finding it hard to describe but in essence i am looking to connect a straight rope (drawn as solid and straight extruded cylinder) between two lines in an assembly and change the length of the rope depending on the distance between the two lines. I would rather not redraw the object every time.
each top and bottom curve is also an object (pipe) in itself.
I attached a quick sketch and the photo below. This is for the hangers of a suspension bridge to make this problem more understandable.
Also some suggestion how to best mate in essence two ropes together would be appreciated.
