Design Toolbox is a collection of tools specially designed to accelerate and simplify basic modeling tasks for architectural models, furniture design, and other tasks where accurate modeling is needed. Professionals used to CAD or precision software will find it very familiar with some of the included transformation tools, like reference rotation, scale and position, measurement tools and reference guides.

The ability to place snapping points at polylines intersections, visual rulers, fast UVW mapping and randomizations, cloning tools, scene management, panel grids, fast pivot placement, and workplanes are some of the tools included, and new ones are added with each update.

New tools are added periodically, check the complete feature list

Notes

  • If you are upgrading from refGuides, you will need to uninstall it first. Some files need to be manually removed.
  • Some features depend on the 3ds Max version. If you are working with a version before 2017, features like custom guide objects will not be available.
  • This is a commercial script. Some features are not available in the demo version.

If you have any ideas to improve these tools, or some tool you would like, feel free to comment, suggestions are always welcome!

Install DTB crashes Backburner

Installing DTB in Max2018 results in a 3dsMax Adapter error in Backburner (No "ShowProperties" function for undefined), making it impossible to use it.

Please fix this as soon as possible!

(If you install DTB without the ribbon extension Backburner works OK!)

Excellent Collection

This is the first Max script I have ever purchased.
I do alot of ArchViz and interiors and I find this collection of tools very helpful. The "Eyedropper" tool in itself is a huge timesaver.

Coming from a Sketchup background, I find the Max measuring system painful to use and the RefGuides tool helps in creating accurate models.

Customer service is fast and friendly.
