How to create and animate a Slinky (or spring) in Cinema 4D using deformers and effectors in C4D.

This tutorial was requested by Scott (one of our awesome Members) who needed to animate a slinky for a client project he was working on with Cinema 4D.

Feel free to use it in your own projects royalty free!

If you make something cool with this technique, we’d love to hear about it in the comments section down below or via the contact page (you can also tag us on social and we might even feature your work!).
