Connecting 2 curved lines with L1S
« on: May 29, 2020, 03:19:07 PM »
Hi! I have to model 2 round aluminium post that are curved, but not at the same location.Then link them with vertical ropes. (it's hard to explain, please see the attached image..)
I would like to know if there is a way to choose the length of the ropes by selecting a "border" segment (top aluminium post)?
Any idea how to solve this?
thanks

Unfortunately not with RailClone.

I finally was able to achieve what I wanted by applying a NormalizeSpline modifier on my Spline (to choose the amount of rope), duplicate the spline and apply a CrossSection Modifier..
