Select spline segments by matID

0 votes

With this script you can select splines' segments by matID.
There are two methods of selection:
- "Use IDs of selected segments" - select some segments and press the [Select] button. The script will find the matIDs of the selected segments and will select all other segments with the same matIDs.
- "Use IDs typed below" - type as many matIDs as you want in the field(separate matIDs with comma) and press the [Select] button. The script will select all segments with the matIDs entered by you.

PolyDetail is a 3dsMax plugin that helps you to quickly draw nice ornamnets with a mouse brush.

Ornaments are one of the most time consuming things in 3d modelling. With PolyDetail you can create a large variety of ornaments in a few minutes.

Product geometry is in polygonal format so you can easily adjust it with standart modelling tools.

With 12 default ornament brushes you can easily create cool looking ornaments or if you want you can add your own custom brushes for a large variety.
Rotation and twist settings helps you achieve interesting details with minimal effort.

Profile shape

9 votes

Profile spline primitive to be used with classic Bevel Profile or Shell modifier as the edge profile shape, as a sweep profile and for other similar use cases. Can be rotated, flipped and reversed as needed (for example for Shell, you should use the X Direction).

Arrow

15 votes

Arrow spline primitive, useful as a control object in rigging. Works only in 3ds max 2016 SP2 and higher.

Pulley Belt

9 votes

Technically you can probably call it a rounded isosceles trapezoid but it will be more useful as a base for path of bicycle chains or pulley belts. When both radii are the same and spline set to renderable, it could also be used as a simple chain link.

Guilloche

Procedural guilloché pattern.

Simple Catenary

6 votes

Simple two-point spline (i.e. just the starting point and the end point and two bezier handles)  approximately in the shape of catenary curve (the shape formed by a hanging rope).

Helix with Bezier Handles

14 votes

Just like the regular helix only with four bezier handles per turn (or more if you would like - you can control that with the Steps spinner) instead of 40 corner-points of the default Helix shape.
