To give you some sort of starting point.

Imagine you are a builder and I ask you "how is a house made"

there are so many types of houses, materials and details.

If you are a beginner, start with boxes, build your walls from them.

use a plane for the floor

post some pics

there are a LOT of ways you can do this but given the noobness of your question, start with boxes

Press F1 - its the help files


come back and ask questions, you have to work hard to learn but if you are young, it will come easy :)

Thank you very much..

I read some tutorials...

There is AEC component, I can draw some walls with them..
But also Boxes I can draw...
Also as I read, I can use lines and extrude them... etc.. there are many ways I think..

But There is a problem with the pxels..
In the perspective view, Top view.... the pixels too much small I mean,

If I draw the design according to the default of pixels when it is open,
the area is too small in order to work in it..

Orthogonal draws many pixels around it..

Which one is is true in order to work it..

Maybe I must convert pixel settings ?

by "pixel settings " maybe you mean units ? if I have a blueprint of a building I will load it into the top veiwport background and then use that to draw out eh size of each room. as davious has already siad do a few tutorials theres loads online.
good luck and dont forget topost up some wip's :)

1 way i do this kind of job is using corel or another vectorial program to make myself a 2d plan of the building seen from top. after which, if exportin it as illustrater 8 from corel, you can import it in max, and extrude it. this way u got the walls. if u get any errors when extruding, it means u dont have all your vertics welded together.

some of the tutorials described home design with walls..
But there is no ceiling. How can I add ceiling for the house plan..

I have not found any 3d home design tutorial with
boxes... most of them use walls..

But how can I add the ceiling to the house plan...

"But how can I add the ceiling to the house plan... "

if you are going to view just inside the room, you could use a plane.
or a box
or a rectangle and extrude it

There was a great tutorial from Evermotion (veeeeeery old) on making a kitchen from step 1. Try finding it. Don't use the vray settings those are cavemen old settings

One was from Aversis, but I guess he has removed it.

I am going to use walls.. Extrude then use plane for ceiling..
I have planned open office design...

I have diffuculty in zooming and view ,inside room because of walls..
Actually I can see the house plan from top but I have diffuculty zomming inside..If there is a plane..
As I read ceiling layer (plane) could be hidden in order to plan easily. ok..

But I cannot decide,may be the boxes better..
I cannot go inside the box. Should I use many boxeswith thin width for walls..

I cannot decide..
I want to use cm unity..

Also I have diffulty in unity of the house..

Is there any tutorial step by step explained interior design ,using boxes..
All of them I found draws only walls, but they do not show how can I go inside the house from walls in front.

would you hep me..?

thank you..

lol thanks to the site, not mine :P

2 very interesting parts are the way the curtain is modeled and the bed sheet. Very nicely done.

Girish, is fine :)

thanks to everybody :P

I will scipped it.. good tutorial I think... every step is included..
I hope I will complete the modeling and animation..

As I read, I must put the camera and when define the camera path,
then the viewer can focus on the area..

I can zoom and walktrough the area by this way easily..
