Installing a script in 3ds Max is pretty easy when using an mzp-installer. This installer bundles all scripts, artwork and libraries in a single file and extracts them to the correct locations. Just drag the mzp-file onto one of your viewports in 3ds Max and the script installs itself.
Most scripts I release use this installer. I usually add a small dialog which allows you to uninstall the script and inspect which files actually are being copied before you commit.
Installing takes just a few steps
- Drag the mzp-file onto a viewport
- An installer dialog pops up. Take note of the category the script is in. It’s “Amazing scripts” in this case
- Press “Install” in the installer dialog which pops up
- The script is installed. Once done, a popup tells you how to access the script from a toolbar
- To add the script to a toolbar, go to the Menu > Customize > Customize user interface…
- Go to the “Toolbars” tab and pick the category the script is in
- Drag the script onto a toolbar and you’re done!
