I bought 3DS Max in May last year and did training in Brisbane with Karelcad for 4 days but the trainer had no idea about doing anything for houses till the last hour of the last day. This has left me totally frustrated since and though I've played with the update to 3DS Max Design 2009 I still haven't produced much from it. Compared to REVIT it is a total pain to do even the simplest things. I know it should be better at rendering and animation than REVIT so I'm going to give it one more go as I've already spent thousands on the software and training anyway. What I'd like to know is if anyone can recommend anyone who does short (1-3 days) training courses in Brisbane. The other thing that annoys me is that all the entourage, trees, plants, etc... in REVIT don't come into 3DS Max even when importing it as a .fbx file. Can anyone in Brisbane put me onto a seller of these components I can use in 3DS Max. I'm up in Charters Towers 1 1/2 hours west of Townsville but am happy fly to Brisbane if I can get some decent training this time and not waste thousands of dollars to learn nothing like before.

sorry i have no answer to your question

there are some ready to use trees already in 3ds max, but if your willing to pay for pre-make items maybe look at Turbo Squid tenticles, but i have never used it, poor student that i am :-(

i was wondering how much they could teach you in 4 days? the tutorials that come with the program, at least with 3ds max, i have no idea about "Design", they would take longer to do then 4 days. it's my holidays at the moment (it's also raining) and i am tring to learn 3ds max myself looking for all the youtube videos, the AutoDesk "crash course" they have on their site plus the included tutorials...

to me 3ds looks to be a bbiiiigggggg program. for Architectural use is it just the basic 3ds max skills with in depth rendering/lighting knowledge (maybe animation if you want to show off :-) ) that is needed?

homebrew  * who is looking forward to making his first animation*

Glenn, it is quite a while since you posted this but i have found in the past Karel Kad to be not very good except taking your money. I use the Cadgoup in Sydney now & went to one of their Revit training sessions there a few months ago & found it to be exellent. I went to an upgrade course (ACA) with Karel Kad a few years ago to find that the the training material (book) was the version I was upgrading from, the other people in the class were doing totally different learning classes. To top all that up I had drive 4 hrs each way to Melbourne to get to the class so the one day class was a waste of time & it cost me a day & a half of time plus the coast of travel. I aliken Karel Kad to the old KKK of the deep south of USA, they are one eyed to  the great $$$$$$, & forget about the results particularly the sole operator.


I will be scoring goals soon, I'm in the back line at the moment!

Cheers Dermot

Personally when I tried 3ds Max I found it a very difficult beast indeed.  I learnt the vray plugin as that seemed to be a little easier to learn than the Metal Ray version.  However, now Mental Ray is in Revit with a vastly simplified interface I'm much happier to avoid it all together.

Sorry, this isn't answering your question but I'm not aware of any short courses in 3Ds Max.  I know there are Tafe courses in Brisbane.
