Window box is a script (and tutorial) to show you how you can use Dotnet and Win32 methods to get back dialogs you have lost from using multiple monitors.

See "Additional Info" for the latest version history.

Displacement Roof Surfaces is a Free MaxScript that will take your existing roof geometry and properly apply UV Mapping coordinates to each roof plane and then apply convincing materials and displacement modifiers to the geometry.

Our goal is to eliminate the need for filling your 3d scenes with millions of polygons of roof tile geometry, thus keeping your viewports moving quickly and saving you hours of tedious work.

Ceiling Grid Generator

99 votes

Ceiling Grid Generator is a free MaxScript that will quickly create 'metal' ceiling grids commonly seen in commercial interior spaces where acoustical tile ceiling exists.

This script allows you to set custom sizing for the tile openings, the width of the grid, the height of the grid, and also creates the strips along the border for a nice finished look. You can also shift the grid side to side or up and down as well as rotate the grid. You can then preview the final grid, or go back and make more changes before committing to a grid that fits your space perfectly.

Send Gmail from maxscript...

73 votes

This is a small c# class I wrote to help me send gmail from maxscript. I am going to use this in a special project where I need an email as soon as the rendering is complete then it sends me an preview image of that image.

You might need another reason for being able to gmail from inside 3dsmax.

The reason it is hardcoded for gmail was due to the requierments of my project. If there is a need for opening up so that you can have any settings, then I might do that in the future.

See included maxscript for how you can add this to one of your scripts.

LOD Creator

Here's my version of LOD creation script, it uses multiRes modifier. It works on multiple geometry and retains the geo type. It retains the skin modifier too, so you can run on a skinned character as well. Feel free to use this script and lemme know if you want me to add any feature to it or if it has any bugs.
