Blender Cables

My current project Quadrilateral Cowboy has a fair amount of dangly cables.

danglycable

Here’s how I make them in Blender (I use version 2.49b):

  1. Create a cylinder.
    1. Vertices and Depth determine how detailed the cable will be.
    2. Deactivate: Cap Ends
  2. Rotate the cylinder to run along the X axis (the red line).
  3. Apply scale and rotation to the cylinder:
    1. Press: ctrl+a
    2. Select: Scale and Rotation to ObData
  4. Create a bezier curve.
    1. The bezier curve and the cylinder should both be at the same origin.

  5. Activate 3D on the bezier curve:
    1. Open the Editing panel (press F9).
    2. In the Curve and Surface area, click the button labeled 3D.
  6. Add a modifer to the cylinder: Array
    1. Change Fixed Count to Fit to Curve Length
    2. In ob, type your bezier curve’s name. (default: Curve)
  7. Add modifer to cylinder: Curve
    1. In ob, type in your bezier curve’s name. (default: Curve)
  8. Go nuts with the bezier curve:
    1. Select the last node on the bezier curve.
    2. Extrude the node. (press: e)
      blender
  9. Optional: bake the curve:
    1. Select the cylinder.
    2. Press: alt+c
    3. Select Delete Original

The Calling

I wrote and drew a four-page comic a couple years ago. It involves Santa Claus. Here it is:

For giggles, here is a time-lapse recording of the comic’s inking process:
