As I recently began learning 3ds Max, I kept getting in over my head and getting very frustrated with trying to create shapes in several different methods.
it kept coming down to the fact that I just havnt mastered the basic skills. i'm too used to working in another medium (autocad) and as i kept getting angry and starting over again and again... i was watching my son in the next room with all his lego's strewn across the floor as he played, it gave me an idea!
basically i began modeling one brick after another. eventually i had a decent library of parts, and the repetition of creating all of them was finally getting me the skills i needed!
next i downloaded several instruction booklet pdf's from the Lego website, and began learning assemblies etc... as i would stack and construct with them.
anyway, hope this will help out anyone else just starting out as well. and here's the first lil-bugger i put together! hope you like it
