3ds Max

3ds Max

Autodesk 3ds Max helps deliver improved productivity so users can work more efficiently and creatively with 3D modelling and rendering software for design visualisation, games and animation.

Take full artistic control with professional-quality 3D models

Create massive worlds in games, stunning scenes for design visualisation and engaging virtual reality experiences. Use 3ds Max® toolsets to shape and define detailed environments, objects and characters. Model any person, place or thing.

Create and render striking scenes with integrated Arnold renderer

3ds Max works with most major renderers to create high-end scenes and stunning visuals for design visualisation and more. Experience interactive rendering from the interface for accurate and detailed previews while you work.

Scale your workflow with automated processes in 3ds Max

3ds Max supports the needs of tight deadlines – so you spend more time being creative.

  • Use 3ds Max as a compute engine to scale content production
  • Extend built-in workflows with accessible APIs
  • Accelerate manual steps to boost productivity

Solutions in 3ds Max

Simpler project and pipeline management

  • Structure project folders in a way that makes sense for your pipeline — and automatically switch between projects when opening a file from a different project.
  • Custom data can be stored within a 3ds Max scene file, and accessed without loading it into 3ds Max.
  • It’s now easier to share Alembic data between 3ds Max and other 3D tools, with support for UVs, layer names, material IDs, and vertex colour.

Faster content creation and editing

  • Extensive support for Open Shading Language maps, including over 100 included shaders.
  • Advanced wood procedural textures, including maple, cherry, oak, pine, mahogany, and more.
  • With a new Shape Boolean object, users can perform Boolean operations parametrically on geometry created around splines.
  • Edit scenes directly in VR with 3ds Max Interactive 2021.

More efficient collaboration

  • Sharing assets with reviewers and collaborators from 3ds Max is now simpler than ever: Assets can be shared to the online Autodesk Viewer directly from the 3ds Max interface, so reviewers don't need to install extra software or sign in to view the content.
  • Reviewers can view, markup, and take screenshots of content directly in-browser, and feedback can be reviewed from within 3ds Max.

3ds Max is included as part of the AEC Collection & Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.
