Thread: 3ds MAX: OK, I'm doing something wrong, obviously...

    Default 3ds MAX: OK, I'm doing something wrong, obviously...

    ...but I can't tell exactly what.

    ==================================

    Total 3ds Max noob, here, trying to follow the multiple provided tutorials, and failing.

    Here's what I've loaded so far:

    (1) Loaded 3ds Max 7.
    (2) Loaded CAS_IE_b69.ms.

    Here's the steps I've taken:

    (1) Opened 3ds Max 7.
    (2) Clicked on the "utilities tab" (the Hammer).
    (3) Clicked on "MAXScript".
    (4) Selected "Run Script".
    (5) Chose CAS_IE_b69.ms.
    (6) Pulled down and selected "R:TW Import/Export" from the utilities pull-down menu.
    (7) Expanded "R:TW Import".
    (8) Selected "Import CAS".
    (9) Selected "unit_greek_argyraspides_v2_400.CAS" as the file to edit.

    At this point, I believe I should be seeing some form of model. Instead, each of the four quadrants (top, front, left, perspective) displays a small purple box with arrows protruding (X/Y axis).

    The "hoggy" tutorial now instructs, "collapse all". No buttons or other selections seem to offer this as a choice. Am I missing something?

    The next step from hoggy is selecting all vertices and hitting "weld selected". I don't see a command for this, either, but that might be because I haven't gotten to a point where it is relevant.

    What am I doing wrong?

    And yes, I've spent enough time researching tutorials that my wife is seriously pissed, and I still can't find what I need.

    Sorry for being so uninformed. Can someone help?

    in my experience with 3ds max when u first load a file in it is a mile zoomed out. zoom in a long long way and u may see the model u r missing. apart from that if u r not getting an error message then i have no idea as to y u shouldnt be seeing a model. try zoomin though it worked for me
    "How come i cant make friends like that"
    "You need to get out more"
    "Im in another galaxy, how much more out can i get"

    Did you get any error messages when the model imported? If it didn't, then zoom right in and all should be OK.

    When I get hom, I will try and load up the same CAS file you did, and make sure it works OK, assuming you haven't solved the problem by then!
