New Re-topology tool: Wrapit

Hello all, I'd thought I'd take this opportunity to demonstrate a new tool I've been developing for 3dsmax 2008 and above.

Wrapit is essentially a tool for conforming meshes to other meshes.
This lends itself to various scenarios such as retopoligising high-res
meshes like those created in Zbrush, mudbox etc and creating low poly
proxies for situations where those are preferable, like collision
detection etc.

Obviously there are other solutions for retopoligising, although I've
never really enjoyed that process in Zbrush, and learning new tools can

squash stretch biped rig

attached script lets you quickly setup squash stretch with your biped rig. may be useful for lazy ppl like me who don't prefer custom rigs too much and too much used to for biped animations.

Project Switcher

Just uploaded a new script for quickly switching back and forth between different projects folders. They were new in 3dsmax and allow for relative path names (so you can quickly move an entire project to some other folder). Unfortunately, there is no history about previously used folders, and I my projects are deeply nested on the network so I wrote that script to be able to switch between the projects without browsing the entire network structure.

Update:
There seems to be a small bug in 3ds Max 2008. It causes projectSwitcher to always show a
Browse-Folder-Dialog when swichting projects. This can be fixed by manually editing the file Macro_SetProjectFolder.mcr in the <3dsmax_root>\ui\macroscripts directory and changing

local _SetProjectFolder_macro_option_promptUser
local _SetProjectFolder_macro_option_newFolder

in line 25 and 26 to

global _SetProjectFolder_macro_option_promptUser
global _SetProjectFolder_macro_option_newFolder

Save the .mcr file and restart 3ds Max. This should return normal functionality for projectSwitcher

 

Please help to fix

Anybody have any idea????

List of changes

I'll fill this out in the coming days as the update goes live

- Embedded Media Field for adding links to video tutorials / examples. There are many instances where showing usage via a youtube clip would really help out. There is now a field when submitting scripts, plugins & tutorials that lets you paste in the link to a video (any type) and it'll create a player window for that video.

dimensioning

is there a scripted tool for dimensioning the objects created (like dimensioning in autocad software)

Hi

I am happy to provide you the script FilePathFinder.
FilePathFinder helps you with operations related to external files
(eg. textures.IES files, pointcache files, Vray Proxies, MentalRay Proxies) in your scene.
It allows you to collect, sort, rename, relink your external files and search for missing assets.

Full supported for Vray, MentalRay, GroundWiz, VrayScatter and many-many other.
See list tested plugins and objects.

10 year anniversary coming up and some changes too...

10 years. Wow. The ScriptSpot 10 year anniversary will be coming up in May 2010. More news to follow.

manipulators in moveable window?

Hi.Does anyone know of a way to take existing 3d max slider manipulators and stick them inside of a separate window that I can then move around? This way they are not cluttering up my view ports. I run 2 monitors, so it would be nice to have the manipulators off to side in the other monitor. Thanks -T

New here!

Just created my account, let's see if I can understand scripting!
