3D Studio Max Course
Welcome to the Introduction to 3D Studio Max Course Page.
Here you will find several tutorials and materials covering the basics of 3D Studio Max. All material can be downloaded in Microsoft Word document format in addition to .max files (for tutorials). These materials were created for a course of the same name currently being delivered in the Ministry of Education’s Teacher Training Centre (by yours truly). I hope that you all find the material helpful and useful.
