Stepladder Tool in progress:

and a simple cable tool for telephone cables:

cable tool does not look very complicated, but having really stable ends and making the inner wire stay always on the inner side was not as easy as I thought first.

Hope you like it :-)

Base is a simple wire simulation on a curve, then I've resampled the curve
and added size and twist attributes via vopsop ramp to make twist and size adjustable.
With the attributes I've copy stamped points on the simulated curve.
Then I've created the final curve from the copied points and sweeped a circle on the curve.
To get stable ends the initial wire simulation is offsetted a little bit and used
as third input in the sweep sop to align the cross sections.
The main idea is that is is really fast in simulations, because there is only a simple curve to simulate and for my final anim it's ok to have collisions based
on the wire solvers “width” setting :-)
I have to clean up it a little bit, then I'll post it, maybe a duplicate tool is faster than a copy sop. I like to give it a try.
