Free Up Memory in 3dsmax | Tom Isaksen


Hi all, we are happy to share with you the free script from Tom Isaksen

If your Max scene is getting sluggish or you run out of memory when you try to render. There are a few script functions that might help you out.

  • gc() Garbage Collection.
  • freescenebitmaps() Cleans up in texture memory.
  • clearUndoBuffer() Removes your Undo’s

Just type the one you want in the lower left text field in max and press return.

Note: If you have windows task manager open and monitoring 3ds Max memory use, you can see the result straight away.

And that is pretty much it… if you want to go further and make the functions more accessible read below on how to make it into a script that you can run directly from a button on your Toolbar.
