AUTODESK 3DS MAX

Autodesk 3ds Max is one of the most widely used and popular 3D modelling and animation tools available today. The program was first released as 3D Studio Max in 1990 and has gone through a massive number of versions and changes over the decades.

The latest version of 3ds Max comes with all the most cutting edge graphics rendering technology available today and many blockbuster films have been created using 3ds Max. This includes mega hits such as Iron Man, several X-Men films and Mad Max: Fury Road.

SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS:

3ds Max is capable of some of the most advanced 3D rendering possible with modern computer hardware. As such it can make full use of multiple CPU threads and the CUDA cores found in modern Nvidia graphics cards.

So in general this software will benefit from upgrades all the way to the very top of the hardware range. Which as you would expect means that the fastest workstations we offer also provide the best experience in 3ds Max, especially when it comes down to speeding up final renders.

There are some exceptions to this however, since not everyone completes their entire 3D rendering workflow on a single workstation. Lower specified machines with fast single core performance and only mid-range graphics hardware can be used to work with wireframe models where only animation and other scene-setting work is to be done. These frameworks can then be passed on to more powerful machines or even render farms for final processing. The machine you therefore choose should be suitable for the parts of the workflow it will be used for.


3ds Max for Modeling and Animation only
If all you are doing is building wire frame models, setting up scenes, or work interactively with very basic or no rendering processes, you need the fastest single socket solutions for 3ds Max.
