How to 3d draw a wire
What is the best way of doing the wire in the picture attached on Autodesk Inventor 2014
the form is what iam looking for, not the looks of the wire.
if you want to define each wire of the cable you have to define the cross section on some position.
Then define the 3D way to join them, and finaly join them by using "Balayage" (french name, maybe sweep in english?)
That's not a piece of cake...
May be you can find a simple way by apply texture on a simple surface.
