When working in 3ds Max, existing Layers disappear and pre-existing objects can’t be added to a New Layer in the Scene Explorer ( e.g. meshes, nodes, etc.). Only new objects can be added to a newly-created layer.


Use the attached MAXScript on startup to resolve the issue:

  1. Ensure 3ds Max is closed.
  2. Download the attached MAXScript file:
  3. Place the MAXScript file in the 3ds Max startup folder:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max <version>\scripts\Startup

4. Restart 3ds Max.
