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.

Wednesday 2nd July

This Wednesday 2nd July is 3ds London- England is out the World Cup (boo) so no clashes (yay), the sun will be shining and Truckles has a great courtyard to drink in- plus there’ll be all the usual 3ds Max camaraderie in the basement… sounds wrong but you’ll love it.

This month Raffaele Schiavullo is presenting his virtual reconstruction of the "Villa of Papyri in Herculaneum” which has been, for 7 months, the main attraction at the exhibition "La Villa de los Papiros" at the Casa del Lector Museum in Madrid. I’m looking forward to this, it’s a bit different and a topic Raffaele is both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about.

Raffaele will focus on "Virtual Archaeology" for cultural heritage, showing how he rebuilt an ancient ruin with archival research as guide line and talk about the laser scanning of the original statues from the Villa and making the 3D models of the monument in 3ds Max. Raffaele started his career at the Cultural and Virtual Reality Lab, University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). He has worked as an Art Director and 3D Artist for many educational and cultural projects and was a Professor at the University of Naples teaching Interactive Virtual Reality for Architecture and Industrial Design for eight years.

Always looking for presentations don’t forget! If it’s short just bring it along, if you’re feeling more confident get in touch and arrange a date. Check, follow @3dslondon or email to get on the distribution list. I recently discovered 3ds London has been on Facebook for four years- thanks Sol! So you can check that out too.

See you there, kind regards, Simon
