Cinema 4D Tutorial – How to Create a Dynamic Spring

In this thrilling tutorial we look at creating a dynamic spring that actually shows in the render and works with the dynamics system. This came about after I was creating an exploded locking mechanising for an advert. Cinema has the spring connector which works wonderfully, however it doesn’t show in the render. In order to get round this I created a helix spline with a sweep nurbs and then tied that to the position of the top part of the spring. Hey presto a working spring that shows in the render and is completely dynamic! Check out the example below for a real quick idea of what I mean.

Dont forget that I love seeing the stuff you guys create, if you use this for anything be sure to stick it on my Facebook page or my Twitter!

    Hey Rory,

    Love your tutorials. Really useful techniques!
    I was just doing this tutorial because I need a sign to drop down from a spring. Everything was going great until the spring render. I did the little expresso trick and it worked…except it sends the spring in the opposite direction of the object that is falling. I’ve tried flipping the helix, inserting a range mapper to reverse the position data but it’s just not working. Any help or tips would be much appreciated.

    Thanks again and look forward to the next one.
