3ds Max

Formerly known as "3D Studio," 3ds Max is a 3D modeling, animation and rendering program from the Media and Entertainment division of Autodesk, Inc., San Rafael, CA (www.discreet.com). Widely used in the areas of interactive games, visual effects for movies and industrial design models, the software lets you create 2D shapes that become the cross sections of the 3D models. The application includes an animation module that uses inverse kinematics, which links components so that they move together, adding to the effect of bringing a character to life. 3ds Max carried Autodesk's Discreet brand name until 2005. See Character Studio.

The volumetric model of the screw implant built in the Autodesk 3DsMax 2015 system, taking into account all the necessary parameters, is presented in Fig.
In the course of the study, a three-dimensional implant model was constructed and a 3D scan of the femur was used to calculate the implant strength under the influence of human weight using Autodesk 3DsMax 2015 and Inventor 2017 programs.
The second and most useful way, as shown on figure 1, is to use normal map creation plugins for 3D content creation tools, such as zBrush, Lightwave3D and 3DSMax. Using these tools we actually model our geometry with as much detail as possible and create our low resolution model that we are actually going to use in our visualization.
All the major 3D applications (namely 3DSMax, Maya, Lightwave, Poser, XSI, Rhino, etc.) are excellent.
Mid-range applications such as Discreet's 3DSMax or Lightwave from Newtek, provide robust and easy-to-use network rendering solutions.
