3ds Max Design is intended for architecture and visualization customers, the tutorials and movies that are
included show typical applications and scenarios for these customers.
Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design 2011 software includes over 15 fixes for issues which help improve performance and responsiveness while particularly addressing areas such as Camera Tracker, Materials, Quicksilver, and Graphite Modeling Tools.
Autodesk 3ds Max Design provides a comprehensive, integrated rendering, 3D modeling, and animation software solution for architects, designers, civil engineers, and visualization specialists to help tell the story behind their designs.
* Rapid iteration of designs—Interoperability with AutoCAD®, Revit®, and Autodesk® Inventor® software enables you to take advantage of nondestructive workflows when upstream changes occur. The software also supports at least 30 2D and 3D data formats.
* Accurate daylight analysis—3ds Max Design is one of the tools validated by the CNRC for the simulation and analysis of indirect and daylight effects. In addition, direct lighting can be explored in real time in the viewport.
* High-impact visuals and animations—Technology proven in the entertainment industry enables designers and visualization specialists to create highly realistic or stylized looks at faster speeds with unlimited batch mental ray rendering, interactive GPU hardware rendering with Quicksilver, and the NVIDIA® iray® renderer.
