Programming a Suspended Bridge


Hello! I’m currently studying programming in maya (using python), and one of our latest assigments is:

“Given two points in the space in format [(x1, y1, z1), (x2, y2, z2)], generate a suspended bridge. The bridge must begin and finish the points provided as parameters to the function, increasing or reducing the number of planks (not the bridge ladder) and necessary vertical strings, and auto-adjusting the length of the horizontal support strings of corresponding form.”

What does it mean, exactly? And how should I proceed?

Thank you!
