The path max gives you should exist,
normally it starts with "c:\users\" (yours is missing an S)

Perhaps you made a typo ? I just copied the path you gave me, but it should be the path max shows in the error.

You can try to enable hidden files to navigate easier.

I just checked it out and when I docked the panel it basically maximized and I couldn't see any of the viewports, and I couldn't figure out how to undock it. Neutral

EDIT
I have fixed the beta10 file. It should be only be able to float, dock left and right now.


That's weird Smile

Did you dock it manually at the top or bottom?
Usually you can right click the docking bar (the double lines to the top or left of the calculator) to choose docking or float options.

It always used to dock at the left by default, the basics did not change.

Did you update/restore the config?

Perhaps re-running the script?

Can you try the edit config and find the "docking" value at the bottom of the file, it can be either left or right. Any other value should float it.

Thanks for updating it. I'll try it in a moment.

I manually docked it by dragging it to the left side of Max.

There was no docking bar for me to right-click on or drag the panel away from the left. Confused

Virtox,

loved the calculator and the object properties matched those of 3DS. Excellent work, a very useful tool indeed. I even tried adding Silver to the materials list.

FWIW, I tried the calculator in the new 3DS 2012 version and I could not get the object properties either by "selected object" or "pick object" buttons. If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.

Anyway, now my problem is solved I can place an order.

Glad it could be of service Smile

Too bad the latest max broke it Sad

Currently I don't have access to Max 2012, so any help is appreciated Smile
Do you see any output in the "Maxscript Listener"
or any error, or just nothing..?
Does the config load properly?

I haven't been through the material list to see if things are up to date, so feel free to post any mistakes or updates Smile

Cheers,

Stijn

No it's fine Virtox, I got it working okay in Max 2012 now (see below). It may have been because I ran 2012 after 2011.
I rebooted and it worked better.

It does however have an issue and the control remains open after Max 2012 shuts down that cause an error report to be sent to Autodesk.
No big deal really.

Hmm, strange..

Attached a version (b11) that hopefully fixes that behavior.

EDIT: For posterity sake this post will keep Beta11 attached.

Current latest is V1.1 which got a big overhaul, but it breaks compatibility with the old config.
There were just too many changes in materials and new parameters to keep it compatible.
