I modified the ARingClone mcg to have a twist with it and end up with a rope maker. Basically, you create 1 really tall cylinder, apply Vu_mcgRope modifier to it and define how many strands of rope and the amount of twist. Apply a PathDeform to your rope to shape it with a spline.
That's it. Any questions...I'm just trying my hands on MCG for the first time. It's free, of course. Vu. email@example.com
