Houdini Telephone Poles Tool, 2019.
This tool allows for the creation of any number of modular telephone poles placed along a curve or at points on a surface, which are then oriented at best angles to form a continuous line. Wires are simulated using vellum dynamics. All geometry modeled procedurally in Houdini.
