Shred: manage code snippets in 3dsMax

Shred helps you manage your clever snippets of maxscript code in 3dsMax. If you’re anything like me and forget what code you put where this script might be something for you.

Reuse, rinse, repeat

Use shred to store and tag functions or algorithms. This makes it easy to retrieve them later on when you need them. Shred also allows you to gradually improve your snippets. It’s a great way to gradually improve common pieces of code.
