My friend Tobias Larsson modeled a really detailed model of the Cryptex from the Da Vinci Code and is sharing it with all of us! You should check him out on Vimeo here: vimeo.com/tacoindian There are some renders of the Cryptex as well as a little demo video showing how the stepping works. The C4D model is rigged and animated!
Make sure to drop Tobias a thank you in the comments or on his Vimeo page. And like always, if you want to share anything with the community, just let me know and I can help spread the word: [email protected] Thanks Tobias!
