"knotty Line" is a auxiliary mini tool for spline modeling.
It's draws a line with the set number of vertex.

Additional Info: 

Actually I was looking for a spline tool for making rope
for my personal simulations with Reactor,
but nowhere can find something similar, so I make my own.

Of course, anyone can use my script for many other tasks.
I'll not try to describe everything that could be done with this mini tool,
not directly, of course, but as an auxiliary method in spline modeling process.
This is a matter of imagination... but to acquire some idea,
I wrote a short example "How to make a ladder" in my blog.

Thanks guys! @k2000 -

Thanks guys!
@k2000 - interesting idea, well, this way will works as dividing spline, but if you like this feature then I'll think about it after the holidays.

[edit] At http://www.maxplugins.de/ you can find a spline modifier named HSpline, so you can try it as well.

Cheers, Anubis

2 Anubis. Nice script

Nice script mate.
There are some options to add - please try out making a spline with mouse click (just start and end points).
That would be really good!

Thanks
