The 3ds Max London User Group meets on the first Wednesday of every month at Truckles, opposite the British Museum. Started in 2007, the group enjoys a great number of professional members from London's advertising, architectural and animation industries. We meet to discuss ideas, methods and projects in a friendly, relaxed setting.

3ds Max London User Group next Wednesday 1st December

Autodesk’s Soho Office
Ingeni Building
15-17 Broadwick Street

Arrive from 6:30pm for 7pm sharp please

Hello everyone,

Next Wednesday 1st December I’m happy to say we once again enjoy the hospitality of Autodesk at their Soho offices for the last 3ds Max London User Group meeting of 2010. We also have a great speaker with a really cool project to present; Mike Merron recently worked as Technical Director at 1stAveMachine on the new Ford C-Max commercial. Mike is going to come along to show us how it was done, using 3ds Max, Vray, and Fusion amongst others. Of course, we’re always looking for other projects to watch and talk about, so bring something along!

With no meeting last month and nothing planned for January it will be great for everyone to catch-up on Wednesday (the first week of the year is hectic enough, but rest assured we have another great talk pencilled in for February 2011).

Everyone welcome, I look forward to seeing you all, regards, Simon

Hello Everyone,

Please note there’s no User Group meeting this Wednesday 3rd November. I’m afraid the double whammy of no confirmed speaker or venue would make it tricky! Sorry for the late notice, I was hoping to get something together at the last minute but it didn’t happen in the end. We’ve been lucky to enjoy some great venues and speakers recently, good to see the evenings have been well attended too. I’ve struggled to find a suitable venue to replace the Black Horse Pub though, whilst they have let us down a few times it does have the advantage of being central, and free. I’ve been to almost every Pub in the West End now, but if you know somewhere else suitable let me know.

Many hundreds of people know about the evening now, so some of you must be able to make a presentation at an upcoming event! It shouldn’t take too long to prepare and you’ll enjoy it, promise.

Again, sorry for the late notice, regards, Simon
