Making a kitchen table in Cinema 4D

welcome to

Here is a nice cherrywood table for your Cinema4D scenes.

Hello again. This time, we will accomplish a kitchen table, that can be acclimated in accomplished viz. This archetypal can aswell be acclimated in games, optimized, of course. You can get the actual here

We would usualy charge some references, but back this is absolutely a all-encompassing table, we can accomplish it after them.

No affairs are appropriate for this project, so we can activate appropriate away.

First, we accept to accomplish the table top, collapsed console that is acclimated to abode altar on it. We will accomplish a annular table, so accomplish a cylinder.

Give it ONE acme segment, and leave the blow at default. Accomplish it editable. Give it the afterward values: Size X: 600; Size Y: 9; Size Z: 600. Now we accept a collapsed panel.

We charge to add a little added detail to the console . So, baddest average ring of polygons, and calibration them up. Stop ascent them if you get abreast the edge.

What to select:

How abundant to scale:

Hold 'Shift' and baddest the close polygons (those that are amidst by the polys you already selected). Now go to Structure>Extrude (or artlessly columnist 'M' and again 'T'), bang and annoyance up a bit.

Click and annoyance again, this time about bisected of the antecedent boot height.

Top panel is now done. Now to make the base, which in real life holds it together. We can make the base entirely out of primitives. Insert a cube in your scene. Make it editable and give it following values: Size X: 16; Size Y 21; Size Z 321. Position it as on the images below:

Press 'Ctrl + C' to archetype this object. Press Ctrl + V to adhesive it. Move it appropriate until it gets to the aforementioned ambit from the centermost as the original.

Paste already again. Rotate anew created article 90 degrees on H axis. Using the top view, position the article as so:

Now archetype that object, and adhesive it. Move it down to accomplish a bankrupt frame. Don't anguish if they are not absolutely aligned, just be accurate not to accomplish them overlap, or clip, anniversary other.

That is the abject done. Now for the legs. The legs are usualy abundantly busy on this blazon of tables, so we accept to adorn them to. The best wway to do this are splines and the 'Loft' function. But, if we do it that way, the account of our archetypal will be smaller, because we won't be able to use it in amateur for example. Thus, we are traveling to use box clay technique. We will alpha of with a butt that has few abandon (8 or beneath is an optimum for games), appearance it up, and again administer a aggressive nurbs modifier to it, so it gets softer and added realistic.

Ok, beneath talk, added work! Make a cylinder. Abandon = Rotation Segments, so abatement that amount from 36 to 8. Also, change ambit from 200 to 12.5 m and acme to 275.5. Place the top in the gap amid two confined of the base. Like this:

Of course, adjust the top of the leg with the basal of the panel.

The amount of acme segments is enought to accomplish the leg absolutely detailed. We just charge to rearange them first. Activate 'Select Tool' and uncheck 'Only baddest arresting elements'. That will accredit you to baddest vertices that are not visible, but accept to be selected.

To abridge the process, i drew a simple contour of the leg, and we are traveling to accomplish it like that. I put it in top res, so it will be easier to chase it.

Now to amount up the angel in Cinema 4D. Go to appropriate viewport and go to Edit>Configure. Then to Accomplishments tab, and bang on the button with three little dots. Once you amount it up, play with account and admeasurement ethics until you position the accomplishments angel to about fit your table leg. It doesn't charge to be exact, it just charge to accord you a clue about area to position vertices.

Now select, move and calibration loops of vertices until you get something like the angel below. But remember, if scaling, use compatible scale. To calibration uniformly, clik the average box of the accoutrement and annoyance it. Also, don't move the vertices in any administration added that Y arbor (green axis). You will eventually run out of vertices, so you will accept to cut the cylinder. Go to Structure and accept Knife tool. In the approach bead down account accept 'Loop' and cut some added acme segments. Try to get as abutting to this as accessible (I removed the accomplishments angel so you could see the cobweb better):

And from angle view:

Now archetype the leg three times and position them to the anles of the base.

If you are authoritative the table for a game, stop here. It is finished. But, if you wish a astute render, backpack on.

First, we charge some charwoman up to do. Baddest all boxes that accomplish the base, and accumulation them. Name the accumulation "Base". Then baddest all four legs and accumulation them too. Now we can dispense them added easily.

Make a aggressive nurbs article and admit 'Legs' accumulation into it. You will apprehension that the legs are now abundant softer. Do the aforementioned with the panel. Looks good, doesn't it?

Now administer the copse actual that is accessible to download and enjoy!
