Absolutely indispensable for all things script-related is ScriptSpot:

Much in the same vein as ScriptSpot is Scripts@tdp.nu:
note that this does not appear to be updated as frequently as ScriptSpot.

Aside from here (hopefully!), the best place to go for answers to all your script queries:
The support.discreet.com WebBoard
see the Maxscript section. Registration required.

This guy fields at least half of the Q’s on support.discreet.com, but oddly lacks a homepage - Swami Lama. Here’s a ScriptSpot listing of his contributions to the community:
Swami’s Scripts
for you scripters, don’t miss Swami’s Wad-O-MXSWads extension!

One of the Lords of Maxscript, IMO - Borislav Petrov (Bobo):

And the homes of some other noteworthy Maxscripters:

Roger Hyde

Steve Johnson

Herman Saksono

Martijn Van Herk

Chris Subagio

Grant Adam

Ofer Zelichover

Definite “mad props!” go to Meshtools’ author Laszlo Sebo, whose website seems to be a bit under construction at the moment:)

I’ve got a new book out, MAXScript Made Easy, an inexpensive downloadable e-book.

This is also the curriculum for the first part of the MAXScript course I teach with Bobo at CGSociety. The current class is already in session, but there will probably be another one offered in May 2007. If you want to be informed when the new class starts, contact biljana@ballisticmedia.net.

even though this tutorial doesnt seem to be quite finished yet. it really taught me some basics of maxscript in a fun interesting way that really made me want to get better at this wonderful scripting language. :thumbsup:


I saw a fellows web page not too long ago where he wrote a maxsript .pdf eBook and was selling it for about $7.00USD.

Does anyone know the link and/or if it’s any good?


That’s my book, and I’m a girl, sorry. :slight_smile: See my earlier message in this thread. I use it to teach MAXScript and my students love it.
