Create realistic glass material in 3DS MAX In this tutorial you will learn how to create a realistic glass material and turn our chess pawn into a realistic glass object. Key terms include reflection, refraction, opacity, and fall-off. This tutorial is aimed at the beginner, but since there are several ways to create glass, it might be interesting for everyone else as well. Although this tutorial is based on 3D Studio Max, the same settings apply to many other 3D products.

Inition brings augmented reality to Engineering Design Show Delegates at this year's Engineering Design Show will be able to see and experience an innovative augmented reality tool developed specifically for the multi-million pound Thames Tideway Tunnel Scheme. Created by 3D technology and creative production company Inition, the interactive platform offers an insight into how the tunnel will be constructed. London's existing sewerage system was designed in the Victorian era, and when it rains heavily, an estimated 39million tonnes of untreated water overflows into the River Thames. The Thames Tideway Tunnel Scheme is designed to absorb this excess water, greatly improving the river quality and achieving European environment standards. Visitors to Stand C80 at the 2013 Engineering Design Show will be able to see a physical model of a cross section of a typical riverside London street area, from above ground to below the Thames river, along with the underground tunnel structure underneath.
