Course description

3ds Max for Revit Users

This course will prepare you for the world of 3D rendering and animation. You will use 3ds Max to create 3D solids and surfaces, customised lights and materials, and fully rendered animations. You will learn how to optimize and prepare 2D CAD drawings or 3D models (i.e., Revit) for export for 3ds MAX work as well as lighting and mapping techniques used with different models. If you want to go beyond Revit’s rendering and visualisation capabilities, our 3ds Max for Revit Users course is your opportunity.
