New MaxScript. Simple and handy as aways. Free.
It's very useful for my use. You can quickly save and recall up to 5 groups of selections. You can increment memories adding objects to them (Which is SO useful in some situations (to help in the process of organizing big and messy scenes)...
Hide and Un-Hide from Memory buttons. Isolate groups, etc.

BTW, the video says QuickSelect, but i changed the script name to Memento.;)

Hello, my first MAXscript is complete.
Script for 3D modelers and 3D animators.
It is recommended that you use the Y up coordinate system to perform operations on character assets such as unity3D.

Use after 3D modeling mesh editing and size checking.

[Option]
Rotation XYZ : Pivot coordinate Change.

Option_Move : Moving the Selected Model is Location is all 0.0
Option_Rotate: When released, it is not affected by the coordinate system.

Final Apply : Button is apply all of the above.

Created using 3ds max official manual and internet.

With this script you can select splines' segments by matID.
There are two methods of selection:
- "Use IDs of selected segments" - select some segments and press the [Select] button. The script will find the matIDs of the selected segments and will select all other segments with the same matIDs.
- "Use IDs typed below" - type as many matIDs as you want in the field(separate matIDs with comma) and press the [Select] button. The script will select all segments with the matIDs entered by you.

Select Hidden, Visible or Occluded Objects

Select only visible objects! Delete all objects hidden inside other objects!

If you are working with object heavy CAD models you probably know that often 90% of the objects are hidden internal components of the rig. Stuff you usually don't need or want. Object count that make 3dsMax crawl.

This script lets you either select what is visible or hidden from the current view - or let you scan the whole scene. 
It's a very efficient way to clean up your scenes with a high accuracy!
