Design a Day

Tested in LScript v2.6.1 for Lightwave 7.5 (Intel)

Scripts should run on Mac, unless otherwise noted. However, they have not been tested by me, so use at your own risk. If anyone has tried these scripts on the Mac, with success, drop me a line and I’ll make a note of it.

Of course, the standard Chrome Cow Terms of Service apply.



SHM STL Tools

SHM STL Tools v1.12 Update 03/07

Now works in LW 9.x. Imports and exports objects in the STL format for 3D Stereo Lithography (3D Printing). The Exporter cleans-up the object and exports ASCII or Binary STLs.
The Importer reads ASCII and Binary STLs. [ Link ]


ArcView Shape Reader

SHM ArcView Importer v0.25

Calling all LScripters! I don’t have time to finish this Script, but it is well on its way to being very cool. It can currently read and display ArcView Shape files, and load the associated database file. It has a partial interface for looking at the database.

I started it to help my friend Dave with his Atlas of US Presidential Elections.

PDB Reader

PDB Reader v2.85

Create molecular models in Lightwave from freely available PDB files. Create space-filling, ball-and-stick, hypervoxel or text models. Well featured, with much control over the look. This supercedes the version that ships with LW 7+. [ Link ]


gVim Support

gVim Support Files

Custom color and syntax highlighting to support LScript in gVim, a great open-source text editor. v1.00 supports the commands and data members as listed in the LScript User Reference PDF. [ Link ]


SHM Help File Editor

SHM Help File Editor

A tool for LScript developers who want to add Help Files to their scripts. It’s an editor with a simple mark-up language that lets you quickly develop help files with Titles, Subtitles, Highlights, Separators and imbedded TGA images. All colors are user definable. Creates a commented LScript ready for integration with your own plugins. It has a help file, which is its own example of a help file in a tabbed requestor. [ Link ]


Sean's Dial Ticks v2.03

Sean’s Dial Ticks v2.04

Create watch and clock faces, compasses and other dial-based readouts and instrumentality in Modeler. Easily create set dressing for technical environents. Also functions as an aligned radial array. Follow the link for new features. [ Link ]


SHM DeRez

SHM DeRez

For the post-modern modeler, a deconstruction tool. Its basic function is to take a polygonal selection, and replace each polygon with its 2D outline in 2-point polys. In addition, it can add extra detail, emulate damage by dropping out 2-point polys, by crumpling the selected grid and by leaving random polygons unprocessed.

SHM Plane to Sphere v2.0

SHM Plane to Sphere v2.0

Another old favorite resurrected. Take any semi-planar, well-subdivided object, and wrap it into a sphere. Sphere maintains point order, and is suitable for morphing. Tested in LScript 2.6, but should work back to 2.0 or earlier.

 SHM Plane to Sphere v2.0


SHM PolyChain

SHM PolyChain

Select a series of points. Run script (works best assigned to a hotkey). A series of two-point polys are created between points, in the order you selected them. Script unselects points afterwards, to allow for additional rapid selection.

SHM Cutter v2.01

SHM Cutter v2.01

A bloke in Australia asked me about this one recently, so I dusted it off and put a bit of polish on it. SHM Cutter slices your object in a user defined number of slices across any major axis. You can also enter an angle by which to offset the cuts.

SHM Alphabetize Additional

SHM Alphabetize Additional

[LW 7.x Only!]

The Construct>Additional menu in Lightwave Modeler is the dumping ground for every plugin under the sun, and they just get tacked to the end of the list as you add them. Soon, it’s a real chore to find what you’re looking for. Running SHM Alphabetize Additional will sort them into alphabetical order. Your original config file is backed up, and the new one can be imported through Modeler>Preferences> Import Preference File. LW 7.x Only!
