View Full Version : ShapeMerge does not work

03 March 2006, 12:58 AM

I just read in the MaxScript Help that "ShapeMerge compound objects are not constructable by MAXScript"

This is very bad news because I often use ShapeMerge for modelling architecture, and I thought about using it in some scripts to reduce modelling time. Is there any workaround or another solution known for cutting a hole into a surface by projecting a spline shape?

I am not sure if you could script this but lately I have been using Pro Booleans for doing shapemerges... Takes a little more work but the results are much cleaner... and may be scriptable.

Good luck.

Most compound objects aren't assesible via script I'm afraid, some with lofts.
