Maxscript Cylindrical Weave

I am wanting to create script that automates the process of creating a cylindrical weave pattern. Like woven jackets that go on wires. Where should I start? I have the equations to create one, but don't know how I should go about it.

I want to be able to:
  • Control how many threads there are.
  • Diameter of weave.
  • Control diameter of each thread.
  • Control thread grouping. Like groups of 3 threads.
  • Control detail level.
  • Control variation in lengths. Like set a variation of 10%.
  • Animate the growth of the threads.
  • Control frequency at which the threads weave with each other. Like every 2 threads or whatever.
  • If possible, allow the weave to follow a path.

Here is an image of a weave I made manually to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

I'm mainly wanting to know how I should generate the threads, but any advice is welcomed. I am a maxscript novice.

Thanks guys.
