Yesterday a friend asked me if I could make a quick tool that would show or hide objects with the prefix ‘COL_’ in Max. Being that I had never worked in MaxScript beyond a simple ‘hello world’ level, I told him sure, give me half an hour. This script was the result.

Download Script here.

Directions for use:

  • ┬áCopy this script to your <Max Directory>\stdplugs\stdscripts folder
  • Restart Max
  • Open up the ‘Customize User Interface’ Dialog ( Customize > Customize User Interface )
  • Select ‘GoodUtils’ from the ‘Category’ drop down
  • Select ‘Show or hide collision’ from the actions
  • Assign a hotkey using the assign hotkey area to the right
  • ‘Save’ your UI settings
