fiber optic cable bending with motion

Question asked by Natalie Tremblay on Nov 14, 2017

Hello everyone!

I need to model the bending of a fiber optic cable as it is pushed forward through a rigid structure that has a jog to one side. I have tried to back into this using splines, the flex function, and motion studies, but I am not familiar enough with these techniques to achieve what I want to see. Has anyone achieved something similar? I am about at my limit with fiddling with splines in a sketch to see this action...
