Solid Modelling

Modelling with packages like 3DS Max is surface modelling. In surface modelling the surface of the object is defined, but the interior is hollow. Solid modelling provides for solid objects where the interior is defined as well as the surface. This facilitates cutting, shaping and assembling objects to form a model.

Solid modelling is typically done in packages like AutoCAD.
