Ring set tutotrial pictureTo create smooth and perfect looking objects in 3ds Max is one of the points of this tutorial . We will focus on creating three different types of rings on which we will demonstrate advanced poly modeling  with respect on the geometry which will allow us to create smooth and clean models without any crack in the geometry. The details of the rings we create by using functions which will allow us to make nice and smooth details on our model and his accessories.

After we will create a basic scene, materials in Mental Ray and lighting which we will use by the final render. At final we will get in touch with some post production Photoshop.  A quick gallery from the tutorial, download links and the tutorial you can find at the bottom of this article.
