3DS Max - Create A Custom Construction Plane

0 votes

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.

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!

Change Listener Color Scheme

5 votes

Hi there..

The script is for 3ds max 2020.1 and higher versions of 3ds max. It can change listener's colors save them in .xml format for share or future usage. For now I could not find an .ini file to write those settings in so there is a save startup script button on the bottom of the dialog.

MCG support added!

6 votes

Calling all MCG developers! ScriptSpot now features an MCG section where you can share & find procedural MCG tools. This is an incredibly exciting feature of 3ds Max 2016 and I'm excited to see all the tools you're able to create!

The new section is a clean slate so there isn't any content until you add it! Since MCG files are inherently visual I'd like to see more images / video examples of what people can expect when using them.

 Installation: Scripting, Install Max Creation Graph...

Max2017 should work straightaway, for max2016 ensure you have SP3 properly applied then Extension2 (maybe 1 would work too...can't be sure)

FFS...Floor Flux Sake !!! I empower you to take the Red pill or Blue pill....go into the graph and choose your destiny on the far right...Fastest compile time could be a second (Blue pills) or slowest (Red pills), with all functionalities, up to 15 secs !!! But once you've compiled the graph, it should be pretty quick.

incrementalSave

57 votes

This macroscript is a replacement for the save function. It saves incremental file versions while keeping the name of the latest - most-up-to-date version always the same as the original file. This is good for XRef'ing because the filename does not change. Just add it to your File menu and/or define Ctrl+S as shortcut.
New: Old file versions will now be saved to a subdirectory
v0.61 update: Bug fix to handle non-standard number prefixes; small improvements to the UI and error messages
