Hello Mr. Keman, thanks for this great and very clear video. Using the spline sample, was the right thing to do! Somethimes, we can loose track of this simple concepts and really create a mess of our models.

Hello Denis, first of all, thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge with us. I´ve seen almost all of your videos and you´re just a master.

I´m kind of new in 3dmax because I´m an architect and usually we introduce into 3d world with autocad and I´m so used to the offset comand to do a lot of things.

Is there any way to do something like that with objets and edges in 3dmax?

For example, in a simple box, can I make a copy (offset) of an internal edge or a loop of egdes at certain distance to any side?
that would be very helpfull to create more realistic and precise models.

Thaks a lot for your time reading this, and I hope you can help me improve my skills.
