The pipe tool of your dreams!
An Autodesk Maya script that helps to ease the pain of making pipes. Before, you’d have to mess with the lofting features along splines that create terrible geometry. What inspired the creation of the script was my frustration when working on a concave cylindrical object that needed a a ton of pipes on it. If you are interested, please watch the video below going over the basics of how the script works.
If the last video was too “Simple” well then there is zPipemaker advanced. In this version it adds on the ability to use any mesh as your pipe mesh. This allows zPipemaker to be used as a one stop shop for an animated intro that says zPipemaker, rollercoaster tracks, trims, train tracks, and oh yea.. cooler looking pipes!
