Folder structures

Methods inside Max

Startup settings

Create a project folder on desktop. Drop all Cad files, photos into that.

Create Max file in Max's Scene folder organised by year.

Render scene as Tiff into Max's Output folder (or whatever it's called)

Create PS file.

Save PS file and a JPG copy.

End of project (or week) backup all onto external drive
