Anyone who practises 3D art knows it can be an incredibly time-consuming process, so help in the form of free textures and ready-made, free 3D models is always welcome. In recent years, a large number of websites have appeared offering just that and, while you have to pay for the majority of them, there are many free 3D models online too. You just have to know where to look. Subscription offer Here, we scoured the web for resources and found a selection of free 3D models, which will hopefully save you time on your next project. 01. The famous ancient Egyptian bust of Queen Nefertiti is the subject of an ongoing ownership dispute between Germany and Egypt, and is on display in Berlin's Neues Museum where photography of it is prohibited. 02. 3D artist Joren Kandel runs PixelLab, a blog focused on motion graphics. 03. Get your 3D characters out and about on this nifty free road bike model from TurboSquid. 04. 05. Need to accesorise your characters? 06. 07. 08. 10. 11. 13. 14.

7 Herramientas de modelado indispensables en Cinema 4D – 3DimentionalModelar objetos en Cinema 4D puede llegar a ser increíblemente rápido si sabes cómo usar las herramientas apropiadas. A continuación les presento una lista con 7 herramientas que, en mi opinión, son indispensables al momento de modelar. 1. Object Attributes Los atributos de objeto ofrecen funciones útiles para personalizar un primitivo. Aquí se pueden establecer el número de polígonos, tamaño o incluso colocar un biselado a los bordes del objetos. El primitivo Sphere, por ejemplo, nos permite escoger entre seis diferentes topologías que nos pueden servir como punto de partida para varios objetos, por ejemplo, con un hexaedro podemos empezar a modelar una cabeza sin tener mover puntos desde cero. Una vez que hemos configurado los atributos para nuestro primitivo, tenemos que editarlo presionando la tecla C, sólo así podremos empezar a extruir polígonos y a mover puntos. 2. Estas herramientas permiten añadir nuevos polígonos a una malla existente. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
Welters Cinema 4D pluginsA mesh smoothing plugin based on several variants of the discrete Laplacian on triangulated surfaces. Available as deformer and command plugin. Just put the deformer under a polygon object to make it smooth. It supports restriction and weighting by vertex maps and it also supports the falloffs that were introduced with Mograph. The dialog variant supports smoothing of vertex maps! The amount parameter controls the strength of smoothing. The method is based on the paper by Desbrun, M., "Implicit Fairing of Irregular Meshes using Diffusion and Curvature Flow", Proceedings of SIGGRAPH 99. Furthermore there is new custom cone-shaped falloff type which is quite versatile but also a bit inconvenient to use.
Top 5 Cinema 4D plugins | 3DIn this week's top 5 we'll be taking a look at some of the most useful plugins available to Cinema 4D users. There are loads to choose from, so we've taken delved a little deeper and found five of the best that any C4D user can benefit from: 01. Zblur This is a top class plugin. 02. A great set of spline tools from C4D_Jack. 03. The Riptide plugin from Spanki's Prop Shop may not be exciting but it's certainly useful. 04. We all love blowing things up and watching the pieces fall dynamically to the floor and there are many plugins out there that do this, but Nitroblast from nitro4D is probably the most fully-featured. 05. Motionworks, developer of MovieType is new on the scene. These five plug-ins will add to your efficiency in Cinema 4D, while being both entertaining and in some cases adding features that Cinema 4D should have anyway. Go and check them out and if you decide to try any of them say we sent you!
