3Ds MA Architecture & Interior Design X Course

Course Mentor: ESI

Course Overview

3Ds MAX Architecture & Interior Design is a modeling program, published by Autodesk. The program provides the necessary techniques for modeling and animating three-dimensional designs that can be created in the program, such as: two- and three-dimensional engineering designs, lighting, cameras, aids, ambient effects, and so forth.

Target Audience

  • Architects and building designers.
  • People who need to develop high quality.
  • The accuracy of architectural designs.

Course Objectives

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