In Volume 2 of the Quick Start to Modeling in 3ds Max, we'll build on the concepts covered in volume 1. We'll start by talking about polygon modeling, also known as edge modeling techniques. We'll discuss how using this technique will allow us to have more control over the topology and how to get the exact details we want out of our models. We'll also cover techniques that will allow us to begin saving time in our modeling. We'll find that using this technique can propose some challenges when trying to model using quads exclusively, and we'll learn many methods for overcoming those challenges. In the end, we'll have another prop to add to our narrative scene. These courses are designed to be taken in sequence, so we really encourage you to start with Volume 1 before continuing with this section. We also encourage you to take advantage of the assignments that follow each volume. These assignments will allow you to take what you've learned and apply those tools and techniques to your own projects. Learn more about the Quick Start to Modeling in 3ds Max.
Joshua is a devoted games author at Pluralsight. For years Joshua was a key author behind Digital-Tutors' (now a Pluralsight company) popular game engine training. As a kid, he had a passion for playing video games, which eventually developed into a fascination with the process of game creation. The question of "How'd they do that?" led Joshua on a quest to learn to make these games himself. Ever since then, Joshua has devoted his life to creating games, as well as teaching others to build their own fantastic video games.
