    SP2 for 3dsMax2016 loses Arch&Design Materials - fix available

    I've been puzzled that my linked Revit 2016 models into 3dsMax2016 could no longer have Arch&Design glass, or any other A&D material swapped in for Revit glass, or other material.

    In fact the A&D materials would not appear on objects created from scratch in 3dsMax.

    After much fruitless reinstalling and investigating paths (which was educational, if frustrating) this thread in the Area forum (where I guess I should have headed straight away ) points the finger at SP2 for 3dsMax 2016 - with or without the extension pack.

    There is a script provided which fixes the problem (but read the thread if you are affected as version 3 is the one you want, down the list of posts):

    Sorry, I'm behind the times - SP3 is out and fixes the Arch&Design Materials problem :

    https://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppo...-3.html?v=2016

    /later:
    the kind person who posted the script fix tells me that the v3 script checks for SP3 installed and notifies the user that it is not needed if SP3 already installed.

    Cool

    Even after the 3 SP's and 2 Ext.Packs I still can not get Revit 2016 and Max 2016 to talk to each other. This worked perfectly in 2014 and 2015, now it's broke beyond repair? Seems ridiculous.
