Creating 3D visualizations using AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, Civil View, and Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software is not just for roadways. You can take full advantage of Civil View to transfer Civil 3D content straight into 3ds Max Design and create a compelling 3D visualization that tells the story of the commercial project. Together we will go through the workflow for bringing together not only Civil 3D data but also Autodesk® Revit® software data to create rendered still shots and video flyovers of the proposed project. This class will definitely open your eyes to new possibilities for company presentations. Don't miss it!

Key Learnings

  • Explain the workflow for importing Revit data
  • Quickly add trees, cars, and othe objects to point group data from Civil 3D
  • Describe the workflow of taking commercial site plan data from Civil 3D to 3ds Max Design
  • Apply proper materials to surfaces in 3ds Max Design
