CHAPTER 2 • Sculpting the Body 37 3ds max 6 KillerTips WIREFRAME MODELS, PART II: USE RENDERABLE SPLINES Can’t get enough of that old retro-CG wireframe look? How about a wireframe model made of splines? Just select your model, convert it to an editable mesh (or apply an Edit Mesh modifier to it), and go into Sub-Object/Edge mode. Select the edges of your model you want to show as wireframe; then, at the bottom of the Edit Geometry rollout, click the Create Shape from Edges button. When the Create Shape menu appears, change Shape Type to Linear (so that it follows the original edge contours precisely), make sure Ignore Hidden Edges is checked, name the new shape whatever you want, and click OK.

If you set the radius (thickness) of the individual struts to a small number, you can simulate an extremely lacy, wireframe appearance of your original geometry. If you have two duplicated—and coincident (that is, occupying the same space)—copies of your object, one with the Lattice modifier and one without, you can simulate hidden-line wireframe rendering. Just assign your original, nonlatticed model a different color than the lattice model, or apply a Matte/Shadow material to it, while keeping your lattice version self-illuminated.

They can’t do your algebra homework for you, but did you know that the spinners in 3ds max can do simple math? Simply select the value present in the spinner, type r (for “relative” value), and type the value you want to add to the current value. 3ds max does the math for you. ) To test this, create a simple box of 200 × 200 × 200 units. In the Length setting, select the 200 value, type r125 (so that it replaces the 200), and press Enter. The 3ds max program changes the value to 325. 45 and press Enter.
