Modeling a Rib Vault Type Ceiling

This video is a quick tip showing how to model a rib vault type ceiling in Cinema 4D R13. It was inspired by a 3D model I found on the Internet as well as by the Residenz in Munich, Germany, which is a vast building complex that has a number of colonnades with ceilings like the one I'm building in the tutorial.

Requirements: C4D R13 Prime.

Please note that a basic knowledge of Cinema 4D is required to be able to follow this tutorial. While the modeling as such is pretty basic and I do explain everything I'm doing step by step, I'm using both default and custom shortcuts for most of the modeling.
