Today we have a free C4D model by John Burdock. John created a silver Galactic Axe or hatchet model. The silver has details etched into it based on the material/bump channel. You could also re-texture the handle and make it a wooden version pretty easily if you want that style. Feel free to use for personal or commercial use, just make to sure to thank John in the comments and also check out his work at epicjcreations.com Thanks for sharing, John!
I found a really rad free Xpresso rig for C4D by Mike Udin. It’s a handful of presets for audio waveforms. I love this stuff! Really handy rig to put in the library. Make sure to thank Mike. You can download it on his site here: mikeudin.net/2016/07/01/xpresso-rig-am-spline
My friend Noah Witchell put up a great tutorial and some free scripts for anyone who works with Python scripting or wants to learn. This video includes some really helpful resources for learning Python. Also, he has some great tips for creating something similar to Photoshop Actions where you can create a script to run through a multi step process in one click. Setting up scripts for anything you do frequently would be a great time saver. Anyway, hope you enjoy. Check out the tutorial, but make sure to go to the actual vimeo page where he has tons of links to scripts and other resources for learning. You can check that out here.
My friend Jim Field just keeps cranking out great models! Jim is the artist behind the sweet pocket watch model as well as a cottage house and Moor Park manor house we gave away awhile ago. Today he’s giving away a free Cinema 4D model of an evil motorcycle. Please make sure to thank Jim in the comments for his efforts and generosity!
Man oh man do we have a freebie today! This is created by my friend Rick Ellis, who has created some of our most popular free models. Rick created a Button Kit for Cinema 4D with dozens of different buttons, dials, knobs etc. for you to use in your projects. I love this kit, such a cool idea! Rick has been super generous so I encourage you to send him a little paypal donation for his efforts if you can. His paypal address is:[email protected]
The download is free for commercial or personal use. Make sure to thank Rick in the comments or over on his site, rickdellis.com
Yet another great free Cinema 4D model by Simon Spencer-Harvey. This one is another piece of architecture: a full modern wind tunnel C4D scene. Hopefully you can find some good use for it. Huge thanks to Simon. Enjoy!
We have a great new freebie for you today! It’s an architectural model of the Aeon Flux Wind Tunnel. This is a great 3D environment to put your objects in, or to use in a sci-fi or industrial type animation. Hope you find a fun use for it. This model was created by Simon Spencer-Harvey, so huge thanks to him for sharing. Enjoy!
Last week I posted a character model from Ace5Studios. They just wrote me to let me know that they have another free character model out as well. This one is a fully rigged Marvin model! If you’re interested in rigging/characters, download and play away, it’s a lot of fun. Thanks Ace5Studios!
