Civil 3D / 3D Max

OVERVIEW

In this course, students learn how to use 3D Studio max to model, apply material, add lights and cameras, render still images and animate architectural or interior scenes. Scenes could be imported from AutoCAD as 3D or as 2D and fully modeled in Max.

Although this course is titled for architects and interior designers, it actually provides the fundamental knowledge for anyone who wishes to use 3DS Max. The end of the course focuses on the architect and interior aspect of the software.
