Mx Tools - FormCutter 3.0

Mx Tools has recently launched its recent update to the FormCutter script for 3ds Max that helps to cut along a drawn path on objects.

What is FormCutter?

It is used to cut inward or outward in objects along a freehand path that you draw with the tool and provides various ways to achieve that.

FormCutter covers a lot of uses, from quick ideation to final output to developing interactive projects and playing with your ideas, including a few options to help you to improve the aesthetics of your designs.

Its user-friendly interface has a variety of color themes and allows for docking to any corner of the screen. FormCutter supports several cut types such as cut, add, split, draw, and carve.

You can draw shapes, such as circles, boxes, ngons, shapes, and meshes, on the mesh surface or screen view. A library feature also allows for the storage and retrieval of past designs.

FormCutter’s drawing tools can mirror shapes in the 2D axis in local or world space and clone them in grid or radial layouts. Features like grid snap, face mesh vertices snap, angle snap by 45 degrees, and drawing orientation alignment promotes accuracy. Additional tools include a cloth panel, variable round, chamfer, shell, symmetry, and pivot.
