A 3ds Max/SimCity channels

Mr. Bluesummers'.

Paul Fatkins
He works a lot with modifier and use the animate function in them to make it easier to go back a change things.
I learned a lot from his first 8 videos. Themes here are Parametric design and organic design.

Design Strategies
General 3ds Max modelling and some parametric, some used the plug-in Para.
Some of the videos are in Germans, some are in English. Now you have been warned.

Videos on 3ds Max as well as Revit. There are all on the theme of Parametric design.

Arrimus 3D
A lot about hard surface modeling. Modeling with Polygons (and turbosmooth), talking a lot about topolgy.
I would start with his first, watch the first some, then jump a few videos. A lot of the same, but still a lot of useful stuff.

Excellent resource, thanks very much Vester  :thumbsup:
Pay heed to the tales of old wives. It may well be that they alone keep in memory what it was once needful for the wise to know.


Thank you both. You are welcome to suggest other youtube channels to be added to the list.
