Click on the grid to open the geometry. After that, click twice to create the starting point where the ivy grows. You will see a green point. You can change the parameters as you like. Then click Grow (Fig.09).

You can stop the ivy growing by clicking on the grow button again. If you want to try another setup then click twice on the grid to create another seed (Fig.10).

If you like it, click Birth to see the final result. It will activate all the geometry (Fig.11).

Export the final result to 3ds Max and don't worry because it will only export the ivy mesh. Import as an OBJ in Max and it will look like this (Fig.12).

Hi Efendy and sorry for the delay. Create a copy of your entire scene and attach it to create a single object. In export options, if you dont change the mesh into tris it will be flipped in ivy generator so change quads to tris. Cheers. My new homepage: http://www.3dluigi.blogspot.com

I have questions, how do you attach it in a single mesh when we're going to export the torus and the plane become OBJ? When I import the OBJ file to the ivy generator, my view of my 3d object is opposite from my 3d max view.. Sorry, I'm not really good at English..

This used to be the way that I did it for a couple of years. I could never find the 64-bit version as none of my machines now run on 32. The easiest method now is the guruware ivy plugin that grows straight inside max! You can animate and have tons of control, and its free too. Here is the link: http://www.guruware.at/main/ivy/index.html dl at bottom of page. :D
