Creating a 3D blueprint in Cinema 4D

Ever since Adobe added Cinema 4D to After Effects I've been trying to use it more and more in my motion graphics work. Every now and then I'll discover something cool & I just can't help experimenting with it!

The most recent thing I've found is the "Cel Render" effect (Edit render settings > Effects > Cel Renderer). Enabling this function allows you to render the edges and outlines of an object as you'll see in the example renders below.

I decided to whip up a quick example to demonstrate the effect, one which I could see myself using in a short film perhaps (blueprints of the rebel base you say?)

A fire escape ladder I spent a bit too much time on. You'll notice there are joins down the ladder; rather than create one long cube I decided to create segments as it makes it look a bit more interesting when it's rendered out:

And finally the models in gif form!
