Using PaintEffects for Wires/cables in Maya-

I start by using the Paint Effects -Gold Brush. Then draw the wire/cable shapes.

Global Scale = width.
Sample Density = faceting.
Display Qualty = sides around.

display quality does not convert to polygons(?)

Shelf script: Convert to polygon,quadrangulate(optional)

you can still manipulate the sample density if you want.
Then assign new shader.
