This is the first time I use 3ds max, so i read the help first, try to be familiar with the buttons and functions, then the frame work is easy, just a coup of boxes build up together. The glass part is tricky, i tried a lot of ways, like adjust the opacity or reflection or refraction, and since it's the first time i use this software, i don't know how to use "render", that takes me a lot of time, then i find out how to adjust my objects from different view, so the rest is pretty easy, make some changes and render for preview. Here's a tip, save frequently during your work, coz my computer crashed 1 time when I'm working, and 3ds max has a really high requirement of the computer.
