My first course in MAX was taught by Matt Acker, a 3D exhibition designer with Redmond, Washington-based ImagiCorps. The Seattle Community College class covered how to navigate the interface, customize it, how to build objects from primitive objects and progressed to more complex modeling techniques. I learned tons from Matt, a natural in the classroom, and here are several early projects.
I recall being thrilled that I had figured out how to make a bump map. I’m still quite proud of these early attempts at modeling. The bottle label graphics were created in Adobe Illustrator.– Joe Gast
