An Autodesk Maya script that helps to ease the pain of making pipes in maya. 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.
Alright, if that video shows exactly what you needed then by all means skip to the bottom to download it. If you are interested at all on the advanced version of the script then go ahead and watch the next video.
