Example text

To further investigate layers and their functionality, use the 3ds max 7 Help files. Work with a simple file similar to this teapot example so that you learn the fundamentals of how the concept can be applied to your production workflow. The Object Properties Dialog When you first begin using the layers in 3ds max 7, it's easy to be confused by the fact that, by default, the objects you create in max have their properties determined by the object settings, not by any layer settings. This means that no amount of layer manipulation will have any bearing on the properties of the objects on that layer until you enable the By Layer option for the object's properties.

15. The Loft panel with Name and Color, Creation Method, Path Parameters, and Skin Parameters rollouts expanded. Part I: The Basics 33 34 Part I: The Basics Underneath the Get Path and Get Shape buttons are some other options: Move, Copy, and Instance. The Instance radio button is selected by default. This means that a clone of the shape jumps to the path, not the original shape itself. The advantage of this option is that you can modify the original 2D shape, and the lofted 34 Part I: The Basics Part I: The Basics 35 3D mesh will change accordingly.

Note Unwelded vertices can result from trimming (as in this example) or from selecting one or more vertices and using the Break command, which turns each selected vertex into two vertices to open the shape. 2D shapes imported from other software, especially CAD programs, can also produce unwelded vertices. These are a result of rounding errors that occur when importing shapes from double-precision math programs 56 Part II: Modeling Part II: Modeling 57 (the CAD programs) into 3ds max 7, which is a single-precision math program.
