free plant models for cinema 4d

I have become quite interested in developing plants using C4D, especially with Xfrog. This page makes some plant models, converted to polygons in case you don't have Xfrog, available for download. Just be aware that they are likely to be fairly high-poly; I'm not expert enough with Xfrog yet to produce good-looking, low-poly plants!

 

Download nettle

The stinging nettle is a common hedgerow plant well known by kids everywhere. This model includes two bitmapped textures for the leaves. Weight is about 1800 polys.

Download Dandelion

The dandelion is a common weed plant in lawns and hedgerows. This download includes three models and high-resolution textures. The models range from about 2,700 to 7,600 polys.

It's quite a large download due to the texture size.

Download Rubber plant

A rubber plant as a potted house plant. Weighs in at 2250 polys so it's not plygon-heavy but still looks quite good in closeups. Has different textures for the front and rear of the leaves.

Plant pot not included (but hey, how difficult is it to model a plastic plant pot!).

Download the Generic shrub

A model of what you might call a 'generic shrub' - that is, not an actual plant but something you can use when you just want a simple shrub in the background. Built with Xfrog. Weighs in at just over 6000 polys so it's not too heavy while remaining reasonably detailed.

The model is set up so that if you want to, using it a Vray proxy should work without problems.

Download the grass

This is a simple but fairly detailed model of an ornamental grass stem, built with Xfrog. Weighs in at under 1000 polys so you can have a lot in a scene without causing problems.
