    Don't think you can do a perfect rope cuz the "follow me" tool would make something like flex duct pipe instead of braiding. I did a chain once for a drawbridge but it nearly killed me Just make a pipe and leave it for Kerkythea to put a skin on.

    I'm wondering if, in the sketch styles, a single arc might look enough like a rope to qualify?

    Here's what I came up with for rope, and I'm pleased enough with it...I'm trying to get into the "approximate is good enough" P.O.V. that sketchup seems to require

    And there's also an image of where the "farm" is now.

    My idea didn't quite work but I did find a rope model in the user groups:

    I think I'm done this little project, at least as far as I want to take it.

    I'm also attaching the .skp file I saved it all in. Feel free to use it yourselves for any purpose at all. If you do use it, I'd appreciate knowing where, but that's not obligatory!
