Move/Clone to cursor

2 votes

Hi, this is simple script which move or clone selected objects to surface under cursor. You can bind it to any hotkey (I usualy use Alt+S and Alt+C). In this current version additional settings are avaiable only by hidden function call ObjToCursorSettings() which can be called via MaxScript Listener.

Instance Tool

48 votes

Instance tool analyze the geometry objects in the scene and finds groups of objects that could be represented as instances of one of them. Then the user can turn every group into actual instances and choose which object from the group will be preserved. The objects in the group are objects that have the same topology (could be morph targets of one another) and the difference between them could be described with transformation alone.

Instance-Align

Very useful script for interior visualisation (cafe, bars, restaurants): add lights, change chairs/ tables, put tableware on many tables, e.t.c.

1. Pick object to clone

2. Select targets, click pick targets -> ok

3. Choose align method:

- CenterXYZ

- ZCenterXY (Align minZ of source to maxZ targets)

- Pivot align

- match all transform

After execute new objects will be selected. U can select target objects (to hide or delete).

miauu's Extended Clone Tool adds new options to the standard Clone Options dialog.

The main goal - save time using these features:

- move the created objects to a new layer,

- move the created objects into existing layer

Find identical geometry and instance it

34 votes

Everybody who have imported large amount of data from any cad system know that it normally kills the instancing. The intention of this script is to find geometrically identical nodes and instance them. This script will of course work if someone have used copy instead of instance in a scene and wants them instanced instead.

Added 2015:
I'm happy to see that so many have tried out my Sunday hack that I made 5 years ago...but as it was only something to do for a Sunday its not really something I support. I would love to, but my daytime job takes all my time ;-)

Copy modifiers

Simple tool for copy/instance modifiers from source object to selected array of objects. Does not copy only edite_poly modifier because 3dsmax does not allow doing this by script.

InstancesToVRayProxy

5 votes

Select as many objects as you like and let InstancesToVRayProxy find any instanced objects and convert those instances to VRayProxies. InstancesToVRayProxy automatically outputs VRayProxy meshs (*.vrmesh files) to a given folder, creates VRayProxy objects and replaces the selected instances with instances of those VRayProxies. This may sound difficult but InstancesToVRayProxy will optimize your scene to do faster renderings and all you have to do is pick an output path and hit a button! Instanced VRayProxies only need to be loaded once per proxy mesh. This will cut down the setup time of your renderings.

Copy Replace

35 votes

Turns a selection of objects into instances or references of another object.

Fixed in v 2.0:

  • Instances outside the selection are not replaced anymore. (Thanks to Anubis)
  • Added the option to choose between instance or reference
  • Changed the "Button name" to "Copy replace"
