Welcome to MAXON Labs

Ease of use and stability are key qualities of Cinema 4D. To achieve this, we invest extra efforts to thoroughly design and test anything we produce. Our engineers often develop ideas that stay on the shelf until we decide to bring a prototype to completion. Through MAXON Labs, this innovation can reach you faster.

All content provided on the labs is developed by MAXON, is free and provided as is. We make no promises to maintain the projects and they may be pulled out of the site at any time.


Scene Updater

Introduction With the upcoming Cinema 4D R20, the ability to load scenes, that got saved with Cinema 4D versions older than R12, will be removed. The plugin described herein is supposed to help users locate such scenes and, when running… Continue Reading

Lattice Plane

The Lattice Plane is a powerful yet easy-to-use deformer inspired by the FFD Deformer to arbitrarily reshape an object by influencing the generator’s control points located on a 2D cage. Whilst traditional FFD deformation (Wikipedia) is usually delivered starting from… Continue Reading

Py-ParametricTools is a very simple approach to parametric modeling. Based on an idea of my friend Noseman, Py-ParametricTools basically consist of a bunch of generator and modifier objects for a number of commonly used modeling tools. Nothing fancy and easily… Continue Reading

Coons Mesh

The Coons Mesh generator provides the user with a simple yet effective tool to enable free-form mesh development by defining the four side-curves enclosing a region in space. Usually found in CAD software, Coons Mesh is based on the Coons… Continue Reading
