Hello, I am trying to figure out how to create 2 sets of cables or wires.
I tried created a path that I wanted the wire to follow, and a wire object, but wasn't sure how to get the wire object to bend to the path (if that is the right way to do this). The second cable/wire I need to create is basically the same wire object, but spooled in a neat circle. I am using LW7.5.
I would appreciate any assistance. Thank you. Michael Iverson

Put the path as a background layer and in the foreground layer create a flat disc at the start of the path, then use the rail extrude funcion (i think its in the multiply tab? well that or the construct tab) and it will extrude the disc along the path to create the wire :)

there's this new nifty plug at flay.com called RT_Pipes.lsc.. pretty cool. very easy to use and somewhat interactive. very fun and useful. check it out.. it just got released so it should be at the front page still.
