CAD Cleaner : 3ds Max utility script
The first of several scripts to be migrated to the new web site...
This is another simple script to tidy up imported CAD models. It seems that no matter how good your import algorithms are, there are always a few extra vertices or some odd smoothing areas. I've found a pass with this script goes a long way to a better model, though in my experience, some editing (or a lot of editing) is still required for a very clean mesh.
N.B. This script will only work on a collapsed mesh/polymesh, before any modifiers are added. Something about the data structure within Max makes this MUCH faster on Editable Polys than on Editable Meshes. You've been warned. Very little error checking other than to confirm it can attempt the weld and smooth operations.
