientation. In the end, will we learn how we can use this custom grid as a handy modeling aid in complex geometry. Also in this last section, we will deal with the problem when you try to use the Auto Grid on a Polygon that shares the same smoothing group with an adjacent face.

In this video, we will see how to show the hidden edges and make them permanently visible to be used in Editable Poly. Also, and quickly, we will learn how to use the Quadrify tool in Editable Poly to create quad faces out of Non-Quad faces. This tool doesn't have 100% success result all the time, it depends on the object's mesh, but it will try its best. In many cases, it's 100% successful.

## Maxscript 101 - Free Online Training

The creator of Maxscript (John Wainwright) has made his previously commercial training DVD available for free on Vimeo! It's broken up into easy to watch chunks and even though it's a bit dated it remains one of the best introductions to MAXScript available.

A sincere thanks from the ScriptSpot community to John Wainwright for releasing his incredibly valuable training series for free and to our very own "Garp" for putting in the time to get the video split into sections & uploaded. Thanks!

I have a shape with 2 splines: /sp1v1--sp1v2/ /sp2v1--sp2v2/.

Now i want to connect sp1v2 with sp2v1.
something like this:
