Update, now I can copy stamp my subnetwork so it generates different patterns for each pipe. And it has become alot faster to generate the mesh

looks cool! Can't tell if they are interpenetrating or not, so I guess it's fine .

pclaes, Thanks ! Well actually there might be interpenetrating since the “lift” factor was random, but I have no improved it so it takes previous layer hight + radius, only downside to that is that they became alot thicker, so I put in a multipler factor because you dont realy see intterpenetration that much as long as it's somewhat above …*phew*

roughsporty, Thanks ! what impressed me the most is the render times I get with Mantra, last pic was renderd under 5min..and since then I've improved quality and render times are still very good ..so making a little movie clip

Thanks guy's ! I have put togeather a sample file, It should generate something that looks like the attached picture.

File was saved with 11.0.573

the sample file is a earlier version before I added more complexity and safe guards so it should be pretty straight forward ! except for my strange naming convention

It can be easily rebuild to use drawn curves to become the child pipes to, but I went for generating that too, meaning I can copystamp and get different pipes
