Building a cage


(MoreK) #1

Hi!
Any tips for building up a cage like construction (with lot of wire)? I could use “wire” (render only edges) in Material options, but you can’t control thickness of wire, can you?!

Hi
You could use a bezier curve with another as Bevel object. Make the beveled child to a straight line out of several vertices and set the line to DupliVerts in anim buttons. Three copies of this, two of them rotated around x and y axis by 90°, respectivaly.
The result might look like this. (needs 3 min)
