The Pixel Lab

Shop for a shop: 3D objects By Ko Maruyama

The Pixel Lab

Shop for a shop: 3D objects

For several years, owner and designer Joren Kandel has been posting beautiful 3D models on his website: The Pixel Lab. In addition to several free models that are routinely posted on the website, The Pixel Lab has recently offered a bundle of wonderfully detailed 3D objects that will allow you to create a shopping scene.

The Pixel Lab (.net) currently offers MAXON CINEMA 4D models that can be used directly in MAXON's software.  Many of the models in previous bundles or other free models free come with textures that are specifically designed for the models, and this new Retail Display Pack is following the trend with great geometry and fantastic textures and materials.

The latest offering from the Pixel Lab is a huge library of objects that can be used to define a variety of markets.  While the high end packs offered from the company aren't free (as some of Pixel Lab models are), they are a very high quality of economic modeling and will definitely save you money and time so you can get on with the rest of your 3D design/animation.


The previously offered packs in the $50 range offer between 20 to 40 textured 3D models.  This pack is filled with over 90 models (and rigs) for the same price.  Yep - that's less than $2 per model! Some of the rigs contain multiple options and easy controllers for animation or creating unique combinations or iterations of the same library object!

If your CINEMA 4D work includes any kind of architectural design or reference - especially a supermarket / retail  space, get this. http://www.thepixellab.net/retail-display-pack-v1-launch

detailed textures are included

The pack includes multiple objects that you might find in a grocery store, convenience store/gas station store, pharmacy, cosmetics shop, or even small deli or coffee shop. AND BOOZE AISLE elements!!

PROS: These are beautifully modeled elements that would take you longer to begin modeling than the cost of all of these combined. Some are animation rigged or can be posed. All of the custome textures are very easily modified. If you were to use just one of these objects once, it can pay for the entire package.

CONS: The models currently work for MAXON CINEMA4D only. (but you can contact Joren for other formats)

HIDDEN BONUS: Many of these will work in CINEMA4D Lite (If the feature isn't supported in LITE, the default models will still load)
