Supports the following 3rd Party Renderers

Why use Scribe?

Use Scribe to clean up imported CAD drawings and fix complex issues that traditionally could take you days to resolve. It has proven to be an invaluable tool to our members working in architectural visualisation.

Overview

Scribe is a complete shape and spline manipulation toolset. It is mainly used when importing CAD drawings into 3ds Max, helping artist save days of painstaking work preparing drawings for 3d modelling. Scribe has other spline tools to help you optimise, trace and create splines.

Features

  • Spline diagnostics will help you find and repair splines.
  • Remove overlapping CAD splines.
  • Conform splines to any surface.
  • Live optimise, subdivide, curve to the corner, and outline tools.
  • A bulk attach and detach for splines and shapes.
  • Fast attach and detach splines.
  • Trace CAD plans, creating closed splines ready for 3d modelling.

Requirements & Supported Software

  • Static MacID
  • Autodesk 3ds Max 2015 - 2021
