I'm trying to do a project for a friend where I need to make a 3D visualization of a structure that is made of wire (i'm just using a nurbs curve for that) and possibly a hundred or so balloons attached to the wire. Can someone suggest the best approach for doing this? My original plan was to just put them in one by one, but that seems like its gonna take too long an be incredibly inefficient. Using an array won't work either because the wire is curved to form different shapes. I also though about particle systems, but I cant find a practical way of implementing. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
