Lesson 01 | User Interface

 

Introduction

In this lesson, you will learn about the 3ds Max Design® user interface. The user interface, or UI for short, is the method by which the user communicates with the software. The UI is split into two main components: the graphical user interface or GUI (what you see on the screen), and input devices, such as keyboard and mouse. You can customize most of the UI.
