Cut quads and N-gons.

Save Preset system.

Works with edges and polygons on Editable Poly objects. On Edit_Poly objects works only with edges.

You can choose to Keep Quads when cutting.

For more information read Help.

Drag-n-drop miauuEdgeCutter_v1.mzp to 3ds max. Restart 3ds max. Go to Customize - Customize User Interface. Under "miauu" category you will find "miauu's Edge Cutter".

Strange, but I-mode does not work in max2011 and up.

Version 1.5 installs, but "--Runtime error: Cannot convert value to bitArray: undefined" message always appeares after second cut in interactive mode: http://imgur.com/E9B78

Version 1.6 installs only if MAX is started "as administrator", but after installing nothing happens when I press "edgeCutter" icon - dialog not opens.

bronius, download version

bronius, download version 1.5, unzip the mzp file and open mzp.run with Notepad. You can see where to place files and folders.
$max means max root folder.
Can you tell me your max and OS version?

version 1.6 installs the script in hidden folder. If you want I can tell you here to place files for version 1.6.

Now it don't work at all.. :( Which install script files must be placed in which dirs? I'm asking because install is not working and I will try to put them by hand.

Теперь скрипт совсем неработает. Какие файлы из инстала в какие директории нужно класть? Попробую в ручную..

The problem is not in tma MAX

The problem is not in tma MAX version. I assumed that you have Windows Vista, 7 or 8. The OS is the problem. I will fix the installer later this night and you can install it properly.
