Tagged 'Scripts Wanted'

Custom Script wanted to take existing objects, delete modifiers (down to Sweep), create copies, modify Sweep Profile etc

I have a set of 100 products, but I need a custom script that will go through them all in a batch fashion and create 1000's of products, basically making copies of these existing objects but with different heights....

So, currently I have 100's of objects that are 150mm high and I want to create other height sized objects (there are six different heights, from 70mm to 220mm).

The 100's objects are already created and their names are all nice and logical (code, height, thickness).

This is what I need done in a batch process;

open/break ~400 splines

Hi there,

this should be a really simple script. But I can't fathom out how to do this:
I need to open up a couple of hundred splines. They are all closed but I need them now to be open. I use them as a spline for forest pack. Exploding them will not bring the right result. They need to stay intact, but need to be open.

I was thinking of selecting every first vertex of every spline and braking that.
However I don't know how to select the vertex by number nor what the break function is. MaxScript recorder will only show me the subObjectlevel = 1 but not what happens after that.

Convert all blocks to mesh

Hi!

I imported a 3D model from a DWG. It came with many block objects (solids, not lines).
If I select all of them, the option to 'convert to mesh' in the RMB quad is not available.

Any chance that someone makes a script to convert each object to mesh, one by one or all together?

Thank you.

shape offset-outline

Hello friends Is there a plugin that makes it possible to offset or outline to shape without having to go down to the subobject spline level? A modifier that knew how to take any shape (arc, rectangle, etc.) and make it outline with a value I could give it - for example 20 cm. And that I can always go back to the shape level With option: 1. From the center 2. With positive value 3. With a negative value And the same as above only this time offset and not outline (for me outline is to make a closed shape obtained from two parallel lines.

backface occluded toggle

I'm looking for the script that toggle between backface and occluded modes, to switch between them by on hotkey.

on first press:

$.ignoreBackfacing = on
$.ignoreOccluded = off

on second press:

$.ignoreBackfacing = off
$.ignoreOccluded = on

Can't handle it by myself

Animated Align - based on existing keyframes...

I've got a small keyframe baking script,very similar to "Animated Align" by Jim Jagger.

The script is old and outdated, and at some point in time, I suspect because of changes to maxscript language changes in the past few years, the scripts ability to work broke down.

This script originally baked keys to the target object, but only onto the same frames that the source object had keyframes on, rather than the standard "every frame" or "every nth" frame options.
