Subdivision modeling is a very common technique used when making almost all big name games, movies, and CG pieces. It allows you to make hard surfaces with nice beveled edges and a very high polycount in a short amount of time.

In this tutorial, you will learn the very basics of subdivision modeling. How it works, the common tools used, keeping forms, and how to apply it to your models. This tutorial is targeted towards 3D Studio Max users, however the same concepts can be easily applied to any other 3D program.
