The MaxDistance property of a BillboardGui sets how far away in studs that billboard can be from the camera and still be drawn. If the camera and billboard are moved further apart than the maximum distance, then the billboard will not be visible regardless of any other properties of the billboard or any GUI objects it contains. The default value of this property is infinity

If this value is set to less than or equal to 0 then the maximum distance will be treated as infinite and the billboard will always be drawable.
