Hello everybody!

In this tutorial we will learn how to create realistic drinking glass with Autodesk 3D Studio Max. For this tutorial you don't need much experience with this program - just follow these steps.

First, we create drinking glass model, then we put some light in our scene and we work with materials and renderer. Note that you need to have installed material libraries.

1. Modeling

Start you 3DS Max program. If it is already open, go to File>Reset>No>Yes. Of course, you must save your previous work by going to File>Save.

It is time to draw line for our drinking glass. Maximize you Front viewport so you can draw more precisely. Note that this line will be assigned with Lathe modifier later. Draw line, click to define vertexes and hit Esc to finish.

Now it is time to draw second line for our drinking glass. Just draw line in way that you think is the best.

After this, we need to clone these two lines to get wall for model. Just click on line, select clone and move line along the Y axis.
