Modeling with 3ds max
Every 3d design is based on points, lines and surfaces. Once you understand the basics of 3d modeling you can work on your individual design strategy to make your ideas real. 3ds max is primarily a surface modeling tool based on polygon surfaces.
Visualisation with 3ds max
To creat photorealistic visualisations is easy. Difficult is to find a way of abstraction and the right answer for your design.
Parametric modeling with para 3d
PARA 3d is a scripted plug-in for 3DS MAX which enables users to create parametric digital models and animations using all excessive modeling features of 3DS MAX and additional controllers available in the plug-in.
