I’ve developed this little tool some years ago (actually, I can’t remember when exactly) as an in-house solution for reusing assets which we need once in a while. It saves a maxfile containting the model, does a thumbnail viewport snapshot and collects all used maps etc. It’s not built for tons of Assets, so it’s more intended for small to medium scale, but the limiting factor is mostly the amount of jpgs it has to load over the network (so it’s about bandwidth 😉 ). It’s currently not in a state to share it – there are some changes needed to make it adapt to different pipelines – but there is a chance that I’ll do that in the future if people are interested.
