I need to make the strings of my guitar and I have a problem with the part where the strings connect with the pegs. I need to make the string go around the pegs. Should I make them step by step the classic way without modifiers or is there an easier way?

Well you could use curves with a curve modifier and an Array modifier

Add Your curve: enter image description here

Adapt your curve: enter image description here

Add a new cylinder and assing it a curve modifier and an array modfier: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ @bstnhnsl Thats another way too! i think its a matter of choice, with the cylinder you have a little bit more control over the mesh $\endgroup$ – Luigi Pocay Jun 18 '18 at 12:36
