Chain wire fence wire how to

Recommended Posts

Ok a 3d model. It's on a grid, so you only need to model a spline one side of the square rotated 45º.

Then mirror copy the spline to get the square keeping in mind that the wires loop around each other in the YZ plane.

Then sweep a circle along the spline, maybe 2mm diameter. Once you have the makings of the "square", group it so you can multi-copy it.


Keep the resolution low as it'll get really big depending on the amount of copies you make.


Hope this helps.

As the other approach: your wires are particular case of flattened helix:

Unless of course you need to RENDER the whole thing. In this case you might need to play with transparency and bump maps.
