FSX Certified

Compatible With: FSX (Intended for use with FS Design Studio v3.5)

Boolean Operations are one of the most powerful features of FS Design Studio. They let you "cut" your way through the surfaces to make doors and windows, for example.

Mastering boolean operations will take you a long way along the road to making superior models. Since performing these operations requires very long and complex calculations, they are often tricky to use.

To help you understand and become proficient with boolean operations, Adam Howe has written a step-by-step guide that demonstrates many of the techniques that he's discovered in designing new aircraft models. Since they are so complex, Adam shows you many of the obstacles that's he's encountered, ways to avoid these same errors and complete your aircraft and scenery models.

Book 3 picks up where Book 2 left off and includes the ending project files and examples from Book 2 so you can easily follow along.

Other Books in the Aircraft Design Guide series include:
  • Book 1: FS Design Studio Basics
  • Book 2: Modeling the Exterior
  • Book 4: Aircraft Animation
  • Book 5: Texturing the Model
  • Book 6: Creating the Virtual Cockpit
