miauu's Script Pack is a set of scripts that will help you to make faster and easier some of the tedious task when you use 3ds Max.

miauu's Script Pack include:

Visual Pivot Placer

Visual Pivot Placer offers you the fastest and easiest way for manipulating the pivot of single object or of a group of objects. There are two additional scripts. The first one allows you to set the pivot of the selected object to the center of the selected verts, edges or faces by usnig the assigned hotkey. The second one allows you to set the pivot of the selected object anywhere in the scene by using the assigned hotkey.

In-Volume Scatter

In-Volume Scatter is a tool that allows you to create clones of one objects and place them in the volume of desired geometry object. You can scatter objects in 3D or 2D shapes. Also, you can use In-Volume Scatter to randomize the position, scale and rotation of the selected objects. You can scatter multiple objects at once and you can select objects and removes collision between them.

Orbit viewport around picked point

Orbit viewport around picked point offers a new cursor based camera navigation, which allows you to easily orbit around specific areas of focus, because the point of interest is automatically placed on the geometry under the cursor when you begin navigating. To work properly you must be in Orbit Selected or Orbit SubOjbect mode. You can use the "Alt", "Shift" and "Ctrl" keys to make your navigation more comfortable.

Alt+click will execute the "zoom extents" to the object, in which is placed "the point of orbit".
Shift+click will place "the point of orbit" and will execute the "zoom extents" to "the point of orbit".
Ctrl+click will place "the point of orbit" and will execute the "zoom extents" to the object, in which is placed "the point of orbit".
You can set "the point of orbit" in object, that is a part of XRef scene. Note that in the scenes with thousands of objects, there will be a delay between the time when you click an object and you can start orbiting.

Nested Isolation

Nested Isolation allows you to have up to 10 levels of nested objects isolations. You can move objects from one level to another, to add new objects to any level. You can enter in isolation mode even if you are not in top sub-object level. This work for Editable_poly and Editable_mesh objects.

 Multi Dirs Save

Multi Dirs Save allows you to save current max file in several locations on local or network hard drives.

Clone between

Clone between is a tool that allows you to specify how many clones you want to create between two points. The created arrays are parametric. At any time you can go back and made changes in your arrays. You can set the distance between the clones with accuracy.

Align Tool

Align Tool offers you a new ways to align two objects - parallel, coplanar, perpendicular, interactive normals align and 3 points rotate and align.

 Live Measure v2

 Live Measure v2 allows you to measure the length of edges, segments or splines, area of faces, dimension of objects, distance between the active camera(Camera view) and the selected object, distance between objects, distance between points in real time and the angle between three points.

Scale Tool

Scale Tool is a tool that allows you to scale the desired object, to desired dimension with few easy steps. This tool is very useful when you import or merge objects, that's not match the scale in your scene. Supported objects are Editable Poly, Editable Mesh, and objects with Edit Poly modifier on the top of the modifier stack. You can scale groups, can set the dimensions of the objects by entering numbers(units) instead of percentages, can match the dimension of two objects or groups.
 
Set Edge Length

Set Edge Length is tool that allows you to change the length of the selected edges or segments to desired value. Supported objects are Editable Poly, Editable Mesh, Splines(Line and Editable Spline) and objects with Edit Poly modifier on the top of their modifier stack. IMPORTANT - for Editable Mesh and Spline objects setting the edge length is undoable.

 

Hidden Polys Manager

Hidden Polys Manager extends the built-in hide/unhide polygons functionality of 3ds Max. It allows you to hide or unhide certain part of the object.

 

Corner Align

Corner Align allows you to create corners by connecting vertices or edges with few very easy steps.

Brilliant, Just Brilliant

This set of tools are absolutely fantastic. I am using them in Max 2013. Not sure why Max does not have these built in anyway. I was having trouble aligning all kinds of irregular objects and let me tell you, just the align tool will save many hours of work. How silly that the built in measure tool in max just measures the bounding box. I can actually get measurements on totally irregular objects and surfaces now. The isolate tool is totally sweet.

PLEASE NOTE: The author built a lot into these, and you HAVE TO, HAVE TO, HAVE TO watch the videos. If you don't you will miss out on lots of tricks and as in my case (before I watched) believe that some scripts (like visual pivot place) don't work. No they work very well but if you don't know where to use right and left mouse buttons and such you will run into trouble. He is right. These are and should be commercial scripts and although I was hesitant at first, the money is well spent. One of the best script packs I have downloaded.

 miauu's Script Pack ver. 1.6

 

miauu's Script Pack ver. 1.6 is available.

 

Changelog:

 

Clone Between is updated to version 1.2. Now you can see the distance between the clones and the distance between the master nodes(total distance) - idea by Marcus Erich Waldmann. You can set the distance between the clones with accuracy. Distance works with objects, created with previous versions of "Clone between".
