This project was an interior design of a Japanese Dojo. It was designed as a final test for the students of an interior design course I taught in the University. The main objective of the course was learning a bit of 3D Studio Max 7.0 and Photoshop 7 for interior design purposes. The objective was showing that an interesting interior could be designed and implemented in 3D in no more than a couple of days.
I thought it would be a great idea to teach students some way of showing their images in an interactive way to their clients, after all, they were interior designers and they had to sell their products. For that reason, I look for some easy way to do that, something they could learn in no more than one or two days. The solution I found was a panoramic view. I teach them how to get those kinds of images from their designs and I provided them with some free tools to use those panoramic views, including online and offline.
Japanese Dojo Panoramic View
-- Click and move the mouse to pan and tilt
-- While panning, use control and shift keys to zoom in and out.
-- Alternatively, use the arrow keys for panning and tilting in fixed increments.
-- Use + and -, or > and < keys to zoom in fixed increments.
Extra Exercises Design
A part from the Japanese Dojo exercise, some other exercises were designed for the students to help them to quickly get used to 3DMax interface and basic modelling options.
