Known as Elementza, Mario Brajdich is a Hamburg-based motion designer how often shares some of the techniques he uses. Especially hard-surface modeling techniques using Cinema 4D. His latest is a venture that shows how you can model a cloth cover for a group of cables. The technique uses a lot of simple tools in C4D: loop selections, selecting edges, stick and sew, reversing normals, and so on.
Of course, Cinema 4D’s cloth dynamics helps out quite a bit, simulating and creating the realistic details in the cloth cover. The trick is to come up with nice and clean helotry for C4D’s cloth solver to work with.
