3ds Max 2008 Fundamentals
AutoCAD Training Overview

Autodesk 3ds Max is one of Autodesk’s design visualization platforms. It offers state-of-the-art technology for creating photo-realistic “still” renderings and desktop animations. While it includes its own tools for 2D and 3D modeling, Autodesk 3ds Max can also work with geometry imported from many other applications.

Autodesk 3ds Max is a robust and powerful program that can be challenging to learn. This updated training guide is ideal for Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2008 users in the architectural, civil and mechanical engineering, and product and interior design industries. Significant emphasis on the mental ray renderer has been included with this update.
