Select the vertices comprising the exterior curve and merge them using the Collapse command (Fig. 9 e). Be sure not to include redundant vertices! • Merge the vertices one by one with the Target Weld command to obtain proper cavities (Fig. 9, f). 9, f and g: Editing the propulsion module • Select the top polygon and give it a little facet using the Bevel command (Fig. 9, g). You can make the bottom part in the same way, but there is also a more interesting method. • Select the top polygons. To do so, select the top polygon and use the Grow command: ♦ Control panel à Selection à Grow • Create a new object with the Detach command and copy it (Fig.

Unfortunately, because it highlights all objects without exception, it cannot be used in our scene. • Create the camera and sources of light as shown in Fig. 18, a: Camera and light-source positions Explanation Since both the Sun and Moon are a great distance from the spaceship, their rays are considered parallel. Therefore, the type of source is parallel (Direct). You can use either a Free Direct or Target Direct source in each case; we prefer the second type. By making the center of the lit object the target, it is easy to move the source without being afraid that the object will no longer be illuminated.

12, a and b, when importing. 12: Options when importing files in AI format Before we continue, there is one matter that needs to be addressed. Independent of the viewport with which you are working, 3ds max will position the imported curves on the grid, making them so small that you probably will not see them. The initial urge to rescale them is natural, but doing so will cause problems. Using the Scale command on the object level scales the local coordinates, which may make further editing difficult.
