Material Name to Mat ID Name

2 votes

Material IDs are blank by default. This populates the blank names by copying the names of the current submaterial, ignoring undefined materials and slots that already have names in them.

Written in Max 2016, but should work in all other recent versions as well.

Sanitize Object Names

2 votes

Removes special characters from object names which can cause issues with network rendering. These often appear when bringing in a model from Revit.

- Inch and feet characters (" and ') are replaced with in and ft.
- Both 's and s' are replaced with s.
- Most other common special characters are currently replaced with underscores.

SteamRoller

14 votes

Steamroller unwraps every objects in a selection using Max's built-in flatten function based on the specified parameters. Steamroller is mainly intended as a quick and dirty method of quickly unwrapping lightmap UVs on large sets of objects, similar to the automatic unwrap in Render to Texture.

Autodesk_Map to Bitmaptexture

2 votes

This script looks for Autodesk_Map textures in all scene materials and replaces them with standard bitmaps instead. Now that this script is finally general purpose, I'll be rolling a copy of it into the my Autodesk to Standard Material Converter script. The stand-alone version of the script will remain here as usual.

Autodesk_Map textures are generally found in Max files with data imported from Revit.
