Free Cinema 4D Model: Caduceus

Just finished modeling this caduceus model for a medical animation I’m working on and releasing it for free as a “thank you” to this awesome motion graphics community I’m proud to be a part of.

Gold texture and HDRI/environment map is included.  This file is compatible with R12 & above and I also included an FBX, .3DS and an .OBJ file for those with R11 and below or any other 3D software.  And an added bonus, a C4D and OBJ format that is After Effects and Element ready, so you can use this inside of After Effects and with VideoCopilots’ “Element” plugin!

    It’s a great model with nice textures EJ and huge thanks for sharing it. By no means you should take what follows as a critique of your work :)
    Quoting from Wikipedia (
    The caduceus is sometimes mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine and/or medical practice, especially in North America, because of historical and widespread confusion with the traditional medical symbol, the rod of Asclepius, which has only a single snake and no wings.

      Thanks very much Ludek! And yes it’s very interesting where we get some of our symbols from!

    Thanks for sharing this EJ.
    Interesting use of a luminous plane in front of the area light.

    It’s perfect for a project I’m working on.
    Do I have your permission to use it commercially?

    • eyedesyn

      You have my permission! Thanks for asking! :) Glad you’ll find it useful!

      Thanks again, EJ.
      Here’s a link to the animation where I used your caduceus model. It’s around Hippocrates’ neck 😉
