one is a modelling aid, mainly for e.poly modelling, to quickly show
which faces are triangles, or 5+ side polygons.
The plugin works by
setting the vertex colours to colourise the model, and toggles the
vertex colour display.
Toggle Poly Colours:
toggles the polygon colouring effect on/off. With this off no
processing takes place.
Toggle Shaded: toggles
the object property 'shaded' button for vertex colouring.
The 'Face Counts' group
reports how many of each are present - when you have tiny triangles
that are hard to spot at first glance this lets you know they are
Limitations - converts to
Poly. Supported types are
TriMeshes, (ie regular editable mesh stack), and Polymeshes (e.poly),
although I use this tool when e.poly modelling almost exclusively. A
mesh will be converted to poly, but since this tool is generally not
left in the stack that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
ColorPolyByVert is now
Use it however you like,
but the usual not responsible for any damage caused applies.
ColorPolyByVerts for 3dsmax5 / 3dsmax6 / 3dsmax7 / 3dsmax8 /
3dsmax9/2008 (32 and 64 bit) - this is an installer
No installer for the 2009 versions, unzip and
the put into your plugins directory manually and restart 3dsmax, as you
would install any plugin.
Earlier versions download and run the installer, which puts it into
your plugins directory and then restart 3dsmax.
If you like it and/or
the other free plugins I have available and would like to make your
appreciation known, a 'thankyou' email is always nice. If you feel more
strongly, purchase an RPManager license and we both get something out
email@example.com with any bug info. Scene files demonstrating
problems are much easier to troublshoot.
