View Full Version : ICE: Easiest way to create webs of strands/ ropes/ strings?

08-09-2010, 08:58 PM
Hey guys

I'm curious about how to do this in the most efficient way with ICE:

Let's say you wanted to built a tree made of web of strands/ strings and with a little bit of gravity applied so the strings appear more natural (almost a bit like spider webs).

It doesn't have to be a tree necessarily, could be a car or any other object.

How would i go on about this if i had the particular object as meshes? And how to create a nice looking interconnectivity between the strings?

Any suggestions appreciated!

Helge Mathee started a cobweb challenge on the old XSI community site. You might get some ideas from that thread. It's archived on the area:
