Hello,
I am currently using student versions of both 3ds max 2014 and AutoCad 2014. Like most people who build their own computers, i have started to accumulate spare unused parts and soon i will have enough to build a second (mid-range performance) computer.
I figured i would dedicate this spare computer to rendering while i create my models on my main one.
I would like to do this because some of my renders take up to 2-3 hours or even days to complete, and most of you who use these programs know that the entire computer goes incredibly slow making multitasking extraordinarily irritating.

So how do i go about doing this? The question im asking is how do i connect the spare computer to my main computer... so i can render on one, while i model & multitask on the other?

Thank you

Use the Backburner. It should be automatically installed with 3d studio.
There are plenty of tutorials on how to set it up (google and yt).

I didn't realize it was that easy. I thought for sure something like this would be slightly more difficult.

Cheers mate
