10am – 4pm
Beginner to Intermediate
Unlock your creativity and take your 3D modelling skills to the next level with our 3ds Max Fast Track Silver Course. Designed for beginners and intermediate level learners, this 5-day course will equip you with the fundamental skills and techniques needed to create stunning 3D models.
Through hands-on practice, you will learn how to navigate the 3ds Max interface, identify the essential tools, and use shortcuts to speed up your workflow. With the help of our experienced instructors, you will discover the most used 3D modelling techniques used in the industry, including procedural geometry, non-destructive modelling, splines modelling, Boolean operations, and mesh modelling.
We’ll also teach you how to create, apply and size materials, use pictures as references, and apply multiple materials to a single object. You’ll master cameras and lighting, create walkthrough animations, and render your projects to a professional standard.
Our 3ds Max Fast Track Silver Course is the perfect combination of our beginner and intermediate level courses, designed to help you save time and achieve better results in a short time frame. With our expert guidance, you’ll gain the skills and confidence needed to create professional-grade 3D models and visualizations that impress clients and colleagues alike.
As this course is a combination of two different levels of training, you will need to pick a start date for each level below. The beginner level runs over three consecutive days, and the intermediate level is two days long.

If you are attending a public scheduled training course with other students, then you would be following a pre-determined outline. This is to ensure that everyone benefits from the training. However, if you would like to use your own files during the course (perhaps you are working on a project that you’d like to use as a case study), check out our Tailored Training page.
Whether you’re a designer looking to create stunning 3D visualizations, an architect looking to create realistic renderings of your designs, or an animator looking to bring your characters to life, our 3ds Max Fast Track Silver course has something for everyone. With our experienced instructors and hands-on approach to learning, you’ll gain the skills and confidence you need to take on any 3D modelling or animation project with ease.
During the course, you’ll learn how to identify the areas of the interface you’ll be using most frequently, as well as the tool names and shortcuts you’ll need to navigate the software efficiently. You’ll learn how to work with the scene explorer to take full control of your scene, and how to set up your project folder to keep everything in one place. You’ll also discover visual styles to change the way you can view your models, and how to set up the units of your scene.
With modelling, you’ll learn the most used 3D modelling techniques in the industry, including compositing modelling and non-destructive modelling using modifiers. You’ll also learn how to create 3D models with splines and use Boolean operations to combine different models into more complex designs. Additionally, we’ll introduce you to mesh modelling, the final frontier of 3D modelling.
Next, you’ll delve into materials and learn important settings to apply textures to your models. You’ll create, apply, and size materials to your models, and learn how to use pictures as a reference to create your models. You’ll also learn how to create self-illuminating textures and use images with transparency to create cut-outs on your textures.
When it comes to cameras, you’ll learn how to create cameras and adjust their focal length, as well as how to lock them in place and adjust their exposure. You’ll also discover the differences between cameras with targets and those without targets.
With lighting, you’ll learn how to create a daylight system to illuminate your scene and adjust it to get accurate sun readings based on your location on Earth. You’ll also learn how to use different types of lights to create interior lighting and apply colour filters and textures to generate lights. Additionally, you’ll learn how to get light from an HDRI environment image.
Finally, you’ll be introduced to animation, including keyframing and walkthrough animations using cameras and lines. You’ll learn how to create an efficient camera rig to animate your camera on a path and render your animations out as videos.
By the end of our 3ds Max Fast Track Silver course, you’ll have the skills and confidence to create stunning 3D models and animations in no time. With our experienced instructors and hands-on approach to learning, you’ll be well on your way to mastering 3ds Max and taking your career to the next level!
