Ropes, cables, wired, cords… maybe a string? Tyson is going to give a big brain dump on how to model some long lines, live!

Wiring harness with string.
A cable harness, also known as a wire harness, wiring harness, cable assembly, wiring assembly or wiring loom, is an assembly of electrical cables or wires which transmit signals or electrical power. The cables are bound together by a durable material such as rubber, vinyl, electrical tape, conduit, a weave of extruded string, or a combination thereof.
Commonly used in automobiles, as well as construction machinery, cable harnesses provide several advantages over loose wires and cables. For exam...
Can you ask Tyson if he wants to model my model railroad swithing panel please?
After we stopped the stream, in our post discussion, Matt had an idea that I wish I had shared as well.
When you use Helix along curve, you can create a path by NOT creating a tube. So, by creating a slower spiral path using Helix along curve, then using Follow-Me, we get another interesting cable option. It’s not a twisted cable, but still fun.
I found the Loc Line image you referred to
Someone asked about chain. A couple of examples here:
I managed to create this using Helix along Curve (Extn.) along a line - rotate/copy 10 of the to make a straight rope and then TrueBend (Extn.) to bend the rope. Thought you might like to know!
Boom! Great approach, I gotta go try TrueBend. Thanks
FYI - its by ThomThom (the one I used but its limited in that you can only “bend” in one direction (but you can bend the already bent one more times!).
Thanks great information!
