Max 3D - Product Review
'Surf-iT' announcement and comparison
MAX 3D gives a sneak peak and technical look at Surf-iT's superior patch surfacing technology.
MAX 3D is an extensive and up to date web resource for news on top 3ds max tools and extensions.

Surf-iTTM is an advanced 3D modeling solution for Discreet’s (Autodesk) 3D Studio MAX® & 3D Studio VIZ®.

The Surf-iT modeling kit provides unprecedented speed and quality in parametric 3D Spline creation, editing, and surfacing. The product is designed as an enhanced modular system of tools, enabling the quickest modeling workflow available to 3D Studio MAX and VIZ.

Surf-iT also breaks new ground as the premiere and only 3D Studio MAX plug-in to incorporate instant creation of parametric 3D Spline objects, called S-ObjectsTM, and each revision of Surf-iT builds on these new Spline object creation and editing tools.
Artists can instantly create solid forms and extrude cavities or protrusions - all at the Spline level! This gives maximum flexibility, as artists and animators will never need to commit to 'critical' surface decisions again (decisons that are otherwise imposed on the user in 3D Patch or NURBS modeling solutions). Instead, surfacing is automatic, multi-level, and can be viewed simultaneously during Spline operations using Surf-iT Macros.

At the core, Surf-iT's proprietary surfacing technology uniquely optimizes the surface for a desirable geometry construction and efficient polygon count, while automatically detecting and highlighting any user anomalies (possibilities for user-defined improvements).

Most importantly, Surf-iT's geometry and surface output is fully compatible with 3D Studio MAX’s native object classes, so that game developers leveraging 3D Studio MAX’s Open Source initiative can integrate Surf-iT created content in their game engines without any sacrifices or additional research. Game developers, film and entertainment production teams can easily incorporate Surf-iT to enhance their production workflow, because Surf-iT builds on the familiar benefits of the 3D Studio MAX and VIZ interface, and then further expands the technology with convenient, time-saving algorithms, operations and tools.

Scribe-iTTM  for Discreet’s (Autodesk) 3D Studio MAX® & 3D Studio VIZ® is the most powerful digitizing and 3D modeling system designed for 3D digitizers and CMM devices such as Faro Arm and MicroScribe 3D digitizers.

Quickly build accurate 3D computer models from physical objects with Scribe-iT’s versatile feature set by simply placing the digitizer probe on physical surfaces and automatically inputting the datasets. Scribe-iT provides flexible Spline creation tools, controllable NURBS conversion, Mesh creation, and unique Mesh Strips creation to assist 3D artists, animators, engineers and designers alike. Additionally, Scribe-iT incorporates the robust Surf-iT Spline modeling kit, giving 3D Studio MAX and VIZ users the fastest Spline surfacing capabilities, exceptionally suited for speed and optimization in surfacing large digitized datasets. One of Scribe-iT’s most significant highlights is the ability to convert modified digitized objects back to the creation state for appending data. This means any MAX modifiers you use can become part of the digitizing process.

Scribe-iT is also the first commercial software solution to provide animation support for the full line of MicroScribe desktop digitizers. Scribe-iT’s amazing 3D camera tool lets you instantly manipulate 3D cameras to interactively view and animate your digitized objects using the MicroScribe armature - fantastic for visualization and flythoughs! You can even interact to animate linked scene objects using a variety of controllers. A movement scale factor lets the MicroScribe transform objects up to thousands of feet per inch.

Integrating camera manipulation, animation, the Surf-iT modeling kit and just about any MAX modifier into the real-time digitizing process, Scribe-iT takes 3D digitizing to the highest level, making it the most outstanding digitizing software commercially available.

IMPORTANT:   Please note that a proper Scribe-iT evaluation requires that you have access to a supported device such as MicroScribe CMM or other supported digitizers. Please G3D Systems Representative to request MicroScribe digitizer product and evaluation information.

MicroScribe-MAX is the original first ever dedicated digitizing software and integration plugin for 3D digitizers and CMMs like the ">MicroScribe and best-selling 3D modeling & animation software 3D Studio MAX® (Autodesk). MicroScribe-MAX and its successor Scribe-iT has been a highly acclaimed software solution for several years, from which many of its heralded features have been incorporated and enhanced in GHOST 3D's Scribe-iT advanced desktop digitizing solution. Microscribe-MAX was developed by GHOST 3D, LLC and exclusively distributed by Immersion Corporation until GHOST 3D, LLC released Scribe-iT and became the OEM integrator and global distributor for Scribe-iT/Microscribe Solutions and Power Digitizer Pack Solutions. Now GHOST 3D, LLC is the primary supplier for Microscribe integration with 3ds max, Autodesk VIZ, and others.

MicroScribe-MAX is Scribe-iT's predecessor, distributed exclusively by Immersion Corporation as a supporting digitizing solution for end-users of older versions of 3D Studio MAX (Release 1 through Release 2.5).

For more information on MicroScribe-MAX and upgrades to Scribe-iT, please contact a G3D Systems representative for MicroScribe-MAX Upgrades
ResErect™ is a unique plugin for 3ds max™ and Autodesk VIZ®, providing 3D artists with a parametric reverse engineering system. ResErect converts virtually any object type (mesh, patch, spline) into optimized splines whilst preserving history and pre-existing sub-object animation! Also provides textured import of Animation Master patches (AV2) into MAX and VIZ.
