Quickest way to make a bunch of tangled hoses

I want to make a scene that involves lots and lots of hoses with semi-randomized paths that are tangled around each other in a way that looks natural. I mean lots. And the hoses will follow the general contour of the room, travelling up walls etc., but they need to have a randomized/non-repetitive look. I can’t think of any practical ways to approach this. Can anyone?

Check the post in animation nodes thread (+ few before).
Don’t know if there’s an addon, script… :o

Yeah, animation nodes can produce great tangled wire effects :slight_smile:
