View Full Version : SDK help, is there anything up to date?

I am trying to implement a new function for maxscript. This function will export geometry into a text file. The reason why I dont use the 3dsmax plugin wizard is, that I want to make it as simple as possible since I am not a c++ master. I made a little c++ win32 program work in devC++ which will output vertex/poly/uvw data to a text file. (right now just a simple string exporter)
Now, I tried to make good use of the included sample intervalArray.cpp to start up with following the guidlines in the Maxscript Sdk Programmer's Guide corresponding help, but I get a lots of errors in Visual Studio 2005.
Is it possible that at least that project someone have it right. I assume, as most of the examples outdated, those are simply years old.
Thanks a bunch.

Hi losbellos,
the IntervalArray example in 3dsMax SDK Help is broken, as stated by its author Chris Johnson in this thread ( because of transcription to html. You can find the working code in maxsdk\howto\maxscript\intervalarray folder.

Other then the docs, you can find information by looking the great amount of "how to" code as well as "samples" which are pieces of 3ds Max current code.
