## 3DS Max extract 2D sections from 3D objects

Here we learn how to use the section tool found in the Shapes category to create 2D sections out of 3D objects and export them to other programs like Autocad.

## Lesson 6 - 3DS Max - Total Beginners - Axis Constraints

In this 7th video of the Total Beginners series, we will learn about an Important feature called Axis Constraints that can help us use the Snap tool on a specific Axis or a pair of axis.

## 3DS Max Numerical Expression Evaluator

1 vote

Whenever you have a numeric field in 3DS Max, you can use a nice little feature called Numerical Expression Evaluator. Just click inside that field and press CTRL+N to open Numerical Expression Evaluator Dialog.

## 3DS Max - Trick - Creative Way To Align

1 vote

In this video, we will learn how to align objects in a specific direction on another object using a helper object.

## 3DS Max - How To - Show Invisible Edges And Quadrify Faces

In this video, we will see how to show the hidden edges and make them permanently visible to be used in Editable Poly. Also, and quickly, we will learn how to use the Quadrify tool in Editable Poly to create quad faces out of Non-Quad faces. This tool doesn't have 100% success result all the time, it depends on the object's mesh, but it will try its best. In many cases, it's 100% successful.

## 3DS Max - Can't Weld Vertices On Meshes Or Splines - Fix

In this tutorial, we'll why vertices won't weld on meshes or splines and
How to fix this problem.

## 3DS Max - Create A Custom Construction Plane

In this video, we will see how we can create our own construction plane,
close to the UCS thing in AutoCad. We will learn also how we can place a construction plane on top of a specific face so that this face's orientation will be the custom construction plane's orientation. In the end, will we learn how we can use this custom grid as a handy modeling aid in complex geometry. Also in this last section, we will deal with the problem when you try to use the Auto Grid on a Polygon that shares the same smoothing group with an adjacent face.

## Lesson 8-3DS Max Total Beginners-2D Shapes-Intro part 2-Types Of Vertices

In this 2nd part of the Intro to 2D Shapes, we will learn about the 4 types of vertices, what they mean, how we can convert one to another, and at the end, we will learn how to copy/paste the tangency handle (orientation and size) from one vertex to another.
