mcjPrimMaker




warning, this is a bit of a rush release,
in the following days or weeks there will probably be some improvement and safety checks added
in the meantime, you should always save your work before using mcjPrimMaker,
because, who knows, it may get stuck in an infinite loop.




Introduction


mcjPrimMaker is a script for Daz Studio 1,2,3,4 which lets you create thin or thick tubes, sticks, boxes, cups and cones.

the initial idea was to create objects that could be bent using mcjBend, i wanted those objects to look smooth without excessive polygon-count.

mcjPrimMaker also has edge-hardening options, which make your shapes look good after Studio's SubD conversion

Installation


The zip package is found at the bottom of this page

unzip it in your daz content folder, typically C:\Program Files\DAZ\Studio\content\

once installed, it will appear in your content library, under Studio / Scripts / mcasual


Use


The settings should be self-explanatory

"Harden tube ends" will add an edge-loop around the extremities of the tube.
This feature makes the subDivided objects retain their sharp edges

"Harden tube angles" is often used to make square-tube corbers look sharp.
it adds an edge loop on either sides of each corner-edge



Daz Studio 1.8 users will have to specify .obj import settings

the correct settings is "custom settings, 1 unit = 1 cm "
