Blender Tutorial: Modeling Cables with Grease Pencil

Code Canyon


A quick tutorial on how to quickly model cables or wires using the grease pencil in Blender. It is ridiculously easy to model what was once a very time-consuming, frustrating, difficult task in Blender. It is actually fast and fun in Blender.

The same technique can be used to model noodles, string, rope, etc. The wires can also be parented to an object and be auto animated with the soft body dynamics OR you can apply the soft body modifier (by clicking “apply” on the soft body modifier).

Use a mix shader (part Glass and part emission for a cool fiber optics effect).

    How does your computer survive? The path creation makes like 12k verts each wire.

    How did you get to render so fast? I have set to gpu compute, but even with 3 wires my 1080 GTX is using forever to render this… (The soft body bake) – Edit
