When you start Autodesk 3ds Max, the default interface screen appears.

This interface consists of four equal sized viewports surrounded by tools and commands, refer to Figure These viewports are labeled as Top, Front, Left, and Perspective.

The viewports in Autodesk 3ds Max are used to create 3D scenes. Also, they enable you to view a scene from different angles. When you create an object in the viewport, the Top, Front, and Left viewports will display the top, front, and left orthographic views of the object, respectively.

The active viewport in 3ds Max is highlighted with a yellow border. Only one viewport can remain active at a time.

The tripod always refers to the world coordinate system, regardless of the local coordinate system. ViewCube is placed at the top right corner of the viewport, refer to Figure The ViewCube provides visual feedback of the current orientation of the viewport. Figure The world space tripod, grid, and ViewCube in the Perspective viewport Note The ViewCube will not be visible in the camera and light viewport. It is important to note that the Local coordinate system defines local position of an object in a scene whereas the World coordinate system uses fixed axes to define the position of all the objects in the world space.

Each viewport has a grid placed in it, refer to Figure It is like a graph paper in which all the lines intersect each other at right angles. You can modify the spacing in the grids. The grids in all viewports act as an aid to visualize the spacing and distance while creating objects. Also, they are used as a construction plane to create and align the objects.
