This script generates random nested extrusions, creating a “greebled” look on any mesh. The generated polygons are constructed entirely by the Python code.

  1. Why oh why are these ‘tutorials’ not beeing updated???
    IT DOES NOT WORK! Period!
    The only thing you can do is to merge Extrudifier.c4d within your existing project BUT THAT IS NOT A PLUGIN WAY TO DO IT so do not call it a plugin.
    Since version R20, Cinema4D is not my preferred tool anymore …

    • Odd rant bro! It is not a plugin. you just replace the object in the main null.
      i hope this helps.

  2. Really nice Plug-in. Thank you Edd Biddulph for creating this amazing script.

  3. This thing is just amazing… I’m planning to do some crazy stuff at work with it!!

  4. This is awesome, real time-saver for sure. Can create all kinds of neat “sci-fi” panels. Thank you!
