Sending Curves from 3ds Max to Rhino

In 3DSMax, Design, Digital, Rhino, Tutorial, Video on 04/15/2010 at 16:52

Software: Autodesk 3dsMax, Rhino 3D

Description: In this 3ds Max/Rhino video we will  explore the workflow of  exporting/importing geometry in and out of 3ds Max and Rhino. We will begin by creating curves forming a helix in 3ds Max, export them to Rhino to create a panelized surface, then import that geometry back into 3ds Max to create parametric details. The goal of this exercise is to study the functionality of one software platform versus another, understanding what tools are useful in each program.

Topics Covered:

  • Creating curves forming a helix in 3ds Max
  • Importing curvature in Rhino from 3ds Max
  • Rebuilding curves to generate a panelized surface in Rhino
  • Importing panelized surface into 3ds Max and adding parametric detailing
