A CMD utility to externally re-path 3ds Max files

0 votes

This is a simple tool I wrote in IronPython and compiled to a usable .exe program for re-pathing or examining 3ds Max (.max and .mat) files without actually running 3ds Max.

It's pretty useful for batch re-pathing before rendering on render farms, for example. Or just to view what type of files are being linked in your .max and .mat scene files and material libraries, respectively.

CAD Cleaner

12 votes

A utility script to weld vertices and clean up smoothing in imported/converted CAD models. Works on Editable_Mesh objects in selection. Does not work on objects with an Edit_Mesh or Edit_Poly modifier applied. I use this to do a first-pass quick cleanup on imported SolidEdge models; it helps eliminate duplicate faces and odd smoothing groups.
