3ds Max modeling, rendering, and animation software
Produce professional-quality 3D animations, renders, and models with 3ds Max® software. An efficient and flexible toolset to help you create better 3D content in less time.
Automated retopology and mesh repair
Automatically optimize the geometry of high-resolution models to create a clean, quad-based mesh geometry.
Mesh and surface modeling
Create parametric and organic objects with polygon, subdivision surface, and spline-based modeling features.
Material, texture, and color editor
Apply material finishes, change textures, and use vibrant colors to make your designs photorealistic.
Baking to texture
Streamlined, intuitive, and fully scriptable texture baking experience.
Weighted normals modifier
Built-in weighted normal calculator that can be directly applied to 3D models allowing you to create precise designs.
Interactively extrude faces of 3D objects. Rebuild and stitch together adjacent faces automatically.
Character animation and rigging tools
Create procedural animation and character rigging with CAT, biped, and crowd animation tools.
General animation tools
Use keyframe and procedural animation tools and also view and edit animation trajectories directly in the viewport.
3ds Max Fluids
Create realistic liquid behaviors such as water, oil, lava as well as replicate gravity and collision effects. (video: 30 sec.)
Preview and adjust animation paths directly in the viewport.
