In our daily work we had developed some tools to enhance our workflow and ease recurrent tasks, better suiting Autodesk 3ds Max to the needs of an archviz/design technical modeller. These tools have evolved to become feature rich plugin suiting these needs, and we made it available to the public.
Design Toolbox is a collection of tools specially designed to accelerate and simplify basic modeling tasks for architectural models, furniture design and other tasks where accurate modeling is needed.
Professionals used to CAD or precision software will find it very familiar some of the included transformation tools, like reference rotation, scale and position, measurement tools and reference guides.
Ability to place snapping points at polylines intersections, visual rulers, fast UVW mapping and randomizations, cloning tools, scene management, panel grids, fast pivot placement and workplanes are some of the tools included, and new ones are added with each update.
NEW: The upgrade to the full DesignToolBox package, for current customers of (discontinued) refGuides plugin is now FREE of charge. Install the demo and your current refGuides license will be valid.
