andyH Posted June 10, 2009 Share Posted June 10, 2009 Hi everyone, I am very new to 3d, and I have just completed a max course. I am building up to do an arch-viz project for a friend (and also to add to my portfolio) of a small residential development (2 story house). I received the cad files from the architect this morning, and I have had a look at them using a free dwg viewer. The files include 2d floor plans, elevations and a site plan. Looks like everything I need to get started. My question is this. I dont have autocad, just 3ds Max 2010. So I want to get started by simply modeling the house. I was hoping that someone may be able to give me a hint about how best to create the 3d geometry in max when starting out with two .dwg files, one is site plan, the other contains floor plan and elevations. I know that the .dwg imports into max, but its just one big flat 2d thing in my viewport. So whats the best approach to workflow to break this thing up and make it a useable accurate reference in Max, or do I need to consider some intermediate product to do the job? Many thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
