An Easy Way to Combine Cylindrical Objects in C4D

PolygonPen shows how you can combine cylindrical objects when modeling in C4D.

Hard surface models that seamlessly have one cylindrical shape merge into another, complete with a nice bevel, isn’t that complicated to pull off. Have a look at this tutorial from PolygonPen who shows how you can merge multiple cylindrical shapes into one object. PolygonPen demonstrates by creating a model of a telescope.

The tutorial also shows how you can change the pivot to better match animation characteristics when rigging the telescope.
