better bridge

A couple of people have noticed some limitations in the bridge command.
http://area.autodesk.com/forum/autodesk-3ds-max/autodesk-3ds-max--3ds-ma...

I put up a solution involving csPolyTools and a macro.

This macro is a little slow, but otherwise works great.
I can not code scripts my self, so if anyone feels like having a shot at creating a better bridge I would appreciate it.

good luck.

I've created a little macro

I've created a little macro with the help of the macrorecorder, nothing special. Just drag'n'drop the macro in the 3ds max viewport. You can find the macro under "Customize > Customize User Interface > Category: Editable Polygon Object > PolyBridge"

I have tested the macro, it should work with editpoly-objects as well as with editpoly-modifiers. Maybe you want to play around with it a bit. I don't know if it's what you're searching for, hope it helps :)

This is awesome! Almost what

This is awesome!
Almost what i was looking for.
It is much faster than my macro solution, but i see one little place where it could be improved.

It can not bridge two edges that share a vertex and form a V.

Thanks for the good effort.
