IT: edge script

  • Comment

Autodesk’s Jamie Gwilliam demonstrates a useful script for using exported CAD data within 3ds Max

The attached script will ‘turn off’ the internal face edges of imported geometry. This script will make the selected edges invisible. These can be manually brought back if required.

Also, as a reminder, the below ‘Hidden Line’ viewport style will automatically backface cull objects, and as a result give you much greater viewport performance on larger scenes. However, please note this script is unofficial and unsupported.

Using the script:

  1. Initial import showing edges

  2. Select objects required and then drag the .ms file into the viewport or from the MAXScript pulldown menu select ‘Run Script’ and choose the attached file
  3. End result
