Creating a 3D Print Material in Cinema 4D

3D prints from 3D printers such as the Formlabs’ Form 2 have interesting properties which I tried to recreate in Cinema 4D as a material study. I analyzed real prints to recreate the plastic look, subsurface scattering affecting thinner parts, horizontal layer lines from the printing, and the very subtle rounded edges with slight imperfections.

These renders, images, materials and all other assets are made for educational purposes only as part of my material study and are not made for Formlabs or used for commercial purposes.
