OSC connection with Max/Msp/Jitter
I am trying to use the OSC in Nodebox 3 and connect with Max/Msp/Jitter to send live signals back and forth between the two programs, but the page that describes the method (http://nodebox.net/code/index.php/OSC) doesn't seem to be telling enough to get my project going. Could you tell me more detailed instructions on this ? Thank you.

The documentation page you mentioned is for NodeBox 1, and so wouldn't be useful for NodeBox 3.
For NodeBox 3, the OSC nodes are labelled "experimental": that means they lack documentation and can change.
Here's a short tutorial on how to listen to events FROM Max MSP:
I've included an example that uses PD to send OSC events (I don't have Max MSP).

Thank you so much for your help, I am really enjoying this tool a lot.
I have tried what you suggested for connecting nodebox and max msp, and here I am attaching what I have so far. So, I followed your instruction and created my max patch using the "udpsend" node, (it seems like it's working with vvvv here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NR0F3uCzTmo) and also set up my node in nodebox. but, I don't see they are connected yet, so here I am asking you some more questions. ; )
what I am not sure about current state is
whether the address prefix in the receive_osc node should reference the folder structure of the max map file, like the way I have right now.
also what kind of data the arguments in the receive_osc node can have when receiving numbers from max msp. I know you had set up size, hue and rotation in your example file, but I am not sure how these can be received from max msp.
maybe this has something to do with the PD file that you sent me? I have no idea what to do with it except that knowing that is a pure data file.
Thank you in advance, I look forward to hearing from you.

Is it possible to send OSC from Nodebox3 to PD ??

Currently, sending OSC data works, but is very hacky. The problem is that NodeBox only calculates the rendered node and its dependencies. This means that if you have some node in your network sending OSC events, and it is not the rendered node, it won't work.
A trick is to combine your output with the "send osc" node. This way you can send message and have NodeBox show output at the same time.
Again, this is a hack. We're thinking on how we can make this work correctly. We reserve the right to change the way sending and receiving works: that's why the nodes are labelled "experimental".
