max Commands in MAXScript

In addition to controlling modeling and animation, MAXScript scripts can invoke 3ds Max menu and toolbar commands. You do this using the "max" keyword.

For example:

max file open

max unhide all

max quick render

The keyword max is followed by one or more words that describe the command. The available commands can be displayed by using the "?" character in a partial max command.

For example:

max time ? -- shows all the time-related commands

max sel ? -- shows all the commands with ‘sel’ in them as a substring

max ? -- shows all the commands (there are a lot)

For a complete list of max commands, see the MAX Commands topic.
