    Autodesk, Inc., design software provides great tools for building complex designs that range from mechanical to civil, and 3ds Max Design software is a great tool for generating visually striking rendered animations. This round table will discuss topics related to the use of 3ds Max Design software for the rendering and animation of CAD models from other Autodesk design software systems. We will discuss importing and linking models from programs like Revit software and Inventor software, and we'll cover the use of the Civil View feature set for visualizing AutoCAD Civil 3D software geometry. We will examine strategies for working efficiently within 3ds Max software, and we'll look at the animation of specific moveable parts. We'll also discuss the tools that are available for editing keyframes and tweaking the overall look and timing of the animation. To wrap up the discussion, we will review the multiple rendering options available in 3ds Max Design software and discuss which option can be best suited for which particular task.
