Dear Speckle Developers and Community,
The Speckle is a phenomenally useful tool in various workflow. Especially, it became even more evident with Blender connector integration! But for the architectural visualization market, where 3ds Max+Vray/Corona still remains to be the “industry standard tool” for the majority of visualization offices all around the world. This is related to various reasons such as wide pool of 3d assets/materials/plugins that are in many cases proprietorial for the software stated above. Due to these factors, archiviz studious keep having the workflow which starts from receiving Rhino files from architectural offices and setting up the 3d scene in 3ds Max for the projects.
In the process of architectural project development, there are might be a lot of design back and forth that require a lot of effort in the file transfer and communication between architects and visualization studios. In most cases, this process is not automated and requires manual file conversion and transfer that is taking a decent portion of time both for architects and visualization studios. Implementation of a Speckle connector to 3ds Max will become an absolute game changer for the whole industry, making the process much faster and efficient for the huge amount of people all around the world!
I hope this topic will resonate with your vision of the future development of Speckle connectors and will help to make your incredibly useful tool even better.
