Creating the Circular Path
First, (if you haven't done so already), load or reset 3D Studio MAX.
In the top viewport, create a circle SHAPE.
This is a 2D shape, which you can access by going first into the CREATE toolpanel on the right, and pressing the SHAPE button at the top. Select the circle tool, and move your mouse cursor over to the TOP viewport.
Many of the 2D shapes and 3D objects in MAX are created using a click-drag method. Create the circle by LEFT mouse clicking in the middle of the viewport, hold it down and drag outwards to create the circle.
Make it around 60 units in size.
