Autodesk 3ds Max for Realistic Visualization & Animation

Market your products before they're real with Autodesk 3ds Max.

Create accurate and highly realistic visualizations and animations of industrial machinery, automotive designs, and consumer product digital prototypes.

Autodesk 3ds Max is a natural extension of Autodesk® Inventor® software for creating visualizations of digital prototypes for interactive marketing campaigns. Autodesk 3ds Max contains a suite of data preparation, modeling, animation, effects, and rendering tools that enable manufacturers to:

  • Create advanced software-rendered animated visualizations and high-resolution still images for design reviews and client presentations.
  • Add animated characters to scenes; animate products and exploded diagrams; and place products in their intended settings for in-context visualization.
  • Market products in print, on the web, and in television commercials and video games without the need for costly physical prototypes and photography shoots. Advanced mental ray® renderer rendering, animation, and effects tools enable designers and computer graphics (CG) artists to create virtual photography and cinematography that is nearly indistinguishable from reality.
  • Give designers and CG artists flexibility for the design, animation, and rendering of digital prototypes within a single unified pipeline from Autodesk through data interoperability between Inventor and 3ds Max Design.
