How to Rig a Coiled Cable System With Xpresso in C4D

Julian Field shows how you can rig a rise and fall lamp that has a bit of a spring system in it.

A new Cinema 4D Xpresso tutorial from Julian Field (the Xpresso Mechanic) shows how you can make a “rise and fall” lamp (this one has a coiled cable system) like the ones you could use in architectural renders.

The tutorial covers using Xpresso along with User Data and a Spline Wrap Deformer in C4D to create a coiled power cable in this case.
