What is 3DS Max Design - Every Design has a Story

Engineers, Product Designers, Architects and marketing communications professionals will want to explore this latest release of the comprehensive animation, 3D modeling, and 3D rendering software.


The Power to Bring Your Designs to Life


With Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software, you can better communicate your designs and create strong narratives that deliver a unique emotional experience. Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software enables architects, designers, and visual artists to clearly convey design intent using a narrative story line and environmental context that resonates with audiences, and communicates important design information. 3ds Max Design helps your audience gain a deep understanding of how projects look and work before they are built.

Rendering Revolution


When every pixel matters, professionals turn to the powerful tools in 3ds Max Design for lighting, shading, materials, and rendering. Whether you’re developing visuals for architecture, transportation, machinery, or consumer products, 3ds Max Design helps you produce virtual photography and virtual cinematography that is nearly indistinguishable from reality. 3ds Max Design provides a range of rendering options to help you create stunning images faster. The integrated mental ray® photorealistic raytracer has a large library of architectural materials. Using iray® “point-and-shoot” rendering with new ActiveShade support, it’s never been easier to quickly create great-looking imagery. The Quicksilver GPU renderer provides a fast and simple solution for test-rendering and nonphotorealistic (NPR) effects. Nitrous technology allows you to preview renderings directly in the viewport. Also available is the time-tested Scanline, or choose from an increasing number of third-party rendering plug-ins.


3DS Max for Design Visualisation


3ds Max Design software helps you expand the visual context of your design concepts for more effective design validation and visual communication. It offers digital continuity with AutoCAD®- and Revit®-based products for design visualization workflow. With 3ds Max Design animation and visual effects software, you can:

  • Explore design concepts—Create unique organic forms. Generate and control architectural forms procedurally with scripts, and explore your concept’s impact early in the design process.

  • Validate design concepts—Put your design in context. Create animated walk-throughs, line-of-site studies, and physically-accurate daylight analysis, so you and your clients can better understand how the design functions.

  • Communicate design concepts—Help customers make crucial decisions during design reviews and gain valuable buy-in at every stage. Create emotionally engaging narratives to communicate information quickly, compellingly, and persuasively.
