The Grand Canyon in Arizona is a vast geological formation with a deep, steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River. It spans 277 miles and reaches a depth of over a mile. The canyon is surrounded by the Grand Canyon National Park and is located in the Colorado Plateau region of northern Arizona. The Grand Canyon is known for its intricate network of cliffs, plateaus, and rock formations that reveal millions of years of geological history. The diverse landscape ranges from high plateaus and mesas to deep gorges and steep canyons, with a variety of rock types and colors visible in the stratified layers of rock.
3D model of Grand Canyon terrain was created in Cinema 4D R23 based on a high-polygonal STL model.
The height of the 3D model was increased by 10 times, so that the relief did not seem very flat. You can adjust the height as you want.
UV-map in frontal projection was created for correct texture mapping. Textures can be edited in Photoshop and returned to Cinema 4D.
The built-in physical renderer in Cinema 4D was used to produce the images.
Grand Canyon DEM
The elevation map is used to get information about low and high parts of relief.
Grand Canyon Texture
Texture is high resolution in TIF format.
