3ds Max Pattern Generation / by Kevin Olsen

3ds Max is proving to be a fantastic design tool and something I'm very interested in learning more about. Thanks to its great community of custom scripts, the capabilities are extended even further for specialized applications. 

My program for the Evolo Skyscraper Competition, a skybase for weather fighting drones, is going to rely heavily on these scripts to communicate my idea. One such script I'm really excited about is Pattern Generator v1.1.


I found this script via Script Spot and the video demo totally blew me away. Since I'm looking to Syd Mead and Sci-Fi for inspiration for my project, this script seems like the perfect way to help model complex forms rapidly.
