Scripted Plug-ins Package for 3ds Max.


From here you could download only NURBS Elliptic Arc 1.4!

For test only! This version contains a lot of bugs!

To try the NEW STABLE VERSION (v2.0) of these plug-ins (which are included in the plug-ins package: Quadratic Primitives -NURBS v2.0), please click here!


NURBS Conical Arcs contains three plugins for easy and flexible modeling of the quadratic curves (that could be presented by one equation), which are also known as conic sections (conics).

Those quadratic curves are:

        • Ellipse;
        • Parabola;
        • Hyperbola.

Conical arcs

There is an aspiration for opening up new and more efficient graphic tools for expanding the functionality of 3ds Max. Models of real objects (2D and 3D objects, trajectories, phenomenon, etc.) should be designed correctly and to be useful.

Very often trajectories of velocity, borders of real objects, forms and etc., are quadratic curves (conic sections = conics - the curve of intersection of a plane with the surface of a regular cone). The optical properties of the conics are well known as well. So, those curves are very important to be represented in every graphics system as design tools. That is why I developed methods allowing interactive modeling of elliptic arcs, parabolic arcs and hyperbolic arcs conical arcs.

The most popular mathematical model in the graphics systems for representing and designing curves is NURBS. NURBS curves are parametric, which is a good advantage for computer realization. That is why my wish is to represent the arcs by NURBS curves.

 [If you are interested in modeling with the quadratic surfaces as well, in the subsection Surfaces you will find plugin-scripts package for representing all nine quadratic surfaces by NURBS NURBS Quadratic Surfaces Plugin-scripts Package v1.2 for 3ds Max.]
