Creating Mechanical Linkages With Xpresso, Dynamics, and IK in C4D

Julian Field shows how to put together a mechanical weather vane in Cinema 4D using Xpresso and more.

The Xpresso Mechanic Julian Field is at it again, showing how you can create complex mechanical linkages in Cinema 4D using Xpresso, Dynamics, and IK.

The tutorial shows how to build a mechanical weather vane. “The importance of grouping objects correctly is also illustrated here, along with the need to bake the dynamics in the necessary order.” Field says. “It’s a long one, but well worth taking the time!”
