Carlos Mazon Godoy & Taylor James @ 3ds London Wed 7th May

3ds Max London User Group
From 7pm, Wednesday 7th May
Truckles of Pied Bull Yard

Good news this month! After last month’s hiatus 3ds London returns on Wednesday 7th May at Truckles. The downstairs area has now been booked for our exclusive use for the rest of the year’s meetings, and they’ve sorted out a P.A. for us.

I hope last month’s call for speakers struck a nerve, if you’ve got an interesting project bring it along! If you want to do a more detailed presentation get in touch. To kick off the evening Keith Jeffery and Dave Wortley from always-impressive Taylor James are going to present some recently completed work for Ford, talk tech and give us a sneak peek of a new tool they're developing.

I’m also looking forward to a presentation from Carlos Mazon Godoy. Carlos has freelanced all over London so you might know him, if not check out his site. Carlos is going to go through some of his  very stylish work and talk a bit about how he uses Blender and Cycles in his workflow.

Check, follow @3dslondon or email to get on the distribution list. See you there!
