This parametric selection modifier for 3ds Max 2015+ allows you to select faces on a mesh without regard to topology changes similar to a Vol. Select Modifier.

 Specific attributes by which you can select faces are:

  • Selected Faces
  • Selected Vertices
  • Smoothing Groups (with Options)
  • Material IDs (with Options)
  • Face IDs
  • Random Faces
  • Every Nth Face
  • Element IDs
  • Random Elements
  • Every Nth Element

Note: For 3ds Max 2016, you may need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) from the Microsoft website if it is not already installed.

Known Issues:

  • Parameters cannot be animated in Version 1.0. 
  • Explicit Normals may not appear correctly at the modifier level but the normals are not lost. To see in viewport, add an Edit Normals modifier above the Select Faces modifier.
  • In 3ds Max 2017+ an object using this modifier is no longer selectable in the viewports. Workarounds include selecting via the Scene Explorer or to add a Vol. Select above the Select Faces modifier. I am looking into fixing this issue.
