Description

In this course we will start to create a very high quality and realistic 3D model from zero with 3ds max. we will start with a simple box and little by little we will improve it to get our final result . In each lesson i will explain some tools which are useful for 3d modeling and also we will continue with practicing on our model . We will cover most of the different ways  which we can use to create a 3d model so by the end of the course you will be able to create almost any 3d model you can imagine . I have used these techniques in many different projects over the past several years . also i will teach you how you have to think to be able to create the best quality model and also i will explain about different mistakes you may make while working as 3d designer . so hopefully by the end of this course you will be able to find projects for 3d modeling and make money .

Understanding the Model :

In thins lesson we are going to learn more about what we have to do before we start working and creating the 3D  model . This is one of the most important steps which we need to do before we start the project . So let's get started .

Preview 13:41

Set up images :

In this lesson we will learn more about importing images and blueprints which we need to create our model into the software and set them up the way which all of them work together proportionally . So let's get started .

Preview 10:52

Editable Poly and Rescaling :

In this lesson we start the very foundation of our model and we will spend some time on learning more about editable poly which is one the most important ways to create a 3d model in 3ds max . As much as you know more and you have more control over editable poly you can be able to create more high quality items..

03- Editable Poly and Rescaling

06- Attach and detach
11:07

Target weld :

During this lesson we will learn more about how we can connect 2 different point or 2 different line into one and to do that we have to use a tool named "Target Weld" . So let's find out more about it inside the lesson .

07- Target Weld
12:30

Quick slice :

Another great tool which we can use it on polygons and create a cut . It is very useful while we can''t use connect but it is only available  while polygons are active . so let's get to it .

08- Quick Slice
14:55

LIne :

In this lesson we will learn more about using line in our modeling . There are several ways that we can use line which here we only focus on one of them which is the combination of line and extrude . This way everything you draw as a line it will get a mass after applying extrude in the modifier list . so let's get started .

09- Line
17:07

Boolean  :

In this lesson we will learn more about a tool which we can call it as subtraction of 3d objects . Which this tool we can create some difficult shapes a lot faster by just subtracting one object from another . To learn more about it check out the lesson .

I'm Pouya and i spend almost all my life working hard and learning new things to bring myself closer to my goals . But success doesn't come easy , in fact if it was easy everybody was successful right now . I can say i'm on the right path . Anyway let's get to my biography .

I born on October 1990 and i lived with my family until i became 17 . during these years i have started to learn and practice a lot on 3d design for many years . When ever i wanted to rest i was making something 3d . Our family business is about meat production and it is very successful . After i became 17 years old i traveled to another country to continue my study in architecture . Again while i was studding architecture i was also interested in other fields like several musical instrument and composing music . I released my first musical album on December 2010 . 

After i graduated from university i imminently found job as 3d designer in an American company , actually it's better to say they found me . before my graduation i was working on several 3d projects and that company saw my work and they where very interested in working with me . They were a mobile game company and for the first time i was able to see what programmers do actually . This field attracted me a lot and i started  my own company with my brother which name was " Dot Games " we started creating simple games but i saw something was missing there and that was business knowledge . So i started to look for answers to improve our work and our sales and finally i met my first mentor and a new chapter in my life opened . 

i was learning from my mentor almost around 2 years , i have learned a lot and what ever he thought me in business and life changed everything for me and our company . our sales increased to a whole new level . The quality of my life changed . Over all these years i practiced a lot to be a better designer , programmer and entrepreneur . The reason i joined Udemy was that i wanted to share all these knowledge with people who really need it . I didn't find all these knowledge and experience easy and it was so hard for me to get here , but i want to help all the people out there who want to change their lives , to become successful at their business .
