19). 19. Setting the shape steps to 0 completely ruins the integrity of the intended mesh by removing all curvature from the circular shape. Increasing the shape steps to 3 might result in an acceptable mesh object with a total face count of 156, less than half the original 332 faces. The important fact is that you can easily adjust the density of your lofted objects at any time to achieve an optimum balance between the detail of the object and the efficiency of the object, which is so critical to production.
4. S. Standard and Feet w/Fractional Inches to the nearest 1/8. Part II: Outdoor Scene with Ship 39 40 Part II: Outdoor Scene with Ship note The Default Units radio buttons in the Units Setup dialog are for numeric data entry only. If you type a number with no sign after it, 3ds max 6 treats it as feet. If you want to enter inches or feet and inches, you must use the appropriate single quote or double quote signs respectively. You can set the default for whatever makes the most sense in your production.
