MODO I SMO CAD TOOLS Kit - v1.52 for Modo 12.2v3 to 14.0

PS: Refer to this link for Modo 14 compatibility update: https://bit.ly/2Upc4Nl

Hi everyone,

SMO CAD TOOLS Kit is a set of tools designed to help cleaning meshes that comes from CAD data.


Christmas BIG Gift Update:

Now that the gifts are there you can still donate at checkout or via the Coffee tip . It let you (yes i’m talking to you), dear faithful followers give me some support whenever you can and even after you’ve already purchased them.


It consist of 4 different categories of tools / scripts / macros:

  • CAD for Preparing and Cleaning data that comes from CAD files and simplify the workflow on this task.
  • REBEVEL for rebuilding existing bevels without changing their value and curvature. (Work on Quad polystrip only actually)
  • REBUILD CYLINDER to decrease existing tesselation of High poly selection of polygons along the 3 different axis. Perfect for reducing Polycount of a CAD mesh, to create a lower poly mesh for further use in MOP Booleans kit of William Vaughan for example or via the simple Boolean Tools that Modo include already.
  • REBUILD HOLE same as Rebuild Cylinder but for holes.


Notice:

This Kit will not being updated anymore. Refer to SMONSTER Club Membership for new updates.


<------------------------------- Details ------------------------------->

CAD functions:

  • Cleanup sets of coplanar Triangles into Ngons on the 6 sides along World Axis (x+, x-, y+, y-, z+,z-). Reducing a lot of selection issue when dealing with surface that can be heavily triangulated. It lowers down the file size too, this way.
  • Detriangulate Preset action that is fine for most cases
  • Unmerge-Separate a mesh by separating pieces using Hard Edge Interpretation. Fine for separating part that are all connected, even if they didn't share the same shape characteristic.
  • Merge Items macro that glue all mesh again to reconnect them all. (Boundary edge weld technique)
  • Cut to new Mesh Item, for easily split parts and reorganize your polygons data.
  • Delete Edge in... Poly Macro based on Face Angle with 3 presets: Works on Current poly selection only, Similar facing normal polygons that are touching with 2, 5, 10 degree presets and similar on object


REBEVEL functions:

We all knows about the Unbevel macros from Seneca Menard, right (If not, you should). It's affine tool, but i've created mine in a different way to rebuild Bevels on demand, wile keeping also starting and ending Edge of the polystrip, as well as the Original Bevel Curvature. It works in all different orientation.

multiple Edge count preset are defined:

3 / 4 / 6 / 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 / 24 /28 / 32 Edges

(I've removed the 2 Edges preset due to bugs. I will maybe add it again in further release, but not sure.)

Now the Rebevel have a rebevel by user count entry. You can define any value from 3 to 128 with pair or impair value as well.


REBUILD CYLINDER functions:

Recreate a Cylinder based on a Polygon selection. Maintaining the size and ratio of the original shape. Resulting Polygons are also added to a polygonal Selection Set to further select them quickly. Actually it only works on Selections of poly that are aligned on the World Axis so X Y and Z oriented Cylinders can be rebuild via a preset also.

multiple Edge count preset are defined:

6 / 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 / 24 Sides


REBUILD CYLINDER functions:

Same concept as the Rebuild Cylinder tool but for Holes instead.

You will enjoy this new Release. Now with UNDO Support ! on more tools.

Rebuild With Hole and Cylinder (Closed) now support UNDO, as well as processing is faster.

Rebuild With Cube also is now available. It works the same way as the other Rebuild With command.

Also the Cleanup NGON on X Y Z - now Support UNDO and it's also processing Faster.

New Rebuild Triangulated Ring: Flat and Round

Rebevel by user Count - now Support UNDO

(I have to get the support of Undo on the Rebevel command for the Presets. It's on my ToDoList.)


v1.02 ------- 05/03/2019

Now the Rebevel have a rebevel by user count entry. You can define any value from 3 to 128 with pair or impair value as well.

Also some new preset to the Delete Edges in...: Similar Touching Poly have been added with 2, 5, 10 Degree.

Structure of the Forms have been updated too to get a better organization under the Form Editor, in case you want to access to it and change some command.


Disclaimer:

(you need at least Modo 12.2v3 to run this kit to enjoy the Rebevel tool)
