Batch name long chain of vertex groups

Hi, I am making a firehose which I will export and rig in another program. I want to assign vertex groups to each part of the hose, eg Hose, Hose01, Hose02, etc. I have started doing this manually, selecting a loop of faces, assigning a name, moving on to the next, but I am up to 30 groups and am not even halfway there. I know I can probably automate with a script, but can anybody give me some advice on how to do that?

Moved from “General Forums > Blender and CG Discussions” to “Support > Animation and Rigging”

Is there any reason why you’re not using Blender’s automated tools for creating and mapping your vertex groups?

So… What are you trying to do?

Yes. The reason is I don’t know about them. :slight_smile:

Now I am doing the same thing with a telephone cord. Can anyone help me out so I don’t have to name each section of the cord manually?
