What’s PARA 3D?
3DS MAX plug-in
1PARA 3d is a scripted plug-in for 3DS MAX which enables users to create parametric digital models and animations using all excessive modeling features of 3DS MAX and additional controllers available in the plug-in.
Easy to learn
2PARA 3D is designed to be as easy and user friendly as possible, and therefore early on it was decided to keep the layout and system similar to Material Editor in 3DMax, so as to cut out any learning/training period once beginning to use this new software. Everything can be done by simply dragging and dropping the chosen tool(s) and manipulating the values to whichever degree is required.There is an almost unlimited combination of tools that can be merged.
Complex yet Light
3PARA 3D has been designed to be as efficient as possible, having as little memory usage as possible. We have managed to make it much liter than Parametric Array 1, even though we now have 31 controllers as opposed to only 5 in the original! Furthermore, with the need to be more user friendly, PARA 3D no longer requires the user to have any programming background. PARA 3D is a 0-code-program!
Is PARA 3D for me?
4PARA 3D is the antithesis to the traditional approach of Architects borrowing software from Animators. Instead it is designed primarily for Architects and Designers. This is shown by the fact that no programming background is required whatsoever, and anyone should be able to use it; as a result of its ease of use. PARA 3D is very useful for various other disciplines including motion graphics and visualization. However, due to the power hungry and speed conscious applications that Animators invariably require, a quicker version of PARA 3D is currently under development. More updates to follow soon.

About Ali Torabi,
Hello there, I’m available!
My name is Ali Torabi. I born and studied in Tehran/Iran. I’m an architect and very much passionate about design and fabrication and the new approaches to these subjects. In 2007 when I left my country to come to Dubai I started my own research in Parametric design and generative modeling. Today, I’m proud to announce “Para 3d” as a result of 5 years intense work in this topic. Beside my research program which was only supported by our generous clients I was also working as senior and principal design architect for local and international firms in UAE. Recently I feel it’s time for me to join people who are more interested in my specialty. If you are thinking that my skills in BIM, generative modeling , parametric design , computer programming and optimization methods can help you to improve your office performance then I have good news for you! I’m available ! Please drop me a message and I’ll be sending you my portfolio + CV.
