Default picture Basic tutorial 2This video tutorial  is mainly focused about modeling  techniques in 3ds Max and workflow functions. I will try to show you some functions and primitives with which you can start to plan and do your model, explain workflow in 3ds Max and show some tools which you can use for this. I will show hot to model a bulb using a reference, the bulb would be modeled with two different techniques on which you will see the differences in them and also the advantage of each of them, than we will modify one of the bulbs and recreate with other functions. At the end I will do a clay render with smooth and wire surface.
