3ds Max: Wires.. Not Wire Frame.. Wires

Recommended Posts

Good day'

 

I was wondering if anyone here knew of a plugin or some sort of really, really effective technique to make wires? Splines and such is taking too long as is really annoying :sleep:

 

 

 

I have to create a lot of wires and doing them individualy and then putting waves, bend etc into it is a really slow and gureling proess in which I'd love to avoid :lol:

I want them all to be slightly different... so it looks more natural

make a regular spline, and a circle.

slide both of them under a "sweep nurbs" object, with the circle above the freehand spline.

 

 

 

 

enjoy =)

 

 

maybe there might be something similar with 3ds, it's been ages since i used it, back when version 5 was "new".

i've never actually done it, but getting a long thin cylinder to follow a nurbs spline path is one easy method...
