Using Hang Curves
- Download then Open up hangcurve.blend
- ⇧ Shift Select the two default planes.
- So both objects are selected.
- In the Text Editor makehang.py will already be open.
- Press Alt/p to run the script.
- The default curve is made.
- You can now add two or even 1 more object.
- Select two Objects, Run the script again for multiple curves.
- In the text editor you will notice comments in Green
- Also Variables are listed in Blue.
- You can experiment changing the Blue Variables.
- To adjust the Size, Gravity, Thickness & much more.
- Start with minor changes, then experiment for different results.
- It is good practice with Text editor scripts to save a copy of the .blend.
- So you can save your changes without harming the original file.
- If you can't see the new Curve, go in wire mode "Z" select all the vertices, press "W" and "Set Radius" leave it to 1 and press Ok.
- In the Wiki writer's opinion always have Python Installed on your computer when using scripts. http://www.python.org/
- Python & Plugins forum at Blender Artists.
