How to Use the Spline Tag to Simulate a Chain in C4D

Darkins Digital shows how you can simulate a chain without using Gravity in Cinema 4D.

A chain offers some efficiency challenges when it comes to dynamics in 3D. That is likely why there are more than a few tutorials out there that cover the subject. With Maxon Cinema 4D, you can create a chain without using a gravity force, according to this new tutorial from Darkins Digital Gymnasium

The tutorial shows how you can use Spline Tag Dynamics to simulate a chain that doesn’t necessarily need a gravity force in the scene.

A while back, Motion Designer Michael Tierney showed a fast way to create a chain that builds one link and then uses the mograph module for the replications.
