Fast Housing generates an architectural structure through a custom procedural mesh object, you can change parameters and watch the results in real time. It's an easy and intuitive way to create a house at a simple level, its versatility allows you to create your own style, usefull for the creation of urban backgrounds.

This script creates a FA_House primitive object which works as any 3ds Max object: any deformer can be applied, renderable, can be converted to mesh etc ...

Tetrahedral Spline

10 votes

Tetrahedral mesh primitive primitive traced along a picked spline path. The starting direction is controlled by the Seed parameter, after that new tetrahedrons are added in directions resulting to the closest match to the original path. When turbosmoothed, the result is a uniform organic-looking surface.

Pulley Belt

Technically you can probably call it a rounded isosceles trapezoid but it will be more useful as a base for path of bicycle chains or pulley belts. When both radii are the same and spline set to renderable, it could also be used as a simple chain link.
