RAND Worldwide have announced that their courseware division, ASCENT – Centre for Technical Knowledge has released the Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2009 Fundamentals training guide. ASCENT’s Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2009 Fundamentals training guide is based on the existing 3ds Max 2008 Fundamentals training guide. The guide is written by Mark Gerhard, who was a creator of multimedia products and is now an employee in RAND’s IMAGINiT Technologies division.
The training guide has been developed through Gerhard’s experience with 3ds Max products. Architectural, civil and mechanical engineers and product and interior design industries using Autodesk 3ds Max Design can benefit from the course’s visualisation content and its fundamental concepts and techniques to create advanced photo-realistic renderings and desktop animations.
The Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2009 Fundamentals training guide provides instructions for the interface, workflow, project configuration and 3D model creation from 2D objects. The guide’s content emphasises on using mental ray lighting, materials and rendering such as the new Revit compatible ProMaterials. The training guide covers spline mapping, mental ray proxies and lighting analysis.
According to RAND Worldwide, the Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2009 Fundamentals training guide can help CAD users, graphic designers, artists or engineers in applying the 3ds Max Design 2009 quickly and effectively.
