Mixed Modeling Techniques in 3ds Max

by Todd Daniele

In this 3ds Max tutorial, we will delve in such modeling techniques as spline modeling, polygonal modeling, and sub divisional surfaces. Through these techniques we are going to create a highly detailed steam locomotive model.

What you'll learn

In this 3ds Max tutorial we learn several modeling techniques in 3ds Max 2012. These videos will delve in such modeling techniques as spline modeling, polygonal modeling, and sub divisional surfaces. Through these techniques we are going to create a highly detailed steam locomotive model. We will also be exploring some of the graphite modeling tools and their functionality while modeling. All the while keeping an emphasis on the importance of scene management in a production environment.

About the author

At a young age Todd developed an affinity for drawing, but that doesn’t mean he was a prodigy, it just means he liked to play with crayons.
