Oh man do I have an epic freebie today. This is a labor of love by Ryan Bechtel, who is a motion designer in Chicago. Ryan built out a Cinema 4D mechanical Solar System which is called an Orrery. You should do a little reading up on the history of these, it’s pretty fascinating! Anyway, Ryan rigged up the entire thing with a ton of Xpresso controls for speed, size etc. so make sure to dig into the Xpresso to learn about how it’s made. Huge thanks to Ryan!

New freebie today from my friend Remco van der Meer! It’s a low poly version of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1, which is a cultural icon! The model comes in two versions. One is an Arnold Render for Cinema 4D version, and the other is a straight Physical render version for Cinema 4D. Alternatively you could delete the roof rack and crazy ghost busting paraphernalia and use this as a regular low poly vehicle. Oh, and if you need more low poly vehicles/elements check out our Low Poly Scenery Pack and our Low Poly Explainer Pack. They’re pretty rad. Enjoy, and huge thanks to Remco!
New free model created by Remco van der Meer! Included are two Cinema 4D industrial light fixture models. They’re textured for Cinema 4D physical render. Feel free to use for personal or commercial use, just not for re-sale. Also, check out or Industrial Pack if you need more of this type of model. Enjoy!

I have a beauty of a free model today which was created by my friend Rodrigo Ortega. He’s an art director/designer based in Shanghai and he modeled a gorgeous traditional Chinese sky or paper lantern. It comes with multiple versions: .c4d with included hair objects, the .c4d file but baked down in case you don’t have the hair module and also a .obj and .fbx. Huge thanks to Rodrigo. Make sure to give him a follow and thank him over at his Instagram: instagram.com/rodortega_
A sky lantern, also known as Kongming lantern or Chinese lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. In ancient China, sky lanterns were strategically used in wars for military communication (transmitting secret messages) or lighting the sky when laying siege on the city at night. Later they were incorporated into festivals like the Chinese Mid-Autumn and Lantern Festivals. Thanks again Rodrigo!
I have a really great freebie for you today. It’s a free sampler from our Octane Texture Pack 2: Architecture Edition. It has 5 textures from the pack: natural wood, plastic painted metal, procedural glass, rigid copper and semi-polished stone.
The above image is textured with only the five textures from the free sampler, so you can see how versatile they are! (Image by Alessandro Boncio).

New free model by Simon Spencer-Harvey. He has been killing it! Today’s is a Edelkrone camera dolly model for Cinema 4D. It’s the Surface One, but I think it’s now updated and called the Dolly One if I’m not mistaken. You can learn more about it here: https://edelkrone.com/products/surfaceone It has the flex tilt head attachment too.
All you need now is to find is a good 3D model of a camera to stick on top. We have a free camera pack in our freebies download section, hint hint.
