Reeper plugin, from our mates at codeworkers.de
Sounds like it comes straight out of a zombie movie, but don't underestimate this nifty little plugin.
This plugin allows the user to create ropes and knots in various patterns.
Of course the applications of this Plugin doesn't end here.
The plugin, as far as I know it is only available for C4D but there must be a 3DS Max version somewhere no doubt.
It's totally free, so enjoy!
