3ds Max 2013 Question

Would anyone be able to point me in the right sort of direction on how to recreate something like this in 3ds Max:

Its the diagonal segment I’m trying to recreate, as i already understand some basic aspects of modelling but cannot seem to find out how to do the diagonal slats. Thanks.

114 views and still nothing? Come on guys, someone must have the knowledge to share to a starter.

I think you can make a rectangle and rotate it

Thanks, ill go give it a go and ill get back to you if it works or not.

Iv followed your advice and this what iv come up with, i believe I’m along the right tracks, but I’m just wondering what do with the overlapping sections?

Here is a screenshot to show you what I mean:



I’d add an edge loop so you can make it fit properly within the corners.

Would you be able to go into more detail or point me in the direction of a tutorial as edge looping the top part does nothing. Thanks.
