Here's a quick tip about making cables with physics. Handy for example for making audio cables! The Blend file for this example scene can be downloaded from my website.

Hi, my name is Jan and I help companies by creating short videos for their websites and internal use, mostly as a freelancer for agencies. I post daily one-minute tutorials for Blender users and wrote the popular "Blender Secrets" e-books.


  1. I'm not sure whether to feel grateful and honored that you seem to have made a video based on my question following yesterdays video, or annoyed that you stole my idea! Either way, I want 50% of profits! But seriously, this is the same method I had previously tried, and when used with converting the mesh to a curve, instead of using the skin modifier, it is a nice technique.

    • I hope you're not genuinely annoyed :-) I often try to answer people's questions in comments by making a video, as that way everybody gets the benefit. To be honest I also get a lot of comments on different platforms (IG, YT, here, FB, Twitter, etc) and though I used to @ the person who posted the question originally, these days it's hard to keep track of where the comment originated (as I get a lot of comments, mails and DM's). So, thanks for the suggestion, sorry if it bothers you, which I hope it doesn't. Have a nice evening!
