Michael:

 

I am a landscape architect who is just getting started with 3dsmax. I have a ton of video tutorials but since you seem to be much farther along than myself, I was wondering if you could advise me how to best get started.  For instance, I have all the Lynda.com 3dsMax tutorials 2009-2001, Digital Tutors (Introduction to 3dsMax, and a few of the mainstream reference books ( Mastering Autodesk 3dsMax) ....

 

So  I am pretty well equipped. I would be interested if you can point me in the right direction to lessen the steepness of my learning curve.

 

Thank you.

Hey, heard you are going to be in Yellowstone for the summer. Steph (from my year) Paavola is stationed out in Rawlins, WY and I was going to make a trip in June sometime to visit. Maybe we could all meet up for the weekend to see the sites. I'll let you know the exact dates when they come up. Good luck with the rest of the semester/finals.

That is a pretty good explanation of BIM. I guess James Sipes has proposed it be called LIM (Land) for Landscape use but I don't really see why it matters. It will be an incredibly help tool it will just take some adaptation. Landscape components will have to made for it. Bim is kind of everywhere now. Even Rhino has a BIM plug in for it.

What I like about Digital Projects the most is the parametric aspect and creating relationships in space. It is a powerful tool to use in developing designs spatially.

copy and paste that link and tell me what you think. I have thought of a promotional idea for it. We need to talk. I think this can work and become increasingly valuable.
