Nice work! Any chance you could explain the method you developed to do this? I have wanted to make something similar several times for my models, had to do it the hard way, very time-consuming.

Since images (and videos) are being a hassle, I might try it this way:

Plugins used:

- Bezier Spline; by Fredo6
- CopyAlongCurve; by Anton_S
- Pipe Along Path; by TIG
- Joint Push Pull; by Fredo6
- Weld; by Smustard


1. Draw 2 reference lines (both horizontal)
2. Use 'Classic Bezier Curve' to draw a curve between the 2 reference lines
3. Select all and weld to a single shape
4. Next, draw a circle perpendicular to the top of the shape (remember the radius!) and turn it into a group
5. Activate Copy Along Curve, select the group followed by the straight line attached to it
6. Choose the number of objects you want and complete the operation
7. Select the curve, activate Pipe Along Path and make sure to enter the correct diameter (2 x the chosen radius of the circle) and segments
8. Explode all the objects (the generated pipe and circles) and use 'Intersect Faces - With Selection'
9. Used 'Joint Push Pull' to extrude segments - attention: this may generate some unwanted lines; use hide on them

Hope this helps! Basically: I drew a hose-shaped line, added the segments with Copy Along Curve, used Pipe Along Path for the hose itself and joined all the shapes together which allowed me to use Joint Push Pull!

Make sure to contact me if needed!
