• This early installation for Autodesk 3D Studio Max 2013 is for invited preAlpha testers only.
• A more stable alpha release will become available to the general population by November 9, 2012 followed by a stable beta release.
• Do not share the link or files with anyone.
• If you know someone who would like to test this early version, please have them contact us to become an official preAlpha tester, we will sign them up right away.
uPy (ubiquitous Python API) enables ePMV and autoPack to work in Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, Blender and DejaVu by writing only one plugin instead of >5.
ePMV (embedded Python Molecular Viewer) provides all of the capabilities of molecular graphics and molecular mechanics software directly in your 3ds Max GUI.
autoPack positions 3D geometries into, onto, and around volumes with minimal to zero overlap. autoPack mixes several packing approaches and procedural growth algorithms. autoPack can thus place objects with forces and constraints to allow a high degree of control ranging from completely random distributions to highly ordered structures.
cellPack is a specialization of autoPack that generates probabilistic 3D models of large sections of cells that can contain dozens to trillions+ of molecules. It can position these molecules to recapitulate observed data where available and can further optimize the molecular interactions on a local level as each molecule is placed into a mesoscale model.
If you have experience with 3D software on a Windows operating system, especially with 3ds Max, this entire installation should take less than 10 minutes. Afterwards we will ask you to fill out the user experience form to help us improve the process and then we will connect you with autoPack and ePMV tutorials to work on improving the user experience and to teach you the software.
