make a multi-linked hose
show user profile  msimecek
i'm trying to figure out a way to link the vertex's of a line to multiple geometries.

i need to have one end linked to one geometry while the other end is linked to another geometry.

this way when i move the geometries they'll always be connected.

any ideas?

you could put point helpers where u want the connections to be, and use skin to link the verts to those helpers.. sounds like some pretty basic rigging without knowing anything else about the setup

I had to create hoses/cables for a robotic arm. I used spline IK. Worked great.
