Autodesk 3ds Max

3DS Max is really the best tool for those looking to create mograph designs, 3D models for video games, VFX composites and virtual sets, or just to quickly mock up some product designs with rapid rendering that still looks good. It really starts to fall behind though when you get into animation tools like rigging or smooth surface models or higher end ray tracing renders. If you need something for full-on animated films or final pass production physics effects, then use Maya instead.

Procore

[Procure is] great for managing construction projects of varying size and complexity. Software can be used for bidding and management. Can also be used by field employees to help with distributing information to field supervision and to subcontractors. Having important project information at my fingertips has been a huge help with the fast pace of todays projects.

Pros

Autodesk 3ds Max

  • V-Ray 3ds Max is an awesome third-party plugin for architecture renders in 3ds Max.
  • Complicated models can be made in a simple way in 3ds Max also P-particles, M flow works better then before.
  • Interface is very easy to use. Very open, attractive, and very much ease of use for new users.

Procore

  • We use the drawings tool to manage our drawings. It keeps them organized and gives a detailed trail of revisions.
  • We use the specifications tool to manage our specifications. It keeps them organized and gives a detailed trail of revisions.
  • We use the RFI tool to manage our RFIs. It keeps a good record of all the RFIs throughout the project and the architect can respond within ProCore to answer the RFIs.

Cons

Autodesk 3ds Max

  • Rather expensive licensing.
  • Limited animation tools.
  • Outdated physics system.
Kevin Wolff | TrustRadius Reviewer

Procore

  • Procore's core project mgmt tools are not 100% fine-tuned. They are very slow to progress while Procore is trying to tackle market share in other related markets. The core tools seem to be [a] low priority for further development, for this reason, I suspect.
  • The email notifications are way too frequent and often do not have preference adjustments. They become white noise and are often ignored for this reason...not good for alerting project partners to important items on Procore.
  • It has not development reliable quantity takeoff tools. Most basic.

Procore has become integral to our business. There are no comprehensive solutions that could step in and fill the role. We have invested a significant amount of time fleshing out our Procore database. If we did not renew, that time investment would be lost. We have not identified a viable solution to the challenges Procore solves. Procore is dedicated to continually supporting Procore. We have invested in Procore as it is today and also what it is likely to become in the future.

I have non "techie" guys in the field who are using Procore on a regular basis and look to Procore for the updated information they need. Instead of phone calls they are able to get what they need right off most of the time.

If you are working in an area with little to no signal, Procore will still allow you to get in the system and use it fully and will then update once you are at a place with a strong enough signal. Whether it be with wifi or LTE cell phone reception.

Procore has instant customer support via chat. If you particular issue cannot be resolved via the chat feature, they automatically notify customer support and you are notified through out the process that they are working on your issue. If your issue is very involved they will reach out to you via email and /or by telephone to walk through the issue and what is being done to resolve it. I've never had an issue just go to a black hole with no follow up.

Training can be at times hard to follow and a little boring, but this is your best bet to get the software on track and deployed into the field. Procore's web materials and videos can be helpful but the MOST helpful is when you are using the software and have the live chat support function at your disposal.

The hardest part about the implementation of Procore was getting all of our subcontractors uploaded into Procore and getting the correct contacts in for bidding. All of this information was with different people throughout our company, so getting it all into Procore and making sure it was correct was quite a challenge and caused the most growing pains for us. It was one of the reasons we had to wait to implement bidding because we couldn’t take the risk of sending out RFPs to people that weren’t correct or weren’t going to use Procore.

Alternatives Considered

Autodesk 3ds Max

Complex models are very easy to make in 3ds Max compared to other software, as Autodesk provides safety and security for your data and there are always there to serve you better. My experience with Autodesk was remarkable and Upmarket integration with other plugins makes 3ds Max vast and have an easy interface so that any new person who is using for the first time can understand simply.
vijay kumar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Procore

We first utilized Procore because it was mandated by the Owner. However, after using it for a few years, I've found that it's my preferred platform. It works just as well (if not better!) than the other programs that I've used. It's typically more user-friendly.

once in awhile Procore is down for a period of time, its frustrating when it happens but doesn't tend to last long.

Return on Investment

Autodesk 3ds Max

  • Allows us to meet deadlines quickly - render times are minutes, not days.
  • Digs into profits due to licensing fees - just a single seat can set us back thousands.
Kevin Wolff | TrustRadius Reviewer

Procore

  • It has standardized the data we collect from the field - giving us clearer outcomes.
  • It has increased efficiency - allowed for more organization of data.
  • The saved time when searching through daily reports. Example: Quick easy reports allow to pull all delays fast.
