In some free time while I was traveling, I put together a tutorial on one of the more useful features and one of the lesser known about modifiers, just thought I'd share. The first tutorial is a real simple demonstration of Booleans. The second tutorial isn't my doing, well at least not originally. I followed a tutorial on the gmax forums and the technique could be apllied to things here so I thought I share and I redid the tutorial. It is about the Lathe modifier, I've used it to model a few gun barrels and sure there is an easier way, but it's fun to experiment. Anyway you can download the tutorial here (http://files.filefront.com/gmaxtutsrtf/;5461268;;/fileinfo.html), if you want, it is in .rtf form. The basic explanation of Booleans is the one that most will find more useful. I'm also thinking about doing a lofting tutorial, but there is already a video lofting tutorial at the gmax forums and I still don't know how to really use it effectively yet.

Edit: I'm also trying to learn the ShapeMerge function, but we'll see if I have time.
