Maxon has launched a new effort to bring the development Cinema 4D to the forefront. Maxon Labs is a place where you can gain early access to new innovations and prototype tools for Cinema 4D.
Having a platform where users can access new tools and provide feedback on them is a great way to progress them while keeping in contact with the user base’s needs.
There are already a few tools on Maxon Labs. A Coons Mesh generator gives a simple way to enable free form mesh development by defining four sides of a shape with curves. There are also already a couple of tools for Team Render users, one that will let you use HTTPS, and the other is a Team Render Notifier.
Extrudifier is a python script that lets you create random nested extrusions in one shot. Great for creating “greebled” effects on any mesh.
Maxon Labs is definitely a step in the right direction, hopefully adding another way to bridge the gap between Cinema 4D development, an open and transparent development team, and the user base. Visit Maxon Labs and contribute.
