mcjTransport, model/animate spline based tubes - Version 1 is out !!
Download page and manual --> https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts2/mcjtransport
using this script you'll be able to create curvy tubes in 3d space, right here in Daz Studio
the method is similar to mcjRibbons https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts/mcjribbons
( which, by the way, lets you model an infinity of things )
but makes use of something called "parallel transport" described here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_transport
you'll be able to create and adjust "control points"
based on those points, the smooth tube will be created by the script ( this takes only 1 or 2 second )
