l-system

Hello
I am looking for l-system plugin/script. I would like to have l-system similar to this in houdini. I mean fully automatic work. Operating only on String. I do NOT want to have button add branch or something similar.
Anybody knows if there is something similar on 3ds Max software?
Thanks for any help

The Blurbeta plugin package contains a L-System plugin, don't know how this compares to anythin in Houdini...

The one that blur did is very old, and very simplified in comparison to Houdini. I haven't seen any for Max that will match it... Why not use Houdini and export it?

I would export it if only I could. Because of license restriction I can't export OBJ/FBX so it is main problem.

I read info about working and rules in package but unfortunatelly I can't insall plugin.

I put file LparserMax.dlo in "plugins" folder and I have some error when I run 3ds Max. I am new in Max. Maybe I should browse plugin via max or do something else?

I think blurlib.dlu is required for all the blurplugins, put that into 'stdplugs' folder, lparsermax.dlo goes to 'plugins' folder. Also, make sure you're copying the right files (correct max version and 32bits/64bits flavor).

It's esssential that you copy the correct file to "/plugins"
Meaning the correct Max version number ( Max 2012 or Max 2013 ) and the correct build, either x86 or x64, in relation to the Max version you are using

I have no problem launching Max 2012 x64 with "LparserMax.dlo" in "/plugins" ...

Edit:
just noticed that in the Max 2013 package i linked above the lparser is missing
I guess Dave (from maxplugins.de) had serious recompile problems because of the Unicode switch that happened with Max 2013

So if you are on Max 2013 it seems you are out of luck with that plugin ....

You're right, there are quite a few plugins that haven't been updated yet because the Unicode changes take up more time than I have.

You could always write your own. Christopher Diggins just posted a tutorial for writing a procedural tree script, which could be expanded for an l-system approach. You can find the tutorial on the AREA here.
