Description

Description

Autodesk design software provides great tools for building complex designs ranging from mechanical to civil, and 3ds Max Design software is a great tool for generating visually stunning rendered animations. This roundtable session addresses topics related to the use of 3ds Max Design for rendering and animation of CAD models from other Autodesk design software. We discuss importing and linking models from software such as Revit® and Inventor® software, and the use of Civil View for visualizing AutoCAD® Civil 3D® geometry. We examine strategies for working efficiently within 3ds Max, the animation of specific moveable parts, and the tools that are available for editing keyframes and tweaking the overall look and timing of the animation. To wrap up the discussion, we will review the multiple rendering options that are available to users in 3ds Max Design and discuss which option can be best suited for a particular task.

Target Audience

Target Audience

3ds Max Design users who work with multiple Autodesk programs for animation and rendering within 3ds Max Design and any Autodesk Premium suite users who have access to 3ds Max Design
