It’s been a while since I last shared some free 3Ds Max modeling tutorials. Well, that’s about to change!
I have re-discovered some older videos I’ve filmed and haven’t had a chance to add the subtitles. Since it looks like I will not have enough time to do that any time soon, I’ve decided to share them “as-is”. No speeding up, no commentary, same as watching me work over the shoulder. I hope these videos will still be useful to some of you!
This week’s 3ds max tutorial – a round neoclassical dining table with fluted legs. Might look pretty simple at the first glance, but there are a couple of tricks you might find useful.
For example… you can easily make the fluting on the legs by using boolean tools and subtracting some arrayed capsule primitives from the main leg. The leg itself is easy to make by using the lathe modifier on a profile line.
The little carvings on the legs are also a bit tricky if you don’t know how to approach them, but 3Ds max has great poly modeling tools and this tutorial video shows exactly how to use them!
