Simulating cable with stiffness at ends

Hello, I am trying to simulate a cable with some stiffness at its ends. Please refer to the following figure:

I believe some inputs vectors would be required to specify the cable direction at the ends, but I’m not sure how I can feed that into Kangaroo. (11.8 KB)

To add some bending resistance you can use ‘Rod’

By anchoring not just the ends, but the point after the first and before the last, you can fix the tangents. (12.7 KB)
