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 London Member's Web Presence

I hope everyone enjoyed last night; thanks to everyone at Hayes Davidson for hosting, all the presenters and everyone else who's come along this year and made the evenings worthwhile.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 1st February 2012 at The Plough. Hopefully, Neil Hazzard will be able to make it! We have a number of great speakers lined up already, if you're interested in talking next year let me know.

Peter Guthrie's presentation was brilliant, as is his blog. If you have one, let me know so we can start a blogroll here on the site; leave a comment on this post, or email me directly, use Twitter or Linked In.
To get things started, here's mine. See you all next year!

Map and Directions

It’s the last 3ds London of 2011, and to wrap up the year we have a busy event planned. If you squeezed into The Plough last month, thanks, I hope you were squashed up against someone nice. Happily, we’ll have a bit more space this month, Hayes Davidson have kindly opened their doors (figuratively, you’re going to have to knock) for us to enjoy their hospitality again. There’s going to be a couple of short presentations first from members whose work has been in the news recently which will be great, please bring along some of your own work to show the group too.

Neil Hazzard, Autodesk M&E, is our first presenter; Neil is the development lead on rendering and interactive viewports for 3ds Max, and is coming along to discuss Nitrous and perhaps Iray, time willing. A great opportunity to discuss everyone’s favourite 3D program with one of the key developers!

I’m very happy that Peter Guthrie will be the second presenter. A freelance visualisation artist with a background in architecture, Peter studied architecture in Edinburgh, Scotland and worked as an architect for several years before making the switch to visualisation. Peter recently presented at the SOA Academy Days in Venice and enjoys sharing his findings via his blog. There’s no way you haven’t heard of Peter if you’re involved in Arch Viz, he’s travelling a long way to make the evening so don’t miss it!

It’s going to be a brilliant evening so do come along, everyone is welcome. Remember, please bring along some of your own work to show the group too! Next year, as usual, we’ll skip January, then back at The Plough for February. Details posted at, LinkedIn and Twitter, follow @3dslondon.

Kind regards, Simon
