Corrugated Pipes with the Spline Wrap Deformer and a Cloner

This Five Minute Tip was inspired by one of my YouTube viewers. The viewer in question (Sean) asked what techniques I would use to create corrugated pipe that’s easily repeatable and can be deformed along a curving path. I immediately thought of using a MoGraph Cloner to repeat the pipe segment, a Connect object to glue the pieces together, and a Spline Wrap deformer to make it follow the pipe.

After creating a quick mock-up  I realized that it took me about 5 minutes, and thus it could make a great Five Minute Tip. Check out the video below for the full technique.

Here is a link to the sample file shown in the tutorial.
