This script helps you to use Biped's Copy/Paste more conveniently.

-Copy Collection (Create / Delete / Save / Load / Rename)
-Copy & Paste (Copy / Paste / Paste Opposite / Rename / Delete)
-it is more convenient to see, and the movement is short and fast.(No need to enter the motion panel)
-Even if you do not select the biped, the dialog maintains the connection with the biped, and even if you select another object (different bone), the copy function works well.

This script is free.

Import and update models coming from Archicad, Revit, Sketchup, Rhino3d or Autocad while retaining all work done in 3dsmax (applied materials, modifiers, properties and transformations)
Models coming from your CAD/BIM program will be imported, cleaned and reorganized to result in one mesh per material. On the next import all materials and modifiers applied in 3dsmax are copied onto the new model.

This script merges the functions of Archicad Importer, Revit Importer and Sketchup Importer.
