In this course you will learn the basics of poly modeling in 3ds Max, and then continue into advanced techniques and projects.


Poly modeling is an extremely powerful tool within the world of 3d graphics. It gives an artist the capability to create any kind of form they can imagine -- from simple, to highly intricate and organic.


Hi, my name is Adam Zollinger and I have been teaching on Udemy for about 8 years. I have about 100,000 students worldwide and teach on the subject of 3d graphics, having 20 years of professional experience in that field.

Specifically, I am an architectural visualization artist (arch viz) so a lot of the poly modeling is done from that perspective, but the skills translate to all aspects of 3d, and these techniques can be used to create any kind of object, whether for architecture or sci-fi, etc.


In this course, students can start with a basic introduction to the principles of poly modeling. If this is too basic, students are encouraged to jump right into the projects. To start, there are 3 different projects (ranging from easy to advanced), with each project building new skills and using new tools and techniques to build your foundation in poly modeling. By the end, students will be modeling a photo realistic piece of furniture to add to their library of assets. We will also discuss UVW unwrapping in the advanced project, so students will understand how to setup their models for custom materials.


If you are interested in learning a new 3d skill, or enhancing your existing ones, I hope you will join me in the course. Myself and my teacher's assistant will be around in the Q&A section to address questions and help you along your way. Poly modeling is such a great way to "level up" your arch viz or other 3d projects. Once you unlock this skill, the only limit on what you can model using 3ds Max is your imagination. I designed this course to cut through all the mysterious stuff, and give the essentials, so if you are ready to jump into poly modeling right away, join now!

Can't wait to see you in class!
