Delete specific faces
show user profile  AlCapowned
Hi there. I have several meshes from the game 'Unreal', and I've been removing certain parts of the meshes. However, it takes a really long time to edit each mesh one by one. Is there a maxscript out there that can delete certain faces from the mesh (such as faces 478 to 492)? I've been searching for a while and haven't found anything.

I'd really appreciate the help.

Open the maxscript listener with F11. Enable the macro recording in one of it's menus.

Now delete the faces you want, and the action will be shown in the listener.
It may include setting the right subobject etc, just select whatever you need from that, and edit the numbers if you need to.

Now go to new script, paste the tet you've got in the new window, and either save the script for later use, press evaluate for single use, or select the script and drag it to the main toolbar to create a button for it

subobjectLevel = 4
$.EditablePoly.SetSelection #Face #{478..492}
$.EditablePoly.delete #Face

Assuming it's an editable poly.

Lol, beaten to the punch!
