Generally, the Design Automation API enables you to integrate an automated batch processor into a pipeline to process files in the cloud. In the Design Automation context, Revit software, AutoCAD software, and Inventor software generally work with native file formats; but in the case of 3ds Max software, the list of file formats that we can import and work with is more extensive. This traditional strength of 3ds Max—of importing and working with a huge number of file formats—opens the way for multiple workflows, including visualization. In this class, we will present an overview of some possible Design Automation rendering workflows, as well as discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each workflow. We will explore the benefits with a pros-and-cons approach, including costs (time and credits), which will help you decide the ultimate approach and benefits.
