3ds max 2020 tutorials Scene Layout Saving max template scene And now to verify that actually worked, I’m going to change my units. Go back into customized units set up, and set my units to U.S standard let’s say, click okay, and then reset the program. File. Reset. And I get a message, do you really want to reset? Yes. And now it’s reset. It loaded the maxstart dot max file but notice it doesn’t say maxstart dot max up here, it just says untitled. So that way we can’t accidentally overwrite the maxstart dot max file. Go into the customized menu again to unit set up and we’ll see that it’s set back to metric with centimeters. That’s all there is to that. Just save a file called maxstart dot max inside your current project’s scenes. And whenever you launch or reset 3ds Max, that file will be the template for the new empty scene.
