Course Overview:

Autodesk’s premier design visualization platform, Autodesk 3DS Max offers world-class state-of-the-art technology for creating photo-realistic “still” renderings and desktop animations.  While it includes modeling tools for 2D and 3D you can also work with geometry imported from many other applications.  This course provides a thorough introduction to Autodesk 3DS Max that will help you make the most of this sophisticated application, as well as broaden the horizons of existing, self-taught users.  The topics and practices in this fast-paced, intensive course are geared toward real-world task encountered primarily by professionals in the Architectural, Interior Design, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Product Design industries.
