Just today I got notification from Ted Boardman that he has launched his own blog. So who is Ted Boardman you might ask? Well if you don't know who Ted is and you are using 3ds Max or Viz, you might want to do some reading as he is one of the best in the industry on both 3ds Max and Viz. He is a well accomplished author (books and articles) and trainer in the world of 3D visualization with 3ds Max and Viz. You can find Ted help others out on the Internet through tutorials on CGArchitect, conducting classes in Green Bay WI at Virtual Partners, at Autodesk University, and many other places. I have met Ted in a number of places, and have even taken a class from him at Virtual Partners a few years back. He is a great guy and he really knows his subject matter when it comes to teaching those that have been using 3ds Max for a while, and those that are completely new to the program. If you are looking for training on 3ds Max, I would highly recommend that you take a class that is taught by Ted.
