Can you use Autodesk Inventer 11 to model? It would be really great as in my graphics class we are learning to use it and our teachers letting us pull programs off the computers :D

Thanks!

Well, you can probably model in it as long as you find a way to export it to the proper fileformat that is needed to use it ingame. I don't think you will be able to do that without converting the model in some other application ;)

I don't think that's really the kind of thing Inventor was intended for. It's similar to AutoCAD, right? You'd be better off using 3d software designed for producing 3d models, not schematics and prototypes.

Also, just because your teacher is letting you pull software off of the computers doesn't make it legal, so keep it to yourself. ;)

It usually is legal for educational purposes for otherwise copyrighted software to be distributed to students. For example, my university's license to use Matlab, a mathematical analysis software, allows for any student to download a complete working version of Mathcad onto their own machine and use it freely.

And not that I actually know anything about how to model, but I'd wager that this particular software, based on its design and purpose (science/engineering), uses some proprietary technique or code somewhere within itself that will make it not easily possible to export anything you do there to an unsupported filetype like what JKA would use. So as Inyri said, you are best simply applying what you learn here to one of the known modeling softwares used for JKA models :nodding:.

actually...... the school has a special license that allows students in the school to use it wherever :P meh, might as well get 3DS max 5 off it then?

Autodesk is the company that produces 3DS Max.
