  • Handy in general
    Hazem Mahmoud | October 31, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Nice tool , & I like the extra functions available with the wire once you apply it. a much help if you need good wires/ribbons & other shapes along curve so fast on the fly

    But it has 3 downsides:

    -It doesn't make automatic UVs -whether you make polygon or line/ribbon profile .. it makes life easier if you wanna tune those UVs a bit later than creating them from scratch specially if you are using it to make Hair Cards for example

    -No choice to control the width/scale along the curve length

    -MSI setup -I understand that maybe these auto excutable is much easier but for some people having issue to setup it in certain workstations/limited access then it's not helping

    Hi Hazem, Fist of all thank you for your review, I'm glad that you generally like the plugin. Let me answer your concerns: 1. UV support for know it's not planned in the near future, but if enough people will start requesting it I will implement that faster than I initially wanted. 2. This feature is planned for 0.4 version which should appear shortly after Maya 2020 release. 3. MSI installers on Windows are a thing that Autodesk App Store requires and they actually prepare them themselves and send them to me, so I cannot do anything about it, but I think they are quire handy in opposition to manually moving files and folders to a right place. If something is not working properly on your side you should share your problems with them.

    Zama Zama | April 23, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Really cool, especially for the 90° corner that maya always struggled with since ages.

    And the big bonus is that it's a node.

    Thanks
