That may have been it, but I think there's something more tongue-in-cheek with the teapot.
It's not only seen in Max, but pretty much every 3D software has a teapot in its tutorials.

I thought that it was something like it came from a geek contest where they were trying to conceive of the most complex parametric model back in the day - and they came up with the teapot.
It's funny that it's still used as an icon in Max.
PS - Tell John hi for me, Sona. He won't know who the hell I am, but what the heck.

Good to be here womby. I think I had a sailnet account years ago.
just what I need. Another sailing forum.
I used to know the story behind the teapot. I'll have to give it some thought (and drop John Walker an e-mail ). I used to be a reseller of 3DS (back on v3 DOS).

Welcome to Sailnet Sons......good to see your name pop up. Must be the first time I've managed to drag one of the anarchists over here though some of us do forum hop.
Thanks for filling MP in on the software. Me I know nothing about it. All my design work was done on DrawingBoard 2.1

Sanadora, that is beautiful work. I have worked with 3d modeling for years as a hobbyist, started with 3d Studio running under DOS. Your level of work is not easy to reach.
Thanks for posting the link to the images. And thanks for inspiring me.
