Product Description

Cables Spline is a shape plugin for 3ds Max which gives users the ability to create suspended cables along cylindrical paths. In this video below you’ll see how to use the plugin and ways to create various bundles of cables.

Works for 3ds Max 2016 (Service Pack 2) or later.

The default settings use the Catenary Curve algorithm to properly control the shape of the draping cables, mimicking real world suspension.

    Hi – just bought it and got it running. All seems fine but can’t work out how you get a new spline to create onto an existing cylinder in the scene as you do at the start of the video? Tried with snapping both on and off, and also with autogrid on and off – nothing seems to work to get the new spline to automatically adhere to the scene geometry. Any ideas?

    • Add me on skype and I can walk you through it 🙂

    Placed the script in /scripts/srartup… But it’s stillö not working… Can’t find the script in Max 2017.

    • Would you like to do this over skype so we can resolve the issue easier?

    Any chance is could work with max 2014?

    • Sadly it’s not possible due to 3ds Max restrictions in 2014.

    Hi – I don’t have Skype and seeing as I’m in an entirely different hemisphere to you, I can’t see that being particularly practical. Is there another way you could help me use this because I just cannot figure this tool out. Every time I use it, it just randomly creates the spline object somewhere else in the scene and rotated 90 degrees in the wrong direction. Seeing as how I’m working on a scene *filled* with cables – this is a little bit frustrating. Please get back to me via email – I’ve sent a couple of support requests for this now.

    • I emailed you a response. I can help you setup your scene and get it working.
