New Plugin Released - Spline Tools
show user profile  Boomer

I'm pleased to announced my most recent plugin release - details below:


(Overland Park, KS, November 30, 2014) – Boomer Labs announces the release of its new plugin SplineTools.

Boomer Labs is pleased to announce the release of its newest plugin SplineTools. SplineTools is a 3ds Max plugin that delivers a collection of 6 Spline related tools and enhancements. Capabilities include:

Freehand Spline: This new Spline Type allows the user to draw splines in the viewport “freehand” with knots automatically added.

NormalizeSpline2: An enhancement to the standard Normalize Spline, this tool provides a number of advanced options, including the ability to specify knot count as well as optionally retain nearby knots within a certain tolerance. This tool also adjusts soft selection values.

PathDeform2: An extensive update to PathDeform. Most notably, this modifier operates in Object-Space such that the modified object conforms the selected spline path. Options include the ability to animate the twist along the path of the spline as well having the deformed object adopt the Material ID of the underlying spline.

ReSpline: A high quality knot reduction tool that will optimally reduce the number of knots and adjust their handles in such a way as to reproduce the original spline as closely as possible.

Spline Influence: This tool permits the soft selection of spline knots based on proximity to other objects in the scene. This functionality is useful for applying subsequent modifiers selectively across the spline. For added functionality, Boomer Labs has also released a freeware plugin Influence Helper which provides enhanced knot selection capability.

Spline Relax: This relax function for splines smooths out spline knots and/or their associated handles.

Already in use in studios around the world, SplineTools is now available to all 3ds max users with 64 bit versions of 3ds Max 2010 through 2015. List price is $95 USD per seat with no charge for render nodes. Special pricing of $80 USD is available until 1/1/2015 in celebration of its release.

A free downloadable demo version and additional information is available from Boomer Labs at

I was going to suggest that, visually showing it off probably helps more! :)

I would suggest doing even more videos if you have time :) -
