View Full Version : Is this a dream???

Hello wavers,

Is this a dream?
Is there a possibility to have a script that perform those operations in lightwave??
those are screenshots from nendo demo.
it has this great feature that allows us to bevel points and vertices......
extremelly useful.
well, lets go back to at-least-6-steps-to-perform-that-simple-nendo-operation:)
thanks a lot folks,

The problem with this is that it creates a lot of 5 sided polygons.

heyas werner,

yeah!! i left this suggestion on hold for a while because of that, but now im have a different oppinion.
heres why:

1 - we have metaform plus and cman's polysubdivide to take care of n sided polys.

2 - a lot of energy trying to keep 4 sided polys will be saved in prol of the visual side of the model.

id love to have a plug like that and perform a few tests with it.
i might be wrong but i think it would be great!!!)

Hey loganarts

I know what you mean! I'm new to Lightwave (used max since ver. 1). I used this in 3ds max 4.2 all the worked like a million bucks!
I would definatly use this if somebody wrote a script.

there's a plug called "mentory"

it can bevel that edge as you posted
also, u can well control the bevel size
but sometimes it will crash...

hope this help:wip:

barryria, I searched the net for Mentory and found some japanese sites, but the only plugins I found were in Mac format. Is there an Intel version available?

It's one of the fatures I really like in MAX.
Mind you MAX is all tri's so even when MAX appears to be creating 4 -5 sided polys with this chamfer tool it is still dividing them into tri's underneath.

Wonder if it would be too much trouble to send me the plugin to try too. Could not find it in

Thanks in advance. :bounce:

Here this plug.
Its dont work like Nendo or Max chamfer tool , but can be useful. Need to to select two connected poly to run. Run till point shared for three polygones.
Thanx for Miron for the post of this plug.

Also, something about Mentory that I didn't know right away is that you can put the entire mesh that you want to 'chamfer' into a background layer, then select an empty foreground layer, and run Mentory-- it will chamfer/bevel the entire mesh, putting the updated copy into your selected foreground layer.
