How to Build a 3D Model for a Video Game—and How to Use 3D Tools
Now that you’ve figured out how to make a 3d model, you might want to explore the possibilities of using 3D tools.
If you’ve already built your own models and textures, you’re in luck.
This article will walk you through building a 3ds Max 3d file and some of the 3d modeling tools you’ll need.
Step 1: Download 3D Models For this article, we’re going to download all of the files in the 3ds MAX library.
To download a 3DS MAX model, just click the link in the menu bar, select File, and then Browse 3DS.
You’ll see a list of files, click the one you want to download, and you’ll get a window like this: Step 2: Download and Import Your Model As you can see, the 3DS Max library contains files that have a 3-D model attached to them.
To import your model into 3ds, click File, select Import, and click OK.
Step 3: Create Your New 3ds Model Now, click on the Browse 3ds icon on the top right of the window, and select Create New 3d Model.
We’ll use this file to make our model, but it’s a good idea to make your model as simple as possible.
When you’re ready, click OK to save the file and close the window.
In the file explorer window, you’ll see three options: 3D model.
Click on the Add button at the top of the Create New Model window.
Name your model “3ds Max” and choose the name of your file.
Next, click Next.
Step 4: Create your 3D Object As you’ve seen in the previous article, the main purpose of a 3DT file is to make it easier for us to import our 3D models.
The next step is to define the 3D object.
We can use the Create 3D Objects window to create our 3DS object.
To do this, select the 3DT object from the list of available 3D objects, and from the drop-down menu, select 3d object.
Step 5: Select the Shape of Your 3D Shape In the Shape Window, you can select either the normal, sphere, or cylinder.
If we want to create a sphere, we’ll want to select the Normal Shape, as that’s the most basic shape we’ll be using in the model.
You can also select the sphere by clicking on the sphere icon, and selecting the shape that appears.
When your shape is selected, click Add, and add the following information: Name: My 3DS 3D shape.
Shape Type: Normal.
Shape Width: 5.
Size: 5 × 5.
