How To Get 3DS MAX 2019 for FREE

Hello there you beautiful 3D artists! In this
video I’ll show you how you can download and install 3DS Max 2019 for free. Autodesk kindly allows you to have the full
version of the software for three years on a student licence. 3DS Max can be prohibitively
expensive if you want to buy it so being able to install and use it for free whilst you’re
learning is one hell of a good deal. So let’s take a look at what you’ll need to do to
get Max installed on your PC. The first thing you need to do is go to the
autodesk education website. You can follow the link in the video description or you can
just Google “Autodesk Education” just like I’m doing here. Once you’re there you
need to go to the Free software section and then click on the 3DS Max link. This will
take you to the 3DS Max download page. Before you can download the software you need
to either sign in or create an account. This is completely free and the autodesk education
community is a really helpful resource. In addition to the free software, by signing
up you’ll also get access to some really good learning materials. So if you don’t already
have an account you need to click on create account and choose your country and educational
role from the drop down menus. I’m in the UK and I’m an educator so I’m choosing
those options. Next you’ll need to give them your name, email address and create a
new password for your account. Make sure that you use a real email address because you’ll
be sent a confirmation email containing a link which you’ll need to click on to complete
your registration. Agree to the terms and conditions and then click Create Account.
You’ll now receive the confirmation email. Go to your inbox, find the email and then
click the link to activate your account. Now you have your account you can go back
and sign in. Use the email address and password you created to log in – don’t forget to
agree to the Terms of Use too. Once you’ve successfully signed in, you
need to select the version of software that you want to download. You can see that autodesk
offer a few earlier versions as well as the latest. I want to install the latest version
so I’m going with 3DS Max 2019. You’ll then select the operating system you’re
using – 3DS Max doesn’t support 32-bit Windows or Mac OS so you’ll have to choose WIndows
64-bit. Then choose your language. Once you’ve done all that you’ll see that a serial number
and product key is generated for you and you’ll also be given some details about the licence
you’ve been granted. All that’s left to do on this page is to
click on “Install Now”. A service agreement will pop up on screen. You’ll need to accept
this and click on Install. A file will now be downloaded. Once it’s done open it, this
is the installer. Once the installer opens you can choose the option to install 3DS Max
2019 on your computer. This screen allows you to choose which components you want to
install. I don’t want to mess around with any Tools or Utilities today so I’m just
choosing the Install option. Here you’ll have a chance to choose where you want to
install to and once you’re happy with that you can simply click on the install button. The installer will now download and install
everything needed. This will take aaaaaaages. It looks like it went quite quickly for me
but that’s just because I’ve sped it up in editing – it really took almost two hours! Once everything is installed you be greeted
with this confirmation screen. This tells you that you have successfully installed 3DS
Max 2019. You can now click on the “Launch Now” button to test out your brand new software.
You’ll have to agree to a privacy statement and you might also see that Autodesk automatically
verifies your licence as the software is starting up. Once all that’s done you’ll finally
be able to have a play around in 3DS Max 2019. Yaaaaay! So now you’ve got Max installed you’re
probably going to want to learn how to use it. I have recently started learning how to
use Max and I have been using the fantastic courses on Pluralsight to help me. Pluralsight
have tons of excellent tutorials and courses to take you from an absolute beginner to a
seasoned pro. I started with the 3DS Max 2018 Fundamentals course by Kyle Green. It really
helped me to get up and running quickly by teaching me how to create the vehicle you
can see on screen. One of the best things about the learning process is the Skill IQ
feature. This quizzes you on your knowledge of the software and uses this to suggest the
best courses for you to ensure that you’re not wasting time learning things you already
know or getting frustrated trying to follow along with material that’s not suitable
for absolute beginners. If you want to give Pluralsight a try then you can use my link
in the video description to sign up for a 10 day free trial. My first experience with
Pluralsight was through this same free trial and since I first signed up I haven’t looked
back. If this video has helped you out then please

regularly, including some damn fine tutorials on 3D modeling and game development using
Maya and Unreal Engine so be sure to hit that subscribe button too if you want to see more

  1. Instead of finding shady work around for commercial software

    Why not teach people
    Blender and various other Free Open source solutions ?

  2. Does this mean you will be covering 3ds max as your next group of tutorials? Please? Please will you? I have been playing with it for maybe a month now and can make small models but would love a guide on how to make textures and maps for them so I could use them in unreal.

  3. Hi, I'd like to say that you are a god send, I have one question, what do you recommend for me to do, as I want to get serious with this and work in this area after a few years, what books to buy and whether I need to master the things 1 by 1, or just watch tutorials after tutorials and try to practice it by myself…

  4. Thanks! Now get your ass back on here and start making some more awesome, witty tutorials! Pretty please with gouda cheese and frozen green peas you little tease…

  5. This may not be the best comment in the world. But I have an old version of 3ds Max 9 I bought before Autodesk did that ridiculous subscription requirement. If I got this for free, would I be able to just make a new account and reinstall every 3 years?

  6. It says that you have to "Tell us about your educational institution and how you plan to use your free software." what do I do here?

  7. I made an account and filled in the place of study and dates but its saying that the serial number can't be generated at this time and to check back in 30 minutes and its been saying that for 4 hours…what do i do?

  8. My windows is freshly restored and I'm trying to install 3ds max 2019, but on the install screen it says "Something is preventing the software from downloading. Please contact your system administrator" any clue on how to solve this?!
    Edite: Problem solved.

  9. "Tell us about your educational institution and how you plan to use your free software." and "Intent of Usage"

  10. Doesn't work :/ Got up to selecting the version/64bit/English and it said it cannot generate the key/license and didn't give me a reason. Tried multiple times and didn't work.

  11. When I try to get the key it says "cannot provide you with your license details", 2 days and still the same issue what can I do ?

  12. ok but if I don´t plan to make any money whith it is up to me if is cracked or I use student licence, I not ilegal, if that is my choice

  13. "Your request for an Autodesk Educational License has been received and is being processed. We will send you an email when your license details are available and your Autodesk software can be installed.

    Our apologies for this delay."


  14. it worked but I had to wait at least a few weeks to a month to get my license key to activate because they had trouble issuing the key, so I sent them a inquiry about me not receiving my key and later on they sent it to my email. I used the trial in the mean time.
