About this blog

In this blog I'd like to share my free video tutorials with you. Most of my tutorials are about hard surface modeling, SDS modeling, and modeling using splines. I hope you'll enjoy the tutorials!

Simple wooden gazebo

Simple wooden gazebo

In this tutorial we are going to model a simple wooden gazebo in Cinema 4D. The object is based on a CAD model I found on GrabCad (https://grabcad.com/library) a while ago.  You can download a project file that contains the reference images needed for modelling here:    https://www.dropbox.com/s/njcfq2a0coitnox/WG project.7z?dl=0   I hope you'll enjoy the tutorial. Thanks for watching!   Cheers, contrafibbularities

R9.6 tutorial on modelling a building

R9.6 tutorial on modelling a building

This is a very old tutorial I recorded back in Cinema 4D Release 9.6 (it was entitled "Modelling Architecture in Cinema 4D").    I took it offline a long time ago as it was outdated and not very useful anymore. I still keep getting requests for it occasionally though, which is why I have decided to re-upload it again. Sending people video files or temporarily uploading them to some file hoster was a bit of a pain. Anyone who has lost their downloads from back then or wants to revisit t
150 Free Jigsaw Puzzles for C4D

150 Free Jigsaw Puzzles for C4D

Hi everyone,    Today, I'm releasing my free jigsaw puzzle library for Cinema 4D (R12 or newer).    The library contains 150 different jigsaw puzzles, sorted according to their shape. All puzzles are based on photo references and 2D graphics images I found on Shutterstock, Printerest, etc.   You can download the library here:    Jigsaw Puzzle Library File   There's a short video on the library you can watch on Vimeo:     
1800 Free Architectural Profiles for C4D

1800 Free Architectural Profiles for C4D

Hi everyone,    I'm sharing my Cinema 4D library of more than 1800 architectural profiles with you. It used to be a commercial product for a while, but as of now it is available for free. I made this libarary about 7 years ago in Release 13. It will NOT work in versions older than R12.    All profiles are based on real-world references and scaled to real-world dimensions. You can downlaod the library here:    https://www.dropbox.com/s/e4pshf0wast7919/arch_profi

HSE 03: Detailed SciFi Floor Panel

HS Excercise 03: Detailed SciFi Floor Panel:   In this 3.5 hour tutorial we will be modeling a highly detailed scifi floor panel. The object is based on a model from a kitbash set by Vitaly Bulgarov:    https://vitalybulgarov.com/3d-kitbash/sci-fi-floor-panels   We will be building a clean mesh from scratch, starting from a simple plane. I will show you my approach to modeling hard surface details, and how I integrate areas with lots of details into areas with littl

HS Excercise 2 (Time Lapse): Brick Fence

In hard surface modelling excercise number 2 we will be modelling a section of a brick fence. Currently there only is this time lapse version of the tutorial. I am planning on doing a full tutorial with voice over within the next couple of weeks, hopefully.    If you want to give it a try yourself, you can download the reference image I used at Shutterstock:    https://www.shutterstock.com/de/image-vector/garden-gateway-stone-pillars-forged-gate-160566293?src=DA1vBCj9XqyI0J2C
