Max comes with pretty much all the tutorials needed to get a noob started and if they arewnt what you are looking for, you're on a great website for tutorials, its named after them after all! just click the leaf logo in the top left corner of the page.

what version of max are you using and what object/shape are you trying to make at that stage? i.e. chamferbox, rectangle .etc .etc

Im using 3dsmax 8 and im trying to round the edges of spline i did of the chess peice and it tells me to and i quote "Select the two rightmost vertices and then activate the Fillet button on the Modify panel.

With the Fillet command active, place the cursor on one of the selected vertices and then click and drag to round off the two corners, as shown below"

now granted im completely new to this and im probably missing something in front of my face, but for the life of me i cant get it to do what it shows in the picture.



this is what im trying to do[/img]

OK its quite easy (only if you know how i suppose)

What you do is after drawingh the spline (line), go to the modify panel in the top right of your screen (looks a bit like a blue rainbow) then click the small plus sign (+) next to the name of the line i.e. line01.

This brings out three sub object selection modes, click on vertex

this allows you to select the individual points along the line. Select the two verticies in question (hold down Ctrl to select two at the same time and they will turn red to show they have been selected.

Then, further down the modify panel you will see a button called fillet. click this and it will turn yellow now all you have to do is click a drag either of the two selected vertices and you will see the round corner appear and get bigger depending on how far you drag it.

see the picture below

Hope this helps

Unwrapping a model is quite a complex thing to do at first but you'll soon get the hang of it.

This tut I found on this site doesnt look too bad, its a little bit more involved than you want but Its always better to learn more than you need so you can do it next time on something else.

http://www.tutorialized.com/tutoria...Texturing/10791

I'll keep looking and post another if I find a suitable one.

(after reading the tut you'll probably find you need the cylindrical gizmo in the UVW map modifier (you'll see what i mena later)

[edit]this one too... http://www.tutorialized.com/tutoria...tart-Here/14001
