Speed Modeling Your Architectural Ideas in 3ds Max

by Micha Koren

In this 3ds Max tutorial, we'll go through the complete process of starting an architectural design project from the brief stage. You'll learn easy-to-apply speed modeling techniques so that your ideas can be modeled and communicated with the least amount of effort and time possible. Software required: 3ds Max 2012, V-Ray 2.0, AutoCAD 2014, Photoshop CS33ds Max 2012, V-Ray 2.0, AutoCAD 2014, Photoshop CS3.

What you'll learn

In this 3ds Max tutorial, we'll go through the complete process of starting an architectural design project from the brief stage. You'll learn easy-to-apply speed modeling techniques so that your ideas can be modeled and communicated with the least amount of effort and time possible. You'll be able to take any complex structure or architectural form and visualize it in minutes thanks to a different approach to modeling. In addition to greater speed, you'll also learn how to create sun simulations, 3D sections for your projects and final render that resembles a scaled architectural model. By the end of this 3ds Max training you'll have learned many techniques to boost your ability and speed in 3ds Max and let you hit those short deadlines with ease. Software required: 3ds Max 2012, V-Ray 2.0, AutoCAD 2014, Photoshop CS33ds Max 2012, V-Ray 2.0, AutoCAD 2014, Photoshop CS3.
