I think that Marionette would be perfect for a Catenary Curve Tool.

Each end of the curve would be individually defined by a 3D Node, and then you would specify the length and weight of the curve which defines the amount of sag.

Blender has a Python script tool exactly like this- would be great for Vw.

Bump. I can't believe VW doesn't have a catenary-curve tool in it.


There must be 100 uses for it for all kinds of design problems. Utility wires, zip lines, clothes lines, indoor & outdoor decorative swag lines/ropes/wires, rope barriers, indoor & outdoor hanging lights, rope & cable suspension bridges, etc.
