Free Maxscript - CoLinear Vertex Cleaner
Description:Sometimes your model is loaded with vertices located along straight edges where they are not needed. They create unnecessary polygons and make your model hard to work with. Sometimes this is a result of a boolean operation or you may find this with imported geometry.
CoLinear Vertex Cleaner is a free Maxscript that will remove all these vertices in one click. Additionally, it comes with one optional parameter, Angle Threshold. This allows for a "margin of error" where if the edge is not perfectly straight (but close to it), the script will remove those vertices anyway. The lower the value, the straighter the edge has to be. If you want to clean up an edge that is not perfectly straight, you can increase the value up to 5 degrees.
The best way to install the script is to go to the MaxScript menu (within 3dsMax) and choose "Run Script" and point it to the .mzp file.
