    How to Model a 3 Strand Braid In Solidworks (not a spline twist)

    Kyle Cunniff

      Hi there,

      I've been looking around for a tutorial on making a 3 strand braid in solidworks (like a hair braid) but have only found spline twists for rope or the braided hose tutorial which for me at least is hard to understand how to make that work for what should be the simpler version. I've attached a jpeg of what I'm trying to make.


      I'm wondering if anybody has the interest to do show me some tips? I know other would be looking for it to. I've seen examples on z-brush, maya etc but none for SW.


      Any help would be appreciated.
