View Full Version : segmented cable/wire

10 October 2005, 05:57 AM
Hi guys....
Gotta problem....

I want to generate wire. I use cylinder then use path deform to form it.

I want to make it segmented, Is there any way i can make a neat segmented cable without extruding it each segment?

thx for any reply....
sorry for bad english...

Sure... try spline.. create a line then set it to renderable / display render mesh and crank up the thickness a little. Convert to Editable poly or mesh and there you go.. ready to select rings of faces for extrusions and segmenting.
