Is Maya the best program for architectural modeling?
on Sep 7, 2005 at 5:01:54 pm

I am a landscape architect and planner. My company wants to use 3D modeling for presentation purposes for various projects showing commercial and residential site plans. We are currently evaluating several different programs to use. Is Maya the best program for architectural modeling? What about Lightwave, 3D Studio or Cinema 4D? Thanks!

If you need accuracy, you might want to consider other programs such as CAD that are geared more toward design and engineering. Once built, then you can take those 3D models into Maya, texture and light them and do fly-by animations, etc.

I'm not saying that Maya isn't accurate, but for me, I just found it more difficult to build things to exact specifications vs. a 3D CAD program.

I think that Max is your best option, autocad and max comunicate very well, and, there are a lot more resources for architecture than for any other application.
You can do the samethings in all major aplications, but I personally think that for architecture Max is the best.

Check this links, maybe there you can find more advice:
