Learn all the crucial techniques you’ll need from authors Randi and Dariush Derakhshani, Autodesk Certified Instructors with years of professional experience under their belts. Artists, students, educators, and hobbyists will benefit from the guide’s techniques and tutorials, getting to know the program as a whole and gaining insight into which aspects of the 3D production pipeline are most appealing. Whether you’re a beginner or migrating from another 3D application, Autodesk 3ds Max 2015 Essentials provides the solid foundation.
This text contains notes, worked examples, and solutions to tutorial questions that have been developed over a period of many years as a learning aid for undergraduate students studying Civil Engineering and/or Structural Engineering. Much of the material forms the basis for teaching within ENG469 Structural Analysis at Charles Darwin University (CDU), while the other material is similar in nature to that taught in Units in the earlier years of the BEng Degree in Civil Engineering at CDU. The text will be a useful learning and revision aid to students studying similar courses at other Universities in Australia and elsewhere. The production and format of this document have been developed from notes developed over many years, and have incorporated helpful suggestions from past students. This approach to teaching ‘difficult’ material to students has attracted favourable comments from students and academic staff alike.

“Prefab Architecture . . . is beyond theory, and beyond most of what we think we know about pods, containers, mods, and joints. This book is more than ‘Prefabrication 101.’ It is the Joy of Cooking writ large for the architecture and construction industries.”
—From the Foreword by James Timberlake, FAIA
The definitive reference on prefab architecture for architects and construction professionals
Written for architects and related design and construction professionals, Prefab Architecture is a guide to off-site construction, presenting the opportunities and challenges associated with designing and building with components, panels, and modules. It presents the drawbacks of building in situ (on-site) and demonstrates why prefabrication is the smarter choice for better integration of products and processes, more efficient delivery, and realizing more value in project life cycles. In addition, Prefab Architecture provides:
- A selected history of prefabrication from the Industrial Revolution to current computer numerical control, and a theory of production from integrated processes to lean manufacturing
- Coverage on the tradeoffs of off-site fabrication including scope, schedule, and cost with the associated principles of labor, risk, and quality
- Up-to-date products featuring examples of prefabricated structure, enclosure, service, and interior building systems
- Documentation on the constraints and execution of manufacturing, factory production, transportation, and assembly
- Dozens of recent examples of prefab projects by contemporary architects and fabricators including KieranTimberlake, SHoP Architects, Office dA, Michelle Kaufmann, and many others
In Prefab Architecture, the fresh approaches toward creating buildings that accurately convey mature and expanded green building methodologies make this book an important voice for adopting change in a construction industry entrenched in traditions of the past.
