Properties

There are no additional properties for Bone.

Notes

The Bone helper object is used by 3ds Max to represent the nodes in a Bones system. In 3ds Max 4 and higher, it is not possible to create a Bones system using IK controllers on the Bones' nodes.

You can create a hierarchy of Bone helper objects which use the standard PRS transform controller for each node.

For example:

b0 = bone pos:[x,y,z]

in b0 b1 = bone pos:[x1,y1,z1]

in b1 b2 = bone pos:[x2,y2,z2]

in b2 b3 = bone pos:[x3,y3,z3]

You can rearrange bone hierarchies using the parent property.

When a hierarchy of Bone helper objects is built, the showLinks and showLinksOnly properties are automatically set to true.
