[Supplies] Custom Scripts and Other Stuff - Requests and Downloads

Hello everyone,

This thread contains some of the scripts I've written or found that will help our troops in the field during the dominance war.

=================================================
I've gone ahead and rewritten Neil Blevin's old "Wire Jumble" script into a new, more robust utility called "Wire Jumble". You'll find it's now a trivial task to get wires spread over your characters, and it's the first (hopefully of many) utility contributions from your local Supplies coordinator.

I'll keep my ear to the ground if I find any other good scripts or utilities that'll help the war effort.

Download the Wire Bundle Script here.
Learn how to use Wire Bundle with this week's Monday Movie.

Let me know if you find any errors, or if you think it's worth expanding this script to do other cool things (like more "orderly" bundles).

=================================================

This one was called "Weld TexVert" and it added a tool to your unwrap UVW window that let you interactively weld UVW verts in the same way you'd weld them in editable poly. Kind of a nice little feature for when you're working on UVWs. You can find it in the UnwrapUVW modifier's "edit" window under "Tools>Weld Selected...". Ordinarily you'd have to try to weld the verts, and if you didn't like the threshold, you'd have to go Options>Preferences>Weld threshold every time.

You can download the 3dsMax plug-in here.



=================================================


Cheers,
--Mr. B

Video repaired! Sorry about that; I keep the Monday Movies private until I get all the details worked out. Guess I forgot to send this one public!

So, if ive figured this out correctly... This creates wires, as in electric/power cables. Or when you say wires, are you refering to something else? If its the first (cables) then i love you

It's the first one- it creates randomized cables via a spline or objects to follow. I love you too.

Just watched the movies. Very clear and well-presented. You are good at these Mr GBS.

BTW, guys, you should enable thread thumbs for the DW4 threads.

Yes I was wondering why they weren't showing up. I thought it might have been done as a bandwidth saver or something, but I still want it.

also cool stuff, I may have to play with it.

As a matter of fact, there are a number of scripts I wrote back when I was vying for a position as a technical artist/internal tools lackey. I bet they'd really help the war effort!

This one was called "Weld TexVert" and it added a tool to your unwrap UVW window that let you interactively weld UVW verts in the same way you'd weld them in editable poly. Kind of a nice little feature for when you're working on UVWs. Ordinarily you'd have to try to weld the verts, and if you didn't like the threshold, you'd have to go Options>Preferences>Weld threshold every time.

You can download the 3dsMax plug-in here.

Hmm; no love for weld tex vert? I'll see if I can brush off the dust from some of these other scripts (and finish others). I've got:
1. "Chew Edges" - A script that "muddies up" the edges of turbosmoothed objects.
2. "Max Packer" - A script that sizes UVW clusters based on occlusion and area.
3. "Ultibolt" - Procedural nut, bolt, and nail creator.

Any ideas you guys have for scripts you need, let me know!
