3ds Max 2018.2 Update new features

Spread the love

New spline tools added to the latest 3ds Max update.


The Freehand Spline allows you to create hand-drawn splines directly in the viewport.


The Spline Influence Modifier allows you to create a soft selection of spline knots based on their proximity to specified objects.


The Spline Mirror Modifier allows you to easily duplicate a spline along a specified axis. Duplicates any present normals.


The Spline Morph Modifier allows you to blend between different shapes. Two methods available: progressive and blended.

  • The Spline Overlap Modifier detects self-overlapping splines and adjusts the displacement of the intersecting segments.
  • The Spline Relax Modifier smooths out splines by relaxing knot positions and/or handles.
  • The Optimize Spline Modifier reduces the number of knots and adjusts their handles to optimally reproduce the original spline as closely as possible.
  • The Influence Helper allows you to easily select vertices and apply proximity based falloffs to effects.
