How to Use Workplanes for Modeling in Cinema 4D

Athanasios “Noseman” Pozantzis shows how to use the Workplane in Cinema 4D, which can help with modeling tasks.

Modeling at origin is commonplace, but there are times when you’d like to model at an arbitrary axis, and that’s where Cinema 4D’s Workplanes come in.

Workplanes allow you to move the grid into positions to model new objects in place. The quick tip shows you how to use the Workplane tools to adjust the World Workplane to do more effective Modeling without moving your Objects.

A previous quick tip showed how to make the scene cleaner by having the Workplane draw behind your objects rather than in front of objects. Visit that tutorial here.
